    I don't see what the big deal with backcountry is anyway.
    I say get some Olins and start mastering the carve on that fresh frontside corduroy, that's where it's at Jack.

    Lol. No such thing as bad press. You're all (marketing) tools.

    I'm happy being a tool that helped out a small company, a couple non profits, and forced a Goliath company to do the right thing.

    Are you proud that you were not a tool, and did not help anyone or anything? Cause it sounds like you are.

    So, I have to pay you If I want to use the term "dibs" to claim first right of refusal to purchase a pair of "Cease and Desists"?

    I'll send you 37 cents.

    You know if it is all this easy to claim common words at trademarks, why don’t we trademark stuff like “Town” and reap profits with cease and desist letters and offers to settle for nominal sums from every business that is formed and starts making any $ and has that in its name. Do the same for the next top 50 common geographical terms, valley, etc

    I have about half a dozen goat stickers laying around if any of you want to tag your gear up with steezy style.

    In the overall scheme of things, is backcountry.com a behemoth?

    Same dept that campaigned hard against weed legalization, saying it would be the “worst thing to ever happen to this state.”
    Worse than poisoning kids with leaded water? Yup. Weed.
    Worse than the race riots of the 60s? Yup. Weed.
    Worse than the mass auto-industry plant closings? Yup. Weed.

    Watched that anti-weed sheriff pal around with all the county politicos at their big open bar awards thingy, then watched him watch all the open bar drinkers walk right out to their cadillacs and drunk-drive away.

    Backcountry.com has been a shit site to shop at for a while now. A few years back, they changed all the units for backpack volume to cubic inches, despite the industry standard being liters. Looking for a new backpack, I had no way of comparing my current backpacks to the new ones without arduous conversions. So I went elsewhere. Same with ski weights, etc into pounds instead of grams.

    Fuck backcountry.com

    I'm on board with not shopping at backcountry.com, but
    "arduous conversions"? lol

    BC is currently backpedaling and admitting that they made a mistake, quote unquote. Too bad, I ordered a ton of stuff from them over the years as well as Steep and Cheap which is actually the same deal. I think there's a level of wealth where you lose touch of reality and your lawyers reasoning makes sense despite any moral compass whatsoever.

    Were people even buying the logo’ed collab merch?

    It seems like something a brand ambassador would be required to wear or an employee’s uniform in a brick/mortar store

    But I’m not seeing how the goat or backcountry logo adds any desirability to a jacket

    Wasnt Basin/Range the replacement for Stoic?Was that stuff selling?

    $500m annual revenue.

    Not a behemoth in the scheme but look at the rest of TSG’s holdings. I think it’s reasonably likely that pushed the brand strategy and supplied the IPLA lawyers. At a minimum they would have been aware and in approval of the direction ...

    But if you read the article, the CEO clearly says that he still wants to reach a deal with the companies they sued... which means he obviously still thinks he's right. So still, #fuckbackcountry
