    That's beautiful. Part of me thinks that the goat should be upside down, but decapitated and hog-tied really works nicely.

    If they were going to aggressively defend it they should have sued Alibaba for registering backcuntry.com. Alibaba is in a position to actually compete and confuse consumers, after all. Sending C&D's to people not in the online retail business so they can claim they defended something they could never actually defend in a real court is seriously weak--like Specialized trying to defend Fuji's Roubaix tm without permission.

    I'm not sure the GSA should be sullied with goatfuckery, but I like the idea generally. Shirley there must be a proper use for this bag of goat stickers?

    I always found Evo cooler. They sell more of the raw dog PNW brand stuff. I actually haven't looked into Evo's ethics though, tbh.

    Now I will remember to never give Backcountry my money though, thanks for this post.

    IPLA Trademark Law is duing the suing, Goatfuckers

    Stop trying to fight and see if you can help. For instance, their legal team at IPLA Trademark Law doesn't rank well for the term Goatworthy (as it should). Nor does it rank for the term Goatfucker (goat fucker), as it definitely should, since that's what they're doing to the brand.

    His shops (and website) do pre-date Backcountry.com. Would love to see him take them on... Regardless, I'm done with backcountry.com...

    I went through a wild and crazed stage where I purchased everything online back when backcountry.com and steep and cheap new and shiny.

    Not so much anymore. Except for closeouts and some other odd ball stuff, Iíve really returned to purchasing stuff locally, and second hand at that. Their prices arenít all that great, especially on newer MAP stuff.

    What do you expect from MegaCorp? Theyíre not here to help you. And oh yeah, screw the little guy. Any semblance of coolness with BC went out the door when MegaCorp bought it.

    I never got the whole goat sticker thing. It basically says I buy my shit online and screw the local ski shop.

    From a quick google search, it looks like backcountry access was founded 2 years before backcountry.com.

    Hopefully BCA sues backcountry.com and makes them change their name. (Or are they owned by the same people? That'd kinda ruin that plan.)

    Not owned by the same people. They interview Bruce Edgerly in the article.

    They donít care about few cheap hardcore skiers business but they do about general public that uses first link from using google. Every time you see the sticker, yell out backcountry.com sucks and let the gapers know why they will always be a gaper as long as they support that business.

    Next person who gets hurt in backcountry should sue them.

    Donít they own a few other sites like SAC and Competitve Cyclist? Make sure to boycott those too.

    Iíve bought a ton of stuff from BC.com but now Iíll just go to REI.com or something.

    Because "backcountry" is a common word used in the industry, and one company trying to prevent the rest of the industry from using that word is bullshit.

    If Ford tried to trademark "pickup truck" or Starbucks tried to trademark "latte," that would also be bullshit. But those companies are smart enough to realize that trying to trademark those terms would be dumb.

    are you just trolling? I don't understand why this topic is bringing out this kind of stuff from you.

    Trademark infringement, and trademark disputes, happen all the time. And this one is not different at all, ski gear is no different. But saying it is no different than all the other types of infringement disputes is pretty meaningless. Because in all of those disputes, there are specific facts that either make it a justified suit for infringement or not a justified dispute. So yes, this is a run of the mill trademark infringement issue. In which one party is vastly overreaching because they have the financial resources to bully small actors. Which is a run of the mill tactic, and still an abhorrent tactic. What makes this different is simply because it's related to a topic we care about, so people are more sensitive to the reprehensible business decision made by backcountry.com

    Yeah, this is pretty fucked up. I know lots of times companies hire firms to handle their trademark enforcement, and since these firms need to enforce trademarks to stay in business they get ever more petty about who they sue. I hope that maybe this is a case of an outside firm getting over ambitious and BC will reign it in now that there is some backlash. I can't say I'm optimistic about this, though. For now, fuck em.
