    Wow. Fuck that place. I just bought some shit there, wish it wasn't too late to return it. I won't have any issues dropping them.

    I let bc.com know they were being dicks and would stop buying stuff from them until the bullshit was done.

    I’m done with them.

    Does the Mountain Goat community have representation yet?

    Those goats are infringing.

    Formerly Backcountry Delicatessen, Yampa Sandwich Company, is a locally owned sandwich shop featuring delicious, creative fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    from yelp: https://www.yelp.com/biz/yampa-sandw...amboat-springs

    That would explain the change of business name this summer.

    it was only 7 years ago they were so protective of that word they'd turn every usage of it in this forum to a hyperlink to their website.

    I wouldn't sweat it, there is no shortage of trademark infringement cases, it usually easier for the little guy to just change the name and/or fuck with the big guy

    a dude in Vancover made really nice ww helmets called his company NFA for No Fixed Adress , the big clothing company told him to cease and desist so he changed the name to FNA for Fucking No Address

    my GF had a yoga class called "Yoga for stiff guys" got the cease and desist letter from somebody 800 kms south in the big city who had trademarked " stiff " in a series of classes so she fucked around with the yoga teache/ lawyer a bit, a lawyer friend told her it was legit and she was at the point where costs incurred could be sued for so I came up with the name Manyoga it should roll off the tongue in one syllable when you say it

    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/life...article772078/

    here ^^ is a sucessful fuck you from some guys on Haida Gwai, they had a coffee shop Haidabucks so they get the letter from starbucks and they go on the CBC to say a Haida Buck is a male Haida and no fucking way they are gona change the name and meanwhile Starbucks is facing a PR nightmare and ends up back peddling


    I did check to see if Manyoga is trademarked, it does not appear to be but if we get the letter ... we will just change it again

    World has gone bonkers. Heard a story where a Kardashian was trademarking the star spangled banner because she received so many views on twitter while singing it to her baby. Fuq me

    OP, thanks for posting this.

    Fuck Backcountry dot com. What a bunch of dicks. I have bought a lot of stuff from them over the years. They just lost me as a loyal customer.

    Use social media to let them know. Like tag them on facebook with @Backcountry, or tweet at them. I tried posting on their FB page, but they moderate all posts, and the fact that there are zero visitor posts on my page tells me that they won't approve mine. But they cannot moderate a post I make on my own page that tags them.

    Wow. Well I used to spend a good chunk of money there. Going to draft an email to send them about why I am no longer a customer. I always felt good about supporting a local Utah company. Now I feel like a dumbass.

    It's like Lebron trying to trademark Taco Tuesday. It's just stupid. Do I smell a TGR boycott?

    To play devils advocate, maybe they are suing first so that they don't get sued by someone else who trademarks the name Backcountry. Essentially, they sue to protect their usage of the name?

    Looks like they sold out in 2015 to a private equity firm. Not surprising I guess that's what private equity firms do.

    This is so messed up. Another instance of lawyers run amok.
    I don't get how someone trademarking a generic term last year can go after businesses that have been using the word for years. Is there no prior use exemption to stupid trademark abuse??

    A YEAR AGO I FILED TRADEMARKS PROTECTING THE WORD "DOT” AND "COM". I'M SUING BACKCUNTRY FOR TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT.

    Hey d-bag - here's something for you to think about: maybe (just maybe) not everybody here has their little panties in a wad 24/7 and flies into a rage whenever somebody disagrees with them. Maybe these same mags don't take this place uber-seriously. Maybe this even includes the vast majority of the people who post here as opposed to you and like 20 other thin-skinned douchebags. Just something to think about. -JER
