    Is Backcountry.com going to sue me?

    I have a handful of self-published books, all with "backcountry" in the title. Think, Backountry Ski Guide to X, and X Pass Backcountry Ski Guide. They are for sale on Amazon.

    Not being facetious -- genuinely concerned/curious. Was not a worry until I saw that one of the parties sued is a non-profit called Backcountry Babes.

    I'd say it's more likely now than it was 10 minutes ago.

    Ice, has OP given you his address so you can send your invoice?

    best defense is a good offense.... sue them fuckers first. settle for them changing their name plus 3 times all profits in damages.

    there's probably a thousand different guidebooks with "backcountry" in the title.

    but just to be safe you should rename them all to the "goatfuckers guide"

    It'll probably take them a while to get to you. https://www.google.com/search?tbm=bk...ry%22+in+title

    GREAT NEWS!!!

    A quick search of the USPTO Trademark database and US Copyright Catalog shows NO results for "Lamb Expeditions"... surprisingly.

    I say appropriate this valuable piece of IP and rename all your works accordingly post haste.

    I'll PM my engagement letter and invoice.

    I did not get a hit on a tradename search for "Goatfucker" "Goatfucker's" or "GōtFkrz"
