    Default Trademarks - careful!

    Here is something that we might all want to be aware of.

    "The Easter Bunny" (BTW, that is what we need to call this person now, because any reference to any part of his name is a trademark issue - thanks for the idea Munchy!) has stopped me in my tracks again!

    Better tell all of your friends who are named "Geo$ffrey" and any other people who bear the name NA$SE, that they must change their names.

    Read on......

    It is germane to point out that rosacea sites are popping up by the hundreds as the disorder continues to grab the attention of the medical world. There are now many sites that are illegally using my endorsements or my name without permission. There are also websites that are mimicking my web site and book. In order to help you sift through the different sites and e-commerce venues, let me list my trademark names that cannot be used without my written permission:

    Dr. Geoffrey Nase
    Dr. Jeffrey Nase
    Dr. Jeff Nase
    Dr. Nase
    Geoffrey Nase
    Jeff Nase
    Geoffrey
    Nase

    Hi Millie

    You do have me on the hop tonight!

    Ah, well let me say that it is not illegal to use the word "Geoffrey" etc. or to quote a small part from a web site or book, giving reference (full credit, as you have pointed out).

    Btw, I haven't noticed hundreds of new Rosacea sites popping up but then, I am not scouring the Internet all day and night looking for them!

    Your words of caution are good. I just don't think we need to be too worried really. Although, perhaps best if we just don't discuss 'that' issue much anymore, as it tends to stir up a hornet's nest.

    I've read most recently that posters, and admins/mods, are not legally liable for slander or what have you on support forums.

    This is just another example of sabre rattling and a load of BS from the bunny. Remember when the department of the dark arts was investigating this site, and going to shut it down? It's just more of the same.

    Happiness is a choice.

    You have a brilliant sense of humour girl! I so love the Harry Potter series. What should the next movie be titled?

    Harry's next Movie is: The Order of the Pheonix

    Bunny's could be: The Leaky Cauldrin Institute featuring Wicked Wands of Wonder: the newest in Rosacea Treatment
