[Edited out original text entry via `re-blog`, which really copies an excerpt of the original blog entry (in quotes) and then enters a comment into the responder's weblog site. Last night, I've read a thread about the copyright issues regarding the `re-blog` feature on the WordPress.com forum.]
Lots of clear blue skies and long clouds. Popcorn clouds last night. Hot for three days now. Lots of sweating and showers. Humid inside, had to open windows and use fan to blow out stink.
Good evening, children! Tonight’s word is `Trademark infringement`:
“Trademark infringement is a violation of the exclusive rights attaching to a trademark without the authorization of the trademark owner or any licensees (provided that such authorization was within the scope of the license). Infringement may occur when one party, the “infringer”, uses a trademark which is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark owned by another party, in relation to products or services which are identical or similar to the products or services which the registration covers. An owner of a trademark may commence legal proceedings against a party which infringes its registration.“
“Orgonite™ is a trademark belonging to Karl Welz, the inventor of orgonite, and is used on littlemountainsmudge.com for educational purposes.“
The guy has had his lawyers send emails to vendors using the word `Orgonite`. One guy, who knows him personally, finds him to be `nice`, which is a generic word to describe something positive and bordering on `bad`, really.
Anyway, if he uses that word for business, then that is his right. If he just uses it to gain notoriety and such, he is just another person out to put his name among those who don’t give a hoot. The pursuit towards legality is such a waste of precious resources: Nay, it costs money!
I wonder if I could use the word ORGONITE as a tag here at WordPress.com. What’s he going to do? Make a big deal with a poor person and a bored blogger? Anyone who goes that far has only business on his mind – no moral character and out for the money.
Good afternoon, kids! The word of the day is `Caveat emptor`:
- “Another way to say, “let the buyer beware.”“
- “In other words, consumers need to know their rights and be vigilant in avoiding scams.“
- “–noun: let the buyer beware: the principle that the seller of a product cannot be held responsible for its quality unless it is guaranteed in a warranty.“
- “n. The axiom or principle in commerce that the buyer alone is responsible for assessing the quality of a purchase before buying.“
Now, kids: When people get burned by a bad deal, can that person get the money back?
- For example, a gifted Native sold `zapping products` to clean the blood. Several people reported burns by that contraption. The seller tells the purchasers: `Go to hell! It’s your fault.`
- In another example, a fat blob from overseas took money that hasn’t been repaid. Several people (from Hawaii, Kentucky, etc.) posted their reports online, which can be Googled. The borrower(s) tell(s) the suckers: `Go to hell! It’s your loss.`
Children: Tell me. Who is at fault here – the fool or the fooled? Who will go to hell – the arrogant or meek?
The bigger question is: Will the government and authorities care to help? The answer is in the negative!
Well, we tried using boiled water to kill the alleged weeds sprouting from the cracks of the driveway. It took almost and hour! Paw would be the one pouring while I did the boiling.
Via the boy one day awhile ago, the Chinese said to use boiled water to kill the weeds. We will see if this technique works. If not, he’s using the `environmentally-incorrect` chemicals for faster results.
For me, the weeds look like flowering ground covers of purple and some yellow. The dandelion are the fiercer version of flowers – all growling and yellow, too. But the roots are deeper than the normal ground covers.
