3 Easy Things We Can Do to Support Denver Urban Homesteading in Trademark Court!

PermacultureFlower_280x272
“The terms urban homestead and urban homesteading are generic and widely used; they should not be the exclusive property of a single, privately-owned corporation. USPTO, please cancel the trademark.”

Do you agree? Then please do one or all of the following:
1) copy the statement – or phrase your own! – and post it in the Recommendations area on the USPTO’s facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/uspto.gov
2) send them an email:  TMFeedback@uspto.gov
3) pick up the phone and inform Acting Director of the USPTO, Teresa Rea, of your position: (571) 272-8700
And if you can, post this on your page as well, and have friends and family do one or all of these actions.If the Trademark Office hears this from many people, they will be more inclined to cancel Jules Dervaes’ trademark/s.  Dervaes had no right to hijack a term that’s been used for well over a hundred years, by government, ciizens, and courts.We need your help! Think about it — this is for anyone who will ever want to use the phrase in a blog, on a T-shirt, in a book, on the gates of their Urban Homestead — this is important. Please take a moment out of your day — right now would be perfect — and let your voice count.
___________________________________If you’d like to know more:Cancellation of the trademark will liberate those facebook pages and other publications and organizations that were shut down or silenced at the request of the Dervaes Institute Corporation.

“According to UC-Davis, ‘an urban homestead is a household that produces a significant part of the food, including produce and livestock, consumed by its residents. This is typically associated with residents’ desire to live in a more environmentally conscious manner’.”
