City of Memphis may have violated our rights!
Thanks to some help from a local reporter (we will keep the name anonymous so he doesn't get harassed and sued) we were able to locate where the words "Blue Crush" were trademarked. Loyal readers will remember that we offered the above T-shirts some months ago. Once the City of Memphis (and possibly Director GODwin) caught wind of this, a threatening letter was sent to the supplier on official letterhead. The letter demanded our account be closed due to infringing on their trademark. As you can see above the shirt, the approved logo used by GODwin and the City of Memphis does not resemble the logo that we used. Were our rights violated? Did the City improperly force the closing of our account and loss of revenue? You be the judge. The plot thickens.
