So by now my readers know that The Derveas family trademarked the terms "Urban Homestead" and "Urban Homesteading." The use of these terms is prohibited on blogs, facebook page names/ titles, print (book or article) or any other form that can be used for profit. If you use the term you must use the TM symbol and "specifically identify products or services from the Dervaes Institute." The Dervaes family have had facebook pages with the terms Urban Homestead and Urban Homesteading in the name shut down without first notifying the owners of the pages.
We in the Urban Homesteading (there will be no regard to their improperly awarded trademark here) community have come together to fight the injustice of the actions taken against those who use those words.
Today it is our goal to help Denver Urban Homesteading by spreading the word about donating to help them file a petition to remove the trademark on the words urban homestead and urban homesteading! Thanks for your support. Click on the link below to donate:
