Take Back Urban Home-steading(s) Day of Action Petition. Sign it!
As I have mentioned here, here and here, 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.
As a community, we are petitioning the Derveas family to cancel these trademarks. We do not recognize the legitimacy of these trademarks and are boycotting all Derveas products and digital properties until they decide to play nice. These terms are not their invention and as a community we are fighting to take them back!
