Fight or submit to a change?

A few days ago we received an email from attorneys of the Twisted Sister, 80’s band, telling us how we violated the Federal Trademark law. They are claiming that by using the name Twisted Sisters Design/Creative and domain twistedsisterscreative.com, we are causing a dilution and confusion amongst consumers.

Do they really think that people will not see/know the difference between a rock band and two sisters designers and crafters? And if you need ones info/services would you be that easily confused if you came across the other?

They are also saying that nobody can use the name Twisted Sister or any variation of the name.twisted sisters creative - trademark lawtwisted sisters creative - trademark law

Don’t get us wrong we are not against the trademark law, we support the right to register and therefore defend your name. But to what extend can this go? When did they get the right on the use of whole words?

With a little research (thank you Internet :)), we found out that they are actually on a “Cease and Desist” spree. Turns out that there are 7 (and probably more) businesses, that got the same “threatening” mail. Now we are thinking: are they big bullies or just desperate for attention?
And if there are so many businesses that can live and work together in peace with the same name, why is this band so special?
Some of the businesses that are affected: The Twisted Sister House of Hunger, Twisted Sisters Cupcakes, Twisted Sisters Hair Salon etc..

So now we formed a fighting group of small businesses against “the Big Band”. All the medias are used and news are included: CBS Minnesota, 9 News, Kare 11
If you support us spread the word, share, like etc :) Tx!

So what do you think, should we fight for the name or succumb to the change? You never know, change might be good… And we might need to come up with a new name, do you have any suggestions?

Nažalost, leto je iza nas i iako to ne želimo, dolaze nam hladni dani… Održavanje nogu toplim je prioritet u našem svetu!

Nest Design Blog Sidebar Look

We’ve been working with the lovely ladies from Nest Design Studio on the redesign for their blog. They wanted a bit cleaner and fresher design for their ever growing taste.

Dandelion Nursery Decoration

We created this decorative stickers to lighten up a plain wardrobe that is now a nursery storage unit. Soon-to-be-baby-mama liked the stars and dots so much that we’ve put some on walls as well and it turned out very cute!

Napravile smo ove dekorativne nalepnice da osvežimo jednostavan ormar koji se nalazi u dečjoj sobi. Budućoj mami su se toliko dopale zvezdice i kružići da smo poneke zalepile i na zidove što je ispalo super!

DIY Summer Accessories, part 2

These funky bracelets were created on our summer vacation in Greece. We were inspired by the beach, the warm weather and the calming sounds of the waves.

The bracelets were not as easy to make as the red belt/headband/necklace – it’s not that the way they were made is difficult it’s just that it was a looong process. They are composed of crocheted i-cords (we used this i-cord video tutorial) and crocheted chains all tied together with a knot. They are quite stretchy so we can just slip them on.

The one with blue cord is called “The Beach” and the one with yellow cords is called “Sunset”, so when you wear them together you have “Sunset on the Beach” :)

line

Ove narukvice su nastale na letovanju u Grčkoj. Inspirisala nas je plaža, toplo vreme i umirujući zvuci talasa.

Narukvice nije bilo tako lako napraviti kao crveni kaiš/traku/ogrlicu – način na koji se prave nije toliko komplikovan koliko je heklanje ovih narukvica bio dugotrajan proces. Sastavljene su od heklanih i-cord-a (koristile smo ovaj i-cord video tutorijal) i heklanih lančića povezanih čvorom. Dosta su rastegljive tako da se lako mogu navući na ruku.

Narukvica sa plavom trakicom se zove “Plaža” a narukvica sa žutim trakicama se zove “Zalazak sunca”, pa kada ih nosite zajedno imate “Zalazak sunca na plaži” :)

DIY Summer Accessories, part 1

While selecting what clothes to take with us on our summer vacation, we realized that a few peaces desperately needed some sort of waistband or belt. So we made one! We crocheted this simple accessory using vintage red yarn that was an old top in its previous life – we love recycling!

It turns out you can wear that same “belt” as a necklace or as a headband. Neat, right?! ;)

line

Dok smo birale koju garderobu ćemo nositi na letovanje, primetile smo da nam je u nekoliko kombinacija neophodna neka vrsta trake za oko struka – pa smo je napravile! Isheklale smo ovu jednostavnu traku od vintidž crvenog prediva koje je u prethodnom životu bilo stara bluza – volimo reciklžu!

Ispostavilo se da taj isti “kaiš” može da se nosi i kao ogrlica ili traka za kosu. Divno, zar ne?! ;)
