Default Worlds and Summit Bows & Apparel

Just wanted to give you all the heads up that Varsity Spirit Corporation has a Trademark on the use of The Words "Worlds", "The Cheerleading Worlds", "The Dance Worlds", "Summit" and "The Summit."

I have had my attorney do the research on this and they do have the right to sue any of us for using those terms on pretty much anything relating to cheerleading or that can be associated with cheerleading specifically bows and sports bras.

I would think that using Mickey ears on bows would also be a no-no but I also see that everywhere on bow sites.

Wow! How many bow people have been using "Worlds" on bows for years now? I wonder why they started it now.

I have no idea but many people got the same letter from what I am told. I never would have thought it would be a problem. I always worried about the minnie ears but I was told I did in such a way that it was legal.

I never lead anyone to believe this was an official bow or bra.

This is where what Nancy is doing makes really good business sense. Selling the kits. I myself sell the rhinestone transfers, but do not make the bows. Varsity trademarking the word in specific items can only referece finished product (bows, sports bras) that are sold and reporduced with the trademarked word(s) on them. However, if an individual makes a bow for themselves with the word "worlds" on it, not to resell and make a profit off of it, there is really nothing they can do about it......

I see why Nancy went into retirement! They are going after everyone. My attorney did all the research and they are right! Why they didn't do anything sooner, I have no idea.

Well..... I just got tagged on Etsy. I have a graffiti bow I totally forgot about that says "Worlds 2013" on it.

Tried to reply on my phone earlier but it cut me off. So as long as I keep the graffiti bow off my Etsy site I should be fine right? I was looking at another bow company the other day on facebook and she is still posting Worlds and Summit bows and letting people know that she would have them at a competition this weekend.

So I took the bow off that said "Worlds" and changed my wording but posted a new picture. Will I get tagged again? The bow doesn't say anything on it right now so "Worlds" is no where to be seen.

This was part of the email notice:

1) Etsy received a notice from Luke P. Cantrell ([email protected]), representation for Varsity Spirit Corporation. The notice said that Varsity Spirit is the owner of trademark registrations for the mark THE CHEERLEADING WORLDS (and design) (U.S. Registrations Nos.: 3444342, 3418800, and 2999331), THE DANCE WORLDS (and design) (U.S. Registration No. 3494984), and THE SUMMIT (Federal Serial No. 85619096). According to the notice, certain material on Etsy is not authorized.

Sorry I did not respond sooner. You should be ok now. I am so sad Nancy went into retirement. Yella Ribbon was always my favorite. My daughter never got to own a Yella Ribbon Bow. Even though I make them, she always wanted a YELLA! Because the business is the way it is, I never ordered because I never wanted Nancy to think it was to copy it. I have come across so many of my former customers now selling Bows and some of my current ones. Do I refuse to sell to them? I do everything 100% legitimately. I report my income, I incorporated my business and I pay sales tax. All these kids that have bow businesses, do NOT report their income do NOT pay sales taxes and it is just not right!
