This is going around the garden and food-centric blogosphere. A single family has trademarked a term that has been in use (print media) since the 80s, and is now sending out cease-and-desist letters for any blogger who dares use it to describe their lifestyle of growing their own food and living off their urban land.

The controversy is well-documented here.

Basically, I’m just angling for my own cease-and-desist letter from these idiots. It’s an abuse of trademark law, and perhaps the more people who flaunt it, the less likely they’ll be able to continue this stupidity.
