Petition to help small business

This petition is against corporate bullying.
Vermont's own, a small, quirky family business, is attempting to secure a federal trademark for the business name they've been using for at least ten years "EATMOREKALE.COM". Corporate Goliath fast food chain CHICK-FIL-A is blocking their attempt alleging EATMOREKALE.COM confuses CHICK-FIL-A customers. They claim that Bo's one man t-shirt printing business is infringing on their business and profits. Um...yeah...okay.

This isn't the first time they have tried to shut down Bo's busniess. 5 yrs ago they attempted to shut his website down and they wanted him to send his entire inventory to them to be destroyed. Bo fought back and they backed off. NOW they are blocking his attempt to secure a fed. trademark.

Please sign the petition and take a stand against big business bullies!!

  1. I signed the petition when you first posted it on facebook. Reminds me of when the Wrap N Mat company shut down my Etsy store for infringing on their profits.
