Teal Toes™

The lawyers made us do it.

First, the good news:  We're trademarking the phrase Teal Toes™, and that's going to allow us to ensure that anyone else who uses the phrase does so in furtherance of our mission: to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

We're still working out how we want to allow people to use our trademark.  We're inclined to be liberal about it, because writing about Teal Toes™ helps to spread the word, and that's our mission.  The lawyers are helping us to craft a license that reflects that, and we hope to have it posted here soon.

All of that is good.  Hey, we like our lawyers.  They've done a ton of great work for us, pro bono, to help us get underway.  We could never have come so far without them.

Now the bad news, and you've probably already noticed it by now: the lawyers say that in order to protect our trademark of the phrase Teal Toes™, we have to assert our ownership of it every time we use it by adding the little ™ at the end of it.  We can no longer just write "Teal Toes™" without the "™":  it always has to be "Teal Toes™".  That's in our logos, text—everywhere.  The ™ can be small, but it has to be readable. (Once our trademark application is granted, the ™ will change to an ®, but same difference.)

So, we're sorry for that extra little bit of ugliness.  It's a price we pay to keep control of the Teal Toes™ idea and make sure it's always used to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

Teal Toes, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) exempt organization!

Effective July 7, 2009.
