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.

Memorial in Chicago Coming Up

All in the Chicago area are invited to tree planting on October 24 at 3 p.m. in memory of women who have lost their battle with Ovarian Cancer.  It will be held at the Doubletree Hotel & Conference Center North Shore located at 9599 Skokie Blvd., Skokie, IL 60077.  Names will be read before the planting, so anyone who like to submit a name and date of passing may do so by contacting gah_70@yahoo.com.

This is not sponsored by any organization.  It's just a group of people getting together to celebrate the lives of the brave women who fought this battle, but lost the war.
