Re: <nettime> Aveda - Trademark on "Indigenous"

I am not a lawyer (IANAL), not yet anyways - but from my somewhat informed 
view this could easily go either way in a US court, it really depends on 
what they do with it.  Personally, I think it could easily be called a 
"generic" term, something that can't be covered by a trademark. Politically 
they will get torn up over it. If anyone is interested in challenging 
Aveda's trademark on "indigenous" here is the relevant law which explains 
the why and how trademarks can be revoked in the US:
