Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Trademark Tony strikes again!

@davidof, The FFS logo does get put on clothing available to buy. Maybe the SCGB is worried that someone will make knock-off clothing in China and capture the vast market for it among the general public, or maybe not.

OTOH, it could be a good excuse if gripped by a Gendarme - "I'm not really a Rep, I'm just wearing a jacket that I bought on the internet, I thought it was a nice colour".

Trademarks are for consumer sales. What financial benefit does it add? Would the time have been better spent on the finances?


Now no one else can start a similar enterprise using that trademark. It’s not like it cost more than a few hundred.

Meanwhile, snowHeads could be used by any.


& so what? SCGB have cunningly sown up their own initials as a TM but failed in their "mistake" to TM "snowheads". What are SCGB going to do with those initials that is so important that they didn't feel the need to do so for 100 years? Are they going to spend their time and lots of members funds with lawyers on litigating against Shropshire Council Green Bins or whatever for infringements? Do they seriously think that anyone would be deliberately infringing on them to flog holidays? Members should be asking the why - again fiddling while Rome burns.

The cynical observer would suggest that the sudden interest in this along with the involvement of a PE type guy in doing so is characteristic of trying to lock down as many assets on the books ahead of some investment or disposal event. Which would be weird wouldn't it for a not for profit members' club?


They are stopping other entities from using it. Particularly, I suspect, they want to stop anyone using it in a spiteful way against them. Now it’s legally theirs, all they need to do is send a polite email.

Obviously you’re now rather obsessed with the ski club. To the casual observer you probably seem like a really sad twat. ‘Disposal event’ your really are an idiot. You should seriously consider moving your face out of the flightpath of admin’s jizz.

And it's not as if SCGB ever, ever, did anything spiteful. And who's the 'really sad twat'? I think you're missing that rather obvious one Very Happy

that is true, a multicolour chicken that seems to have been cut in two by a pair of skis with FFS written on it Happy

Still Le Coq Sportif (the sporty male chicken) is also a big and successful brand with a similar logo so what do I know?

I did a search for SCGB and first result was "Ski Club du Gap Bayard" - I think the trademark hamster has some work to do.

They also have SCGB clothing, although judging by the top this young lady seems to have recently been released from prison.

A ski suit that can double up as your prison uniform could be useful in this context as well.

Now you've veered off piste into "search engine optimisation", a different beast. They have some work to do there.

If you're going to search by acronym, you pretty much know what you want,
which is why the obvious domain as previously mentioned may be worth redirecting.

I'm fairly sure none of these laws prevent a competitor picking your acronym and targeting advertising at people looking for it.

I'm rather glad that I'm a sad lady's front bottom as if Gerry thinks that cases of legal infringement are simply settled by sending a polite email he isn't the best judge of anything. Clue for Gerry -it isn't - if the situation is meaty enough your trademark is only as protected as you are prepared to litigate to defend it. But have fun with the above Ski Club etc

What you repeatedly fail to understand is that the SCGB isn't an obsession for anyone here but rather a source of amusement as it withers and dies, with fools like you blind to what you have done to it. It's sad really and I feel sorry for ex-members but anyone still a member has probably chosen their own funeral.

Normal people, (no you obviously) when presented with proof that they don’t legally have a leg to stand on, will just tend to comply with a polite email.

Anyway, from all this you have deduced that the ski club is going to have a ‘disposal event’? Listen to yourself. Lol

It's more credible than someone fundamentally wanting to use the SCGB nefariously in a ski context.

So is Trademark Tony going to spunk funds going after the Ski Club du Gap Bayard? Or are they just going to laugh at his polite email?

Still upset about BREXIT? Never mind. Knowing that I took your EU citizenship away from is, well, satisfying.

What do you think? Not that you’re capable of much thought. Probably best if you don’t tax your seemingly most redundant organ.
