Say No to Corporate Bullying: Tell Chick-fil-A to withdraw its opposition to the slogan “Eat More Kale.”
Bo Muller-Moore sold his Eat More Kale t-shirts for over 13 years at music festivals and farmers’ markets. Chick-fil-A threatened Muller-Moore with a cease-and-desist letter -- but he hasn’t backed down. When Muller-Moore filed a trademark application to protect his slogan and small business, Chick-fil-A submitted a letter of protest resulting in a preliminary rejection from the Trademark office.
Muller-Moore appealed the ruling and fears a drawn-out and costly legal battle. If the Trademark Office doesn’t change its mind, Muller-Moore faces years in court, just like in the Starbucks/Charbucks case. We can't allow corporations to bully average Joes and claim ownership over everything through spurious patents and trademarks, especially something like a small-town artist’s quirky slogan.
