  • In case you didn't know, the word "bushcraft" is trademarked

    While this is not new, it did create quite the buzz in the survival community.A company registered the word, even though it's a pretty common one. Plus, others have used it commercially before, according to the wikipedia page:

    The word bushcraft was trademarked by Bushcraft USA LLC. The application was submitted July 30, 2012 and issued November 12, 2013.[2] This trademark is a service mark, for the general use of the word bushcraft and is not limited to electronic forms of communication or commerce. However, the validity of this TM is in question since the Mark was used in commerce, by Mors Kochanski in 1988, 24 years prior to Bushcraft USA making claim to the Mark.

    Link to the trademark/service mark:

    I find this move uncalled for. People have been using this for a long time, so I don't find it fair that a company can force another company to change its name just because it has the word "bushcraft" in it.
    Always stay safe,

    Good lord. Next we'll hear about someone trademarking the term "Prepper" or "Survivalist". I agree this is nuts!
