A company that primarily sells posters of pornographic images and cars on Amazon is selling a poster of a Caspar David Fredriech painting that we posted once years ago and is using the name “Cirsova” in the listing.
Cirsova is a unique word that was not used for anything prior to the existence of this blog, the publishing company and the magazine it publishes.
Amazon’s IP protection department, however, refuses to act, claiming first that we failed to make proper “identification of the intellectual property right asserted” and later claiming that our rights were unenforceable.
All we want is the name “Cirsova” taken out of the product listing; the company can sell their posters and their porn–we just do not want our company and magazine’s name associated with them!
If you’ve downloaded it and liked it, review it! Gimme a star(or five. Preferably 5)!
Or, if you really liked it, you could buy a nice dead-tree-pulp version from Lulu. The promo code should still be good for 15% off your entire lulu order, so grab some other swag while you’re there: FWD15
