Because the Porsche Club Of America has a trademark on the word "Treffen" in the early 80's we are not to use any phrase with this word. Our show will be called Things East. There will also be a change to the show in the west to Things West. This is not April Fools it's for real. Trademark # 1249324. Facebook has more info. Guess we won't invite Porsche's.

Put the words together, Kubeltreffen. Now you have a new word. Get your own copyright on this word.
Germans do this a lot, I see it on prints all the time. Kabelschlepp and Pneumatikschrank come to mind. I have even seen where they run three or four words together to make new words, but I dont recall any this early in the a.m.
Even the word Volkswagen is an example of this. Good Luck

We tried that. Was told that any use of the word would still be a lawsuit. Let the " Special People" have their way. We are not like that.

Ummm,

I've got a trademark on the words "things", "east", and "west".

Also, "it", "the", "and", the vowels - and sometimes "y".

Just thought I'd let you know before the lawsuit kicks off.

Mark
