    Thread for the Australian Vendors

    Not sure if this will be a drama here as it is at the moment in the USA, but this was on TasteYourJuice.com and thought I should repost it :

    This is a heads up for the vendors from another vendor…

    I’m not sure if you are allowed to post anything like this, but with as many viewers as you have, a heads up might be appreciated in the future, at least to other venders, that if they have any brand names on their sites, they need to remove them very quickly!!!! Camel is giving us HELL right now and I know many sites have their name on them. Obviously we have removed anything even remotely related to any brand name, Coke, 555, Hilton, any which way one can say Marlboro( not even a cowboy),ANYTHING that is patented, these companies are seeking any excuse for a lawsuit against ecigs! As if the government wasn’t enough bullshit to deal with…anyway word up and anything you can do might help others to avoid the situation we are in right now…
    Seems they are starting to get a little shitty about everyone turning to e-cigs and they are looking for ways to recoup some of their lost earnings ...... or something ...

    i always thought a camel was some sort of desert horse thing.
    without a logo .. i doubt they could push the issue, but, they have a lot of bored lawyers and a ton of disposable income to play with.
    something like a made up name like marlboro, for sure tho.

    easiest way around it .... tell em the name comes from your wholesaler in good Ol China, so they better get their international patent lawyers onto it
    Of course we all know China doesnt HAVE a section under its judicial system that deals with copyright infringement dont we ?
    Someone better tell the Arabs they have to rename the ships of the desert before Phillip Morris sues them LOL

    This is fair. I always wondered why and how they were getting away with it.

    I don't think they'll be able to stop vendors from using brand names in their descriptions, such as "designed to taste like camal cigs" etc.

    I don't see this as being an issue. The best tobacco tasting juices I've found are the ones that the vendor has obviously put effort into, takes pride in, and puts their own branding on it.

    If the cig companies think that they'll get money from these companies, they're about to be very disappointed.

    Very true. The best stuff always comes from imagination, not replication.

    Knowing the ciggy companies though, they have a justifiable reason for a lawsuit, as small as it may be and they will drag this out for as long as possible until the defendant runs out of legal funding. They don't care about winning or getting money from the defendant, they just want to put the competition out of business.
    Noe, ElDubya and mavinry4 like this.

    Seems to me that if you are naming something Camel, that is meant to be simulated smoke, then you are not talking about an animal but are rather trying to capitalise on another companies successful brand.
    Still, I've never sucked on a camel & I feel sorry for people that have

    so far as I can tell, camel CANNOT trademark the name camel as it is a common noun, it would mean every zoo in the world would have to change their signs.
    They of course have a trademarked image .. don't touch that it it will cost.
    I reckon you could sell camel eliquid though, it tastes like hair if anyone asks.
