Today I received and responded to what boiled down to a cease and desist Trademark Violation letter from General Cigar, for my Cigar Art involving their frontmarks, which is now just a portfolio here on the site. Since it’s not worth a penny to me to fight, I gave in and stopped offering the artwork for sale.
So as a result I am no longer supporting in any way, General Cigar. No more reviews of their products (unless one accidentally slips by because I didn’t realize it was under their umbrella), no more press releases, no more accepting them for advertising.
To be crystal clear I am not advocating consumers do anything. I am simply informing you of what I am personally doing regarding the site.
So there’s a big warning to anyone producing and selling anything with Brands/Logos such as any other kind of artwork, clocks, guitars, collages with bands, etc.
