Backcountry.com Sues BDR and others

I hope to make everyone in this community aware of the recent legal strategy that online retailer Backcounty.com has adopted regarding attempts to protect their trademark over the word 'backcountry' and apparent efforts to attain exclusive use of the term.

They have sued many small businesses using the word 'backcountry' in their name, even those who do not sell or market products or services that compete with their online business.

This article from the Colorado Sun highlights a few specific cases and their outcomes

The last few paragraphs of that article covers how the beloved Backcountry Discovery Routes non-profit is being targeted by Backcountry.com. I applaud the resistance that BDR's attorney is taking to the action and hope that they do not succumb to the gross legal action taken by Backcountry.com

I do not want this to be a thread to promote bashing or boycotting Backcountry.com; just hoping to spread awareness of their actions since BDR routes are a source of riding inspiration and memories for many of us!
