FLASHBACK: Our lovely response to ALEC’s cease and desist letter

In June 2016, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) had sent us a cease and desist letter, arguing that our existence as SMART ALEC was a trademark infringement.  We disagreed that it was a trademark infringement for several reasons.

On June 29, 2016, the date that we were supposed to cease and desist, SMART ALEC Board Member, Dr. Dwanda Farmer traveled to Washington, D.C., from her home in Baltimore, to deliver a bouquet of yellow roses to the offices of ALEC’s attorneys, with a card that said, “Thank you for acknowledging us.  Signed, the SMART ALEC’s.”  And the yellow dress was classic!
