On the left is the SAVE campaign logo from Regions Bank that started last year, 2009. On the right is the SIOA logo that the Directors of SIOA Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer started using April 5th, 2010, see link click here .
Is it just me or do they look a wee bit similar with the same block style capital letters and the same “S” letter at the begining of the 4 letter logo and with two letters stacked upon two other letters and with one letter tilted to the right? Hold on. Wait a minute. The Regions Bank version has a guy riding a bike. Never mind, it’s clearly different.
STOP THE ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA GROUP REFUSED US GOVERNMENT TRADEMARK, BLOGGERS ROBERT SPENCER AND PAMELA GELLER SHUT OUT AGAIN.
A federal agency has rejected a request for a trademark by the organization “Stop Islamization of America” because its name may “disparage” Muslims. The group launched by Atlas Shrugs blogger Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch has drawn national attention for its bus-sign campaign offering support for Muslims who want to leave Islam. CAIR the Muslim ”support” group had called Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller bigots in the Miami Heralad, (The Miami Herald News Miami-Dade).
Now the SIOA group reports the U.S. government has refused its request for a trademark designation for its name.
U.S. TRADEMARK APPLICATION NO. 77940881 – STOP THE ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA
The applied-for mark refers to Muslims in a disparaging manner because by definition it implies that conversion or conformity to Islam is something that needs to be stopped or caused to cease. See attached dictionary definition. The proposed mark further disparages Muslims because, taking into account the nature of the services (“providing information regarding understanding and preventing terrorism”), it implies that Islam is associated with violence and threats. See attached dictionary definition.
