Obvious Trademark Infringement on Etsy Front Page

onesieWhat really, really galls me (and probably you too) is that while Etsy is closing down the shop of one trademark infringer, it is promoting on its’ front page the shop of another infringer.

In this forum post, a seller dares to point out the obvious trademark infringement on the Etsy front page. This is the same infringement I commented on, prior to being muted, that brought on the Etsy shut-up and also led to my being shunned by fellow Etsy sellers.

While Etsy sellers argue back and forth about “what if Etsy closes this shop down and the seller has a license…,” I’m just sitting back laughing. ‘Cause I know there is no way in hell the seller has a license from Gerber to sell an American Apparel onesie.

    Hahahaha, I know! Plus, anyone who does use “Onesie” within the regulations knows how to phrase it properly and mark it with TMs and Rs … This is most definitely NOT one of those situations.
