Thanks to all who have sent info to RWA concerning trademarking of the word "cocky." We have been in touch with an IP attorney to seek advice/determine next steps. We appreciate info from both members & non-members, which can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
IP Attorney Marc Whipple offers additional insight into this matter on his blog.
RWA contacted Amazon to provide them with detailed info on this matter and asked if they would pause further removals/suspensions on books w/ titles containing "cocky" while this is being contested. They responded to say that they will not be removing titles from sale until this matter is resolved and have reinstated those they previously removed.
