Our sister company Process Media has been involved for five years in a legal action regarding a trademark on the phrases “urban homesteading” and “urban homestead.”
This article by Gustavo Arellano will give you some background on the subject. http://blogs.ocweekly.com/stickaforkinit/2011/02/adam_parfrey_of_feral_house_fa.php


We’re very happy to say that this lengthy battle now seems to be over, and it appears that Process Media and authors Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen have won the dispute. The trademark for “urban homesteading” is now rescinded and that judgment now gives us the feeling that the trademark for “urban homestead” will also be rescinded.

Glory days. We thank the good people at EFF and Winston & Strawn LLP with all our heart.
