This is old news but awhile back I decided to attempt to get the phase “Prairie Madness” trade marked. It is the name of my photo book that has been used to generate donations for prairie preservation. I realized without having the trademark that at some time in the future someone could obtain it and demand that all items with this phrase be eliminated from public view. It is an arduous task that did require me to get an online trade mark lawyer to help out. Overall cost was not horrible but it is a time consuming adventure.
