Feed Techdirt: Hospitality Industry Group Pushes Back On Portland's Attempt To Trademark Bully A Local Brewery (techdirt.com)

Just a quick update from Portland, Oregon, folks. After the city engaged in some truly impish behavior by trying to bully aside a local brewery that has a trademark on Portland's iconic jumping-deer sign, there have been no further negotiations on a resolution between the two sides. See, the city of Portland really wants to license the trademark for the image of the sign to national and international macrobrewers, whereas Old Town Brewing just wants to have the same trademark rights it has legally held for that image in the alcohol industries since 2012. You might have thought that a refusal of the mark by the USPTO would have ended this story. You would be wrong.

Apparently, the city has filed multiple trademark applications in the hopes that something, anything, will get approved. This is according to a Portland hospitality industry group, which has taken notice of the city's actions and is firing off angry letters to its own mayor as a result.

The Old Town Hospitality Group, which counts 25-plus restaurants and taverns, said in a letter to Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler that the city is "wasting taxpayer money." The issue relates to a trademark held by Old Town Brewing on the "leaping deer" logo, which adorns the "Portland Oregon" sign above the Burnside Bridge.

The Old Town Hospitality Group called on the city "to stop filing trademark application after trademark application for an image that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has repeatedly determined is confusing. Tell the city’s attorneys that it is wrong and an abuse of power to attempt to bury Old Town Pizza Brewing in legal fees."

It's worth repeating that Old Town Brewing is in Portland. Its patrons, and likely its owners, are constituents of the very city actively trying to pretend its trademark doesn't exist while burying the tax-paying business in legal fees for no legitimate reason. Simply wanting really badly to license a trademark it doesn't own doesn't justify the city's actions. And, now that it's not just the brewery pushing back, but an industry group of member companies along with it, it might just be a matter of time before enough of the regular public gets wind of this and City Hall has a very real problem on its hands.

Or it could stop harrassing a local business, I suppose, but that seems like an awful lot to ask.

Hindsight is easy with this kind of thing. The real problem is that nobody knows when the Bitcoin bubble is going to burst (which it most definitely will). People who make money on bubbles are those who get out before the bubble bursts, not once it's already begun.

So yes, you could have made a lot of money. But Bitcoin could also have burst not long after it hit $700 and you could have lost it all. The bubble could burst tomorrow. Or it could linger for another year and burst at $32,000. Or it could partially-burst, then grow again even bigger, then have a crash of monumental proportions. Ultimately, nobody knows, and it's almost impossible to tie Bitcoin to any fundamentals that could be used to judge whether its value is reasonable or not.

So by all means, invest in Bitcoin. But only do it with money you can afford to lose.

This is a myth. When you factor out the high infant mortality rate, average life expectancy in the Roman world was somewhere around the late 50s. So a little under half of everyone who made it to (say) age 10 could be expected to live into their 60s.

rehmke writes: Did you know that hemp seed has a uniquely nutritious fatty acid and protein profile? This makes it an ideal health supplement for both animals and humans. The market for hemp-based products is on track to grow by more than 700% by 2020, becoming a $2.1 billion segment. However, due to long-standing legal restrictions, hemp technologies lag behind other agriculture products, despite surging demand for both industrial use as well as an alternative protein for livestock feed. New West Genetics is leveraging its experience in modern plant breeding and genetics to provide grain that has been bred for optimized regional adaptability: the seed will have high yield, germinate well, and perform with uniformity and stability.

The Silicon Valley Paradox: One In Four People Are At Risk of Hunger (theguardian.com) 372

Zorro shares a report from The Guardian: One in four people in Silicon Valley are at risk of hunger, researchers at the Second Harvest food bank have found. Using hundreds of community interviews and data modeling, a new study suggests that 26.8% of the population -- almost 720,000 people -- qualify as "food insecure" based on risk factors such as missing meals, relying on food banks or food stamps, borrowing money for food, or neglecting bills and rent in order to buy groceries. Nearly a quarter are families with children. "We call it the Silicon Valley paradox," says Steve Brennan, the food bank's marketing director. "As the economy gets better we seem to be serving more people." Since the recession, Second Harvest has seen demand spike by 46%. The bank is at the center of the Silicon Valley boom -- both literally and figuratively. It sits just half a mile from Cisco's headquarters and counts Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg among its major donors. But the need it serves is exacerbated by this industry's wealth; as high-paying tech firms move in, the cost of living rises for everyone else.

The scale of the problem becomes apparent on a visit to Second Harvest, the only food bank serving Silicon Valley and one of the largest in the country. In any given month it provides meals for 257,000 people -- 66m pounds of food last year. Because poverty is often shrouded in shame, their clients' situations can come as a surprise. "Often we think of somebody visibly hungry, the traditional homeless person," Brennan said. "But this study is putting light on the non-traditional homeless: people living in their car or a garage, working people who have to choose between rent and food, people without access to a kitchen."
