Submission + - Reddit Emboldens Young Woman to Fight Trademark Troll, We Win (boingboing.net)

Faulkner39 writes: "Ali Spagnola, a Pittsburgh based musical artist, is an advocate of social media, free paintings, and alcohol accompanied partying. To unite the beer loving citizens of the internet, she composed 60 original songs and created a "Power Hour Drinking Game Album" based on the popular college pregame ritual. When a trademark troll was awarded rights to the term "Power Hour", he issued a Cease-and-Desist order on Ali to stop selling her game, had her albums taken down from Amazon and Rhapsody, and began bullying her on the internet and social media. Reddit was not amused, and quickly escalated her story to the front page. The online support encouraged Ali to stand up and fight for our right to binge responsibly. After a 3 year legal struggle costing Ali $30,000 of her own personal money in legal fees, Ali won, giving the internet the right to Power Hour freely. To celebrate the victory, Ali is now running a campaign to fund a Power Hour Freedom Victory Tour"
