eFoil is the generic term first coined by Don Montague of Jetfoiler many years ago,
it has been in the public domain since then.
It is a GENERIC TERM used to describe any Electric foil and has been used in this specific context for many years.
Don was one of the original forefathers of the site you are now viewing, he is a true professional and a promoter of open source technology in the name of just fair and equitable interests for all for the advancement in eFoil technology and as a whole as a sport.
Don is a true gem to the industry.
He’s a giver.
Now an Unscrupulous eFoil manufacturer from Puerto Rico, who has a history for taking credit for others accomplishments ( I wont mention any names) is attempting to register this generic description term which has been in the public domain for a significant time as their own!
Basically they’ve stolen from us, you and me,
The implications have tremendous potential to impact on all of us. By attempting to hoodwink us they’re showing their true colours.
It is deceptive and dishonest behaviour to impinge on others Intellectual properties and call your own.
By creating confusion in the same industry to the end user in the hope of improving a web search and general search terms for direct financial gain.
It is imperative that we stand united against the theft of our property and make ourselves heard.
It’s a threat to our community. The threat is real!
What can you do?
Send a letter of demand outlining the previous term eFoil has been in the public domain and used as a generic reference for an electrical foil for many years,
Demand a cease and desist on the grounds it creates confusion and is in the same industry.
The future and beyond in the name of social inclusion
