Thinking Liberally Media Sues Chuck DeVore for Using Trademark on “All The Best”

Thinking Liberally Media, the publishers of the LiberalOC blog, has filed a lawsuit against Chuck DeVore, a candidate for third district board of supervisors-failed US Senate candidate-and former state assemblyman from Irvine, for infringing of the copyright infringement for DeVore’s persistent and insistent use of the copyrighted phrase “All The Best.”

“It sickens us that a hard right wing Republican like Chuck would use our signature phrase without our express permission,” said publisher Chris Prevatt.  “This is worse that announcing a toxic waste facility in the toney Turtle Ridge neighborhood of Irvine.”

DeVore signs off all emails and blog comments with the phrase “All the best.” He has ignored cease and desist letters. 

The suit asks for damages in the form of DeVore to cease and desist from being a candidate for public office and requests he return to work in the private sector.  And six of his wife’s pies.

          Well, let me clear up a few things for you.

          We posted a youtube video. That video containde material produced by Mr. Collins and it was credited to him. as the video was public, it was published here under the principle of fair use. Mr. Collins is free to argue a violation of his copyright with the producer of the youtube video. Liability for rebroadcasting a youtube video that may have violated Mr. Collins copyright cannot be assigned to this blog.

          Finally, Mr. Collins has my email address, and we have used his material with his permission before. He is free to contact me if he’s got a problem with our posting of the video. It was a news story and we wrote about it and provided commentary. Thats kind of what we do here.
