Our Copyrights, Trademarks and Service Marks
Every paragraph, or part thereof, on every page currently or previously published on this website is an original work by Mark Kehrli. You may not copy anything that has been written on this site without first obtaining, and then retaining, written permission. I highly suggest that you research the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, then research how takedown notices work at Lumen, formerly Chilling Effects. I use a service called Copysentry from Copyscape to automatically detect and document plagiarism.
Many of the descriptions used to illustrate ideas or convey thoughts are original works. You do not have to copy my exact words to be in violation of my copyright, you only have to convey my original idea, thought or description. For example: "Understanding the five needs of tilapia" is an original work, conveyed in a way that has never been done before. Re-writing this work using different words would still constitute copyright infringement.
The following are trademarks of Mark Kehrli and Lakeway Tilapia:
Food Grade Tilapia®
Food Grade Blue Tilapia™
Food Grade Blue Fingerlings™
Food Grade Nile Tilapia™
Food Grade Nile Fingerlings™
Food Grade Wami Hybrid Tilapia™
Food Grade Wami Hybrid Fingerlings™
Note that the trademark "Food Grade Tilapia" has been registered with the US Patent and Trademark office. This fact does not diminish the severity of violating non-registered (or common law) trademarks as registration is not required for a trademark to be valid. However the registration does establish a date that can be used in court. Adding or changing letters or words to these trademarks still constitutes infringement.
Note: Our trademarks have been established to identify the products created by our proprietary culling techniques. All of them are fist use in commerce, first use in market, registered, or common law and have been used continuously on products sold by Lakeway Tilapia.
The Tilapia Farming Experts℠ is a service mark of Lakeway Tilapia and Mark Kehrli.
