So @faleenahopkins is trying to trademark not copyright the word #cocky.... that also clearly does not apply... the word cocky and it’s commonly used definition by romance/erotica writers began long before book one in her series in June of 2016. Also on the cover of said book there is no trademark symbol. Therefor it is my understanding that another author clearly can use this word. If she obtains a trademark by a massive miracle,  I would assume it would pertain to the use of the word moving forward.#crazyassshit #fiftyshadesoftwilight #itsaword #shedidnotcreateit #faleenahopkins #boycott

    This is all so crazy. If this happens then any word could be trademarked. She didn't come up with the word or was the first to use it.

    She’s a twunt plain and simple .... that would be like 15 authors using the same cardstock book cover and then a year or so later the one that posted it first coming back and saying that’s mine you have to change your covers .... NO DUMBASS it’s out there for anyone to use ... if you want an original pay a fuckin model.... if you want an original title then make up your own word not one that’s been around forever .....
