I love when my public disdain becomes evidence in a court case! Look ma, I made it! 😂
If you're not familiar with the trademarking disaster of #Cockygate and you're an author, designer, artist, or just love gossip, look it up. It affects all of us in the #indiepublishing world and while the name and circumstances are funny, the repercussions aren't.
Honestly, FH is classless and officially cancelled. #ByeFaleena

For anyone who's blissfully unaware of the shitstorm brewing in romance land, allow me to break it down:
1) An author has trademarked the word "cocky" in romance novels, which is a very common adjective that's used in titles and descriptions of characters. 
2) This same author has made legal threats to authors who have used this adjective in their titles, demanding they change their book titles (which is NOT as simple as it sounds. Aside from changing the interior text of the novel with any title references and upload the new file to Amazon, as well as  commission a redesigned cover, if authors have their book on Audible - All of that would need to be re-recorded as well, not to mention repromoting your novel with a new name AND getting new swag/promotional items with the new name....and unfortunately, it doesn't end here).
3) This entire idea is disastrous. If people think this will work to protect their brand, everyone will begin to trademark words that will make it virtually impossible for new books to be published. For example: someone has already tried (and thankfully failed) to trademark the word "forever". FOREVER. IN ROMANCE BOOKS. Let that sink in.
(Side note: the YA dystopian novel, All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis explores this issue!)
Using these genre-identifying words should not be proprietary.
4) Thankfully, Romance Writers of America (RWA) have already begun to deal with this very large thorn in everyone's side
.
While the quest to #freethecocky is underway, several badass romance authors united to form the best team since Avengers and published an anthology called "Cocktales: A Cocky Collective", with the objective to raise money in the fight against obstruction of creative expression.
They're so badass, ALL funds will be donated to either authors who have been affected or to the RWA
.
If you've read this far, you're AWESOME
But you would be AMAZING if you fill out the petition to cancel the absurd trademark on Cocky.
And you would be SPECTACULAR if you purchase this ebook while it's available between May26-August26
And you would have a little place in book heaven if you help share the word

In support of authors fighting ridiculous attempts to trademark ADJECTIVES a whole bunch of fab romance authors got together to release an anthology, available for a limited time (until late August, I believe). Proceeds from the book will go ti authors who are currently fighting the trademarking of the word "cocky" (I shit you not) by Faleena Hopkins and had their books that had the word in the title taken off amazon and other sites - often, btw, books published long before Hopkins' novels were published...
So. Support your romance authors and reasonable trademarks at the same time and go buy cocktales!

These past several I've been in a heated moment with authors against another unknown author who trademarked the word "cocky" and who then threatened other authors for using it in their titles. 
Well, now she's suing the IP attorney Kevin Kneupper for filing to cancel her trademark and her lawyer has filed a restraining order against the cancellation of the trademark. (Don't ask me how that works, because I don't have a clue). In addition, she's suing the author Tara Cresent and Jennifer Watson.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/u2pdvi3cw3ks55q/Complaint%20-%20Verified%20-%20Final%20-%20With%20Redactions.docx?dl=0

This lawsuit is nothing more than a SLAAP against Kevin for fighting for authors and readers because she's butthurt. What's funny about this is that she opened the lawsuit the moment the attention began focusing on other authors for also stupidly trademarking their titles or a word that doesn't belong to only them. 
I'm asking everyone to share this information. Do not be silent. Speak out against this lawsuit. Speak out against Faleena Hopkins. She can't be allowed to silence us any longer. 
#Authors and #readers never let Faleena Hopkins silence you. We are stronger together. Shout it out to the public that you will not stand for what she is doing to @kneupperwriter, Tara Cresent, and Jennifer Watson. Make videos. Post blogs. Do what you must! Speak out! #cockygate #byeFaleena #dontbeaFaleena #freethecocky #stopthecockblock

Seeing this helped alleviate some feelings I had last night about a similar predicament. Book titles are the hardest part of writing for me. It’s never my intention to use the same title as someone else, but sometimes it can’t be helped. There’s room for all of us, and it’s the content inside that’s the most important.  #Repost @author_lily_s_thomas with @get_repost

Saw this and had to repost since it does restore my faith in the romance community! We have so few hot words, like she said. Think of it this way: when someone looks up the title, “Wicked Desires” they’ll see the author they were looking for and yours. It’s called good advertising. No need to shut them down over it as long as they didn’t steal your book. I still don’t understand how she trademarked a common word... 😔

When Amazon sides with an author who hasn’t even won a ruling from the US Patent office and is claiming she has the copyright of the word COCKY. They are removing other indie authors books with COCKY in the title. This is what #cockygate and #byefaleena is all about. The systematic bullying from one indie author perpetuated on others to try and own the market on romance novels with this word in the title. This should concern all #writersofinstagram and #authorsofinstagram because if this #cockyroach of an author gets away with this it’ll  open the gates wide for others to try and pull the same crap and ruin #imdiepublishing completely! Every #amwriting #ameditors #writers and even #screenwriters should be standing up against this because it won’t stop with the greedy flea-nah others just as shady as her will crawl out of the muck to try and trade mark every single word we use in our titles! #cockygate #freecocky #youcanttrademarkaword #standupagainstFaleena #amwritingfantasy #amwritingromance #amwritingfiction #amwritingscifi #amwritingchildrensbooks

Every #amwriting  #ameditors  #writers  and even #screenwriters  should be standing up against this because it won’t stop with the greedy flea-nah others just as shady as her will crawl out of the muck to try and trade mark every single word we use in our titles! #cockygate  #freecocky  #youcanttrademarkaword  #standupagainstFaleena  #amwritingfantasy  #amwritingromance  #amwritingfiction  #amwritingscifi  #amwritingchildrensbooks

So I’m going on a #Cocky reading spree .... if it has the word #cocky in it I’m reading it well besides #ByeFaleena even if I just skim the books to get the main points so I can get their stars back up.... even if the books aren’t 5stars I’m giving them because her readers AIN’T playing fair in giving all other authors 1star ratings if they have #cocky in their titles .... I’m starting off with these two ménage books ..... and going from there #HerCOCKYDoctors #HerCOCKYFirefighters #DoubletheCOCK

You had the chance to be part of something great. To support and celebrate the success of your peers. Instead you tried to shut them down to make yourself seen, and now you want to cry victim to “mob mentality.” No ma’am. That “mob” is the community you turned against coming together to support the authors you’re trying to stifle. #byefaleena #youdidthistoyourself #sorrynotsorry #freethecocky #cockygate #stopthecockblock

Faleena Hopkins' reasoning is so lame. No one should be allowed to TM a word, that defeats the purpose of writing. Words should be shared not made to be shoved into a prison for ones inflated ego or lack of confidence in their own words.

No author should try to prevent other authors from using a specific word in their titles.  #booklover #byefaleena #cocky

A largely unknown romance writer has trademarked a common used word for romance book titles and is now trying to strong arm writers I adore and support with legal action. This is a dangerous precedent for authors all over if she is allowed to get away with it. #cockygate #isupportmyfellowauthors #byefaleena #youcantstopthecocky #dontbeafaleena #author #writer #romance #support #authorsupport #authorsofinstagram
