Welcome to the Humane Republic of Lazarus!

鳳凰视自我民视,鳳凰听自我民听。
民為貴,社稷次之,君為輕。

The Phoenix sees according as the people see; the Phoenix hears according as the people hear. Therefore the people are the most important element in a nation; the spirits of the land and the grain are the next; the sovereign is the lightest.

Filthy legal immigrant, stealing our jobs.

What ever happened to Whalistan?

First off, many purrs™ to Loftegen for the original proposal and to Altmoras for making this transparent:

The Grand Imperium of Altmoras wrote:For addition to the Civil Code:

Article 4: Distinctive marks, images, and phrases.

Nations may not appropriate for their own use distinctive marks, images, or phrases associated with another nation without that nation's permission.

Permission for the use of distinctive marks, images, and phrases is at will, that is, it may be granted and/or withdrawn at any time for any reason.

Distinctive marks, images, and phrases include but are not limited to: player created emoticons, player created flags, and phrases originated by or closely associated with a particular player.

Players may register their distinctive marks, images, and phrases with the Minister Steward, who shall approve or reject all requests, and who shall maintain a list of approved distinctive marks, images, and phrases, and the nations associated with them. The Minister Steward must give reason for rejecting all requests, and may reject requests if the mark, image, or phrase is considered generic through common use.

Players may place their registered distinctive marks, images, and phrases in the public domain for any and all to use. Public domain status is irreversible.

Disputes shall be settled by the Grand Court.

Protection of distinctive marks, images, and phrases shall last for the creator nation's life plus a duration of three months after they cease to exist. After which their registered distinctive marks, images, and phrases shall pass into the public domain.

This filthy non-citizen would suggest a re-ordering of the present elements:

The Cat also thinks one should include language, or otherwise consider discussion, concerning Fair Use to protect discussion about marks, use in academic works, and parody. One might also want to consider the concept of laches, that is, a less-than-timely failure to protect one's marks, and how such marks could then naturally fall into the public domain.

She considers similarity of marks and the priority of first use to be within the purview of both the Minister Steward and the Grand Court, and does not wish to see explicit language addressing those matters.

Many purrs™!!

Are the trademarks a thing around these parts?

Unfortunately, yes. Archaic laws were recently introduced concerning TMs and (R)s.

Is there a list of trademarks so I can use them all in one post? :P

The INWU Ambassador of Adrastea wrote:Are the trademarks a thing around these parts?

It should have been in the original predecessor to your region, the International Western Union!!

The mark "International <Direction> Union" should have been recognized as under the common ownership of all members of the International Western Union in the aggregate, and placed in trust with the government of that region. Instead, a select few conspired to create the sister regions without informing said government, or the membership as a whole.

The Cat™ sued, and lost. So there you are...
