I wonder where BioMaster went, I though he decided to stop posting in this thread, but maybe it appears he was behind the scenes in contact with Advanced Nutrients legal department?
Advanced Nutrients(AN) today filed a claim for C&D and threaten legal action against Greenleaf Nutrients(GN). The basis of their claim is that GN is "passing off their products" as AN, however this is not true as can be clearly seen on the main homepage of GN website.
On the third paragraph down on the homepage, it clearly states all products are our own products, and mention of any other brands or names is simply for comparative purposes. The FCC allows comparative advertising on the basis that the customer can compare product, however "passing off" or fooling the customer into thinking they are buying a different product is prohibited.
It is clear all GN has done is used comparative advertising, as none of their products have the same name, they simply state on some pages "this product is similar to another product ______." Thus, there is no intent of confusion or anyway someone could think they are actually buying an AN product. Further, it is also stated that our products ship as a dry powder product, and AN's products sell as liquid formulas typically in 1 Liter liquid containers or larger.
Regardless of this, AN is falsely claiming that GN is trying to counterfeit products and pass off fake products, and thus attempting to shut down GN website and will use legal action. This is simply an act of bullying by a multimillion dollar company against a very small company to scare them into shutting down their site and forcing their domain host to delete their website and remove their account.
So, I will let ya folks know how it turns out, but we definitely don't plan to let ourselves by bullied around just caus were small =p
