Passing on a notice for a friend
This is a travesty. Wolf Trap is suing a small non-profit arts center for using “The Barns” in its name. The arts center is …
wait for it…
an old dairy farm, and the buildings are two refurbished and re-purposed barns.
The property was donated, and community members have worked on the project, since before Wolf Trap received its original donation of land for an arts center. But apparently, Wolf Trap registered “the barns at” as a trademark.
There’s an informal poll at the end of the article.
