Cancel Trademarks on Urban Homestead and Urban Homesteading

This petition had 2,440 supporters

This is a petition to the Derveas Institute to cancel the Trademarks on "Urban Homestead" and "Urban Homesteading" in good faith from the urban homestead community. Noting that Urban Homesteading was addressed in the 1976 Article on the Integral House and an article in 1980 by Mother Earth News, the group has laid false claims on the rights to the term and their actions are noted as hostile to the spirit of the community. 

Boycotts on their digital properties and physical goods will commence until the trademarks are legally cancelled by the Corporation. 

P.S. Feel free to copy the letter below and email it to if you wish to bypass the log in.

P.S.S. Please go and support the comapnies that were harmed in this fiasco. Visit the Take Back Urban Homesteading page on FB for details.
