"Orgonite" and "orgone generator" have been in generic use ever since I first heard of these devices ten years ago. Welz has no case. He might have if he'd enforced the trademark since the beginning, but that horse left the barn long ago.
Orgonite is a common use term that does not correlate to any specific patentable configuration that can be pinned down or isolated from the broader spectrum of artistic works that combine various metals with organic resins. Karl Welz is reaching for royalties where none are due. I support this appeal to the Patent Office for reclassification of Orgonite as a generic term available for public use.
I'm signing this because I too make a product that is based off of orgonite technology and was trying to site the inventors and the origin of this technology to only be rudely contacted by the attorney of karl welz and belittled by him as to why I wasnt aware of this trademark and that orgonite is a inferior product anyways. I believe this term is broad and should be able to be used by the public.
This trademark is ridiculous. Orgonite and Orgone Generator are the two most common words describing this material. How else are we supposed to talk about our work? What is next? Trademarking the word "plastic ?" or "earth" ? This trademark is totally insane. Please revoke this trademark!
