Vermont's EAT MORE KALE is a small, eco-friendly t-shirt business with a mission to promote sustainable food messages. The company's sole proprietor, Bo Muller-Moore, has used the EAT MORE KALE logo in his t-shirt designs for more than 10 years, and he recently applied for a federal trademark on his business name. A federal trademark would block other artists from copying his design (which has happened in the past) and protect the livelihood he's worked so hard to build.

But if Chick-fil-A, a multi-million dollar fast food company, has its way, Muller-Moore won't be able to protect his business. The Corporate Goliath has threatened to block EAT MORE KALE's trademark attempt and shut the business down. Chick-fil-A uses the slogan "Eat Mor Chikin,"and it alleges that EAT MORE KALE confuses CHICK-FIL-A customers and dilutes its multi-million dollar industry.

This isn't the first time that Chick-fil-A has bullied this small business. Back in 2006, the fried chicken giant's lawyers sent Muller-Moore a cease-and-desist letter, ordering him to stop using the EAT MORE KALE logo and send Chick-fil-A all of his t-shirts. After Muller-Moore obtained legal counsel of his own, Chick-fil-A backed down.

This is a clear case of corporate bullying, and we won't tolerate it! Muller-Moore is a small business owner that supports sustainable agriculture--he is no threat to a multi-million dollar fast food company, and he has a right to pursue his livelihood.

Sign this petition demanding that Chick-fil-A stop blocking EAT MORE KALE's federal trademark. It's time we take a stand against corporate bullying. SIGN THE PETITION TO FIGHT CHICK-FIL-A: http://www.change.org/petitions/chick-fil-a-s...
