Johntext Trademark

I take a coke and a pommes in a pub and go through the external storage of my notebook. Just noticed the trademark document of . It is a trademark in 27 european countries.

There is the possibiltiy to have a text trademark or a picture trademark. Johntext is both. Why?

Well I wanted to protect the name “Johntext” and the “literature with purpose to help”. The lawyers said: “No that is general that is not possible.”

Well. You know it is difficult. You start reading about authors from Russia. First articles and summaries about them. Then you have to read some of their books at least. Then you have to contact them. You get a “Yes” or you get a “No” and life goes on. You contact the next author.

This time it is different. I have never been to Russia. Sure one day I will make a journey to Russia with books of Tolstoi and Dostojewski in my suitcase.

I am quite sure I decided to choose a very good author for Johntext Russia. She writes on the website “From Russia With Love” in English.

I do not know her name. Hopefully she will agree to join the Johntext Team. If not there will be no voice of Russia in Johntext!

News From Johntext Russia!

Hello again!

I added a link to  a photo blog website from Russia. It is called “Heart of Moscow” . It is an interesting website with pictures, photos and drawings about the capital of Russia and its inhabitants.

Thanks a lot to the author “inamazing”  from who gave the hint. She runs the website From Russia with love which is outstanding as concerns content and design!

Have a nice day!
