    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    First, there's no such thing as a trademark in the public domain. The definition of public domain is something that isn't covered by trademark, copyright, or any other legal protection. Second, if they did allow free use of their trademark they'd lose it. And third, the way they lied about The...

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    And as everyone expected, Rearz abandoned the application

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    That argument still falls apart because A: If ABDL being trademarked means they can get around advertising restrictions, that still only benefits Rearz because only they can use the term, and therefore only they get advertising, creating an unfair advantage over their competitors, and B: Even if...

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    Rearz are way more expensive in the US. A case of 36 Safaris costs $108 USD, a case of 40 LittlePawz costs $85. Plus mediums and larges for Safaris (from CooshieTooshiez at least) cost extra.

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    I linked their official statement, directly from their company website, in the OP.

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    Ah yeah. For sure. I'm no copyright lawyer, but IIRC, if you don't protect your copyright you end up losing it, so even if they were going to allow free use of it they'd probably end up losing it and filed for no reason anyways. Its more likely that they're attempting to squeeze licensing fees...

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    A quick Google search says 6 months to a year. Since the application was filed in October, earliest we'd hear a final result by now would probably be March or April (but again, quick Google search). Like I said though, its highly unlikely they get it. Even if they were in a position to acquire...

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    Er, not buying that they're attempting to trademark ABDL? Because I just posted the trademark filing and the official statement by the company that that's exactly what they're doing. Doubt it'll happen, but the intent is still there.

    Rearz attempting to trademark the term "ABDL"

    So just found out about this today on /r/ABDL (the claim was filed back in October). Haven't seen it posted here yet (also not sure if this is the right section, but it directly relates to a major supplier), so thought I might as well. Rearz has filed for copyright claims to "ABDL" in the US...

    Can i get abu diapers in a store?

    I've heard stories of certain medical supply stores that started selling ABDL diapers because they're generally better than medical brands, but they're few and far between with no guarantee to their validity. ABU has a couple warehouses in the US (in Everett, Washington and Baltimore, Maryland)...

    The Internet Knows

    I use an adblocker, but I did get that quite a bit. Even on sites that still give me ads (like Facebook), I usually don't see diaper ads, but one pops up every now and then. With a couple exceptions: somehow got around my adblocker in the past, but the advertisements were always for...

    Crinkliest Diaper and Reccomendations

    In my admittedly somewhat limited experience, I find Bambino Bellisimos to be the loudest.

    After ordering online does anyone else do this

    Not usually. But I did order a pack of Rearz Princesses that are supposed to arrive today, so I keep checking the order tracking to see if they've arrived yet (I live on the third floor, so I don't like constantly running down to look for it)

    USA Source of Rearz other than Bambino: Is there one...?

    Did they stop offering samples? I know its not the most economical option, but since I don't get to wear often, its nice to just buy a couple diapers at a time and experiment with different ones.

    How to stop diaper tabs from ripping plastic?

    TIL almost nothing made by ABU, Rearz, Bambino, etc. are considered "premium."

    How to stop diaper tabs from ripping plastic?

    I don't think there's much else you can do then, tbh. Tapes need to be strong enough to stick, plastic needs to be thin enough to not be stiff and uncomfortable. Not a good combination for a margin of error. Only other advice would be to keep practicing until you can get a perfect fit everytime...

    How to stop diaper tabs from ripping plastic?

    Most premium diapers have a laminated plastic landing zone for the tapes for exactly this reason. You might be able to proxy this by using clear scotch tape over the front of the diaper where the tapes are fastened.
