Re: GSBN:(OT)David vs Goliath: CertainTeed trademark?

Bill and Jeanine,

I filled out the survey on the greenbuilder site and added the comment 
that aside from the patently (pun intended) ridiculous position taken by 
CertainTeed, this is not a product for sale, but a title of a section of 
a website. And of course it is just common english usage in that regard 
as well. They have no right to keep you from writing ordinary english 
descriptions of categories of information on your website - not even 
saying "building solutions" by itself as a page heading or section title 
of your website.
