Trademark Violation -- Cease and Desist

Mr. Daniel D. Stuhlman writes a fascinating article -- there is only a couple problems.  Ok more than a few problems. Lots of problems.

He is not a lawyer and doesn't know what he is talking about.  He is wrong and I believe a liar.  I never spoke or email him.  Never heard of him.

He writes: 
  • I received one of those 'nasty' letters on Oct. 22, 2003 via e-mail demanding me to stop violating a trademark
  • In June 2002 the Association of Jewish Libraries held its annual convention in Denver. They got permission to use a catchy name playing on the moniker "mile high" associated with the city.
I never sent him a letter of any kind.  When I found an article makes use of by Business and Trade Mark - I called Denver Jewish Library here in Denver.  They said write the person that wrote the article and remove Mile Chai.  per our agreement.

Here is what he left out - I had an agreement with  Association of Jewish Libraries that after the convention they would no longer use my trade mark and business name.  They agreed.  Simple enough.

What Daniel D. Stuhlman doesn't understand is agreements.  Stuhlman is not a lawyer.

Before you listen to people like Daniel D. Stuhlman - talk to someone that knows something before you get yourself in trouble.

Shaul Magid

“Jewish Renewal in Contemporary America: Negotiating the Boundaries of Legitimacy”

Jewish Renewal has moved into its second generation. Join Professor Magid as he examines the question of “legitimacy” more generally through the lens of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi’s recent Hebrew writings.

Shaul Magid is the Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein Chair of Jewish Studies at Indiana University. Professor Magid’s work focuses on Kabbalah, Hasidism and medieval and modern Jewish philosophy. He is the author of Hasidism on the Margin: Reconciliations, Antinomianism and Messianism in Izbica and Radzin Hasidism. Editor of God’s Voice from the Void: Old and New Essays on Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav and co-editor of Beginning Again: Toward a Hermeneutic of Jewish Text.

Join Professor Magid for a unique and intimate learning opportunity as he leads series of Rimon: Master Classes on

“Lurianic Kabbalah on Scripture”

Much of the focus on Kabbalah in the academy has dealt with Kabbalah’s metaphysical world-view, its liturgical and devotional applications, and its historical setting. Less work has been done on the hermeneutical strategies used by Kabbalists to re-write Scripture in their own image and how these interpretive schemes may have been responding to local and global events in the Jewish world. This series of classes focuses on one kabbalistic fraternity, that of Rabbi Isaac Luria in 16th-century Safed, and explores the way they used Scripture as a lens to understand the major theological and cultural events in their time.

  • Wednesday, April 25, 2007 from 4-7 P.M. and
  • Thursday, April 26, 2007 from 4-7 P.M.
  • University of Denver, Multi-Purpose Room 3430
