Jazz Posters Sold World Wide

My Art REMOVED





 The Foundation claims to have trademark "Jazz Fest", which is a common phrase used for festivals all over the world. I seriously doubt it would hold up in Court. I am not rich enough to file suit. The Foundation has bullied printers, artists, and common folk with notice they will sue for use. Thus ZAZZLE  removed any design with the phrase and some with just the words, Jazz and Fest separately. Thus hundreds of my long term designs are no longer for sale there and at other places. I have revised some designs. And will revise more. I think the Foundation is not considering New Orleans heritage with those actions. But the common folk cannot fight back those overly rich folks.

 The foundation stopped my printers from selling my Jazz Fest related art. All of my past art was removed from sale. They sent a letter saying they would sue the printers. None of the printers want the grief or expense even though we all agreed the art was protected as it was my original art works. However a lawyer sent me a letter also saying the foundation would sue. They would lose in court but the expense was too great so the printers stopped. This is what the heritage of New Orleans now represents. Stopping local artists from producing art that the foundation wants the big bucks from. That is what it is all about. I sold maybe 3 or 4 prints of my art over the last 15 years making about $25, so fighting the foundation over that is not cost effective. But the public needs to know what the foundation does to stop art.
