(copied from etsy talk all blog) WallCandy (not Wall Candy ARTS), a Canadian artist and cancer survivor, has been on Etsy since 2007. Soon however WallCandy might no longer exist as WallCandy on Etsy.
A new Esty seller, Wall Candy Arts, has apparently complained to Etsy. Wall Candy Arts filed a trademark in in the US, for something very specific: "decorative plastic wall coverings and wall boarders that adhere to a painted wall surface and are easily removed and repositioned."
Wall Candy ARTS! Doesn't even hand make her items. AND she also has her items in Walmarts and book stores US wide! The ORIGINAL Wall Candy of etsy is just a cancer survivor from Canada, trying to make a few bucks doing what she loves! This is so not fair and totally TACK of WALL CANDY 'ARTS' Etsy has given the original, Canadian WallCandy one week (ONE week) to notify customers and choose a new name.
