Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., National Office
March 30, 2011
Unfortunately a lot of people are buying into the press being generated by SGK in regards to their trademarking. As someone who is a part of an organization that has been affected by their "cease and desist" letters for having the words "a cure" in their slogan, I can attest that SGK is in fact man handling smaller organizations and costing them quite a bit of money. While they may not have gone to court over this - because the smaller organizations cannot afford the legal fees and would rather put their money to use in finding a cure - they have threatened these other organizations.
I know many breast cancer survivors who are also against SGK and their actions.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the fact that another group had to completely rebrand their organization to avoid potential lawsuits by SGK for trying to find a cure for their own disease!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make them smaller and remind them of what the mission of this foundation initially was set up for.
