President, EDGE&TA Inc., 3510 Brooklake Rd. N.E., Brooks, Oregon 97303
It has been brought to the attention of the National Officers of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association, Inc., that there are some clubs that are using the title 'Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association,' the abbreviation EDGE&TA, and the logo of same. We wish to inform these clubs that the use of our title and logo is strictly prohibited unless they are an affiliated branch. This name and logo were federally registered in 1957 at the time of incorporation.
As to not getting involved in any costly litigation and possible embarrassment, we would recommend that these clubs change their names and logos, or become a branch of the EDGE&TA.
We have contacted our attorney and are ready to take any form of legal action necessary to correct this matter.
If any of these involved clubs have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
