    Default music vs. national socialism!!!!

    okay guys...this has nothin to do with djing itself, but this is really serious.

    i need to explain: a guy in germany called Timo Schubert ( one of those f***ing national socialist ) went to the our national patent office here in germany and had the great idea to claim the word " Hardcore" some of u know, hardcore itself isn´t just a well known word from the pornindustry...no...it´s a worldwide political/music movement that has nothing to do with nationallism/sexism/chauvinism...and so on. what ever. so this guys plan is to sue everyone here in germany that prints the word hardcore on banners/shirts/posters. u might get a little idea what this would mean for all of us who love/life hardcore. who are against nationalsocialism/sexism/chauvinism. don´t wanna think about what will happen if this ass***le gets the rights. so this is the plan: a lot of people here in germany are at the barricades and try their best, inform people, demonstrate agianst this shit and writing emails to the dpma (german patent office).

    i want to ask and please everyone of u to send the precast email to the dpma (doesn´t matter if ur not from germany or europe or earth). it would help so much...cause the dpma will notice the reaction.

    email address dpma : info@dpma.de

    precasted mail :





    <Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

    die unter dem Aktenzeichen 302008045099.1 von Herrn Timo Schubert aus 37120 Bovenden angemeldete Wortmarke „Hardcore“ dürfte einem Eintragungshindernis unterliegen, worauf ich Sie hinweisen möchte.




    „Hardcore“ ist ein beschreibender Begriff für eine Jugend- und Musikkultur (siehe Wikipedia). Ein Musikstil der seit Jahrzehnten ganz klar gegen Rassismus und rechte Ideologien Stellung bezieht. Ich bin erschrocken, dass ein Rechtsextremist wie Timo Schubert jetzt versucht dieses Wort zu vereinnahmen. Es ist davon auszugehen, dass Timo Schubert die Eintragung vor allem dazu nutzen wird nicht-rechte Hardcore-Fans zu verklagen.




    Ich hoffe sehr, dass Sie Ihre Entscheidung über die Eintragung der Marke nochmals überdenken.




    Für eine baldige Antwort Ihrerseits wäre ich Ihnen dankbar.




    Mit freundlichen Grüßen

    UR NAME>


    (translation: Dear Sir or Madam. Under the act sign 302,008,045,099.1 of Mr. Timo Schubert from 37120 Bovenden announced word brand "Hardcore" might be defeated by a registration obstacle what I would like to point out you to. "Hardcore" is a describing concept for a youth culture and music culture (see Wikipedia). A music style since decades quite clearly against racism and right ideologies position covers. I have got a fright, that to take in this word a right-wing extremist like Timo Schubert now tried. It is to be assumed from the fact that Timo Schubert will use the registration above all for it non-right hardcore fans to sue. I hope very much that you think over your decision on the registration of the brand again. I would be grateful for a quick answer for your part to you. Yours sincerely)





    it would be so fuckin if u could help us kids here in germany! thanks!!!!

    hope i didn´t bored and nerved u....

    Isn't it impossible to patent common words, unless it's part of your brand and you are WELL reknown for it.. like Apple with the "i"?

    meh, government is stupid, they'll accept that he submits the form, but in front of the committee, it'll get rejected...

    basically, they want the 200$+ he paid for the form
