Copyright Claims by Corinne Roberts Rejected
Corrinne Roberts, a representative and employee of Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc., a/k/a/ The Northwest Accreditation Commission, filed a confidential complaint alleging that the logo of the Northwest Accreditation Commission, a/k/a/ Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc., was some how either protected by federal laws, or suitable for copyright protection.
In or about February of 2010, a criminal fraud complaint was lodged against David Steadman, and Norene Rice, of Northwest Associaton of Accredited Schools, Inc., with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, and other anonymous employees of this organization. The fraud complaint arose as a direct result of false, untrue, and deceitful statements used by David Steadman and his employees in their ultimately failed attempt to obtain legal rights to use the NAAS logo in commerice. Ultimately, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office with the allegations and denied the trademark application of Northwest Associaton of Accredited Schools, Inc.
Despite these obvious and egregious acts of fraud/accreditation schemes, and rulings by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, the State of Idaho has endorsed, promoted, and even duplicated the same fraudulent business model of Northwest Associaton of Accredited Schools, Inc.. Even the flagship unversity of the state, Boise State University, was as an early participant in this series of NAAS Accreditation schemes, and trademark infringement practices until it decided to obey a CEASE-AND-DESIST letter.
Consumers need to understand that the current logo, posted above, was adopted by Northwest Associaton of Accredited Schools, Inc. only after a scheme to hijack the NAAS logo failed. The current proposed logo is supposed to take the place of the discredited logo formerly associated with The Northwest Accreditation Commission, a/k/a/ Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc.
There is no trademark registration for the acronym NWAC, and neither is the logo protected in the U.S.A. There is a possibility, however, the Soviet Russia, or China, or other military enemies of the U.S.A. are willing to use this label to entice or lure their agents into the U.S.A. under the guise of accreditation.
In summary, NAAS DEIA Agents filed responsive legal papers and defeated the latest bogus claims of this irresponsible organization. The current logo associated with Northwest Accreditation Commission is essentially worthless, and there is no record on file with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office that it merits protection.
