NAAS Imposters; April 2012 Report; Endorsement by American Association for the Advancement of Science

National Academy of American Scholars has been recognized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) as evidenced by their use of the NAAS brand throughout their website. In selective approved cases, use of the NAAS brand constitutes endorsement of NAAS products and services. The NAAS brand is the defacto standard for integrity, reliability, and academic scholarship; this fact is recognized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Any domain name that uses the NAAS label without specific authorization of and approval from the trademark registrant of record or National Academy of American Scholars is in fact illegal and a direct violation of U.S. Trademark laws. To date, we have discovered these domain names as illegal:

We will drive down the value of any and ALL illegal domain names that infringe upon the NAAS label, and will file public and private legal (civil and criminal) complaints against persons that aid or abet trademark infringement.

If your company is a domain-name reseller, or web hosting company and you are assisting, aiding, or abetting, or any way performing any act(s) that may be construed as promoting the marketing, sale, or transfer of such domain name(s) then your company will be rated an 'F' and publicly labeled as engaging in criminal conduct since the U.S. Trademark Act does in fact prohibit trademark infringement.

If you are an attorney looking to churn fees by filing trademark applications that have little possibility of approval or that you know or reasonably expect will be disputed then please understand that Pre-Emptive Complaints will be lodged in your judicial district casting your reputation and integrity into question, and appropriate complaints will be filed against the State Bar organizations you are a member of. Your career as an attorney, and all cases that you have appeared in will be scrutinzed.

If your company desires to license the NAAS brand in exchange for appropriate monetary compensation or cross-promotion then we welcome your inquiry.
