One question in my mind Michele would be, who owns it once it is registered? What person or entity?
A person can own a trademark, so Hugh, I guess.

And that's a big question. If it's Hugh, he/we MUST hire a lawyer since he's outside the US. That was probably the big expense in the past as well.

If it's simply LV, then - who? We have no board or other officers. We admins aren't officers/board in any legal sense.

Congrats on 400 covers!! That is amazing :clap:

Fingers crossed this will become a tutorial in a future Zoom!
Thanks! Others have done far more, but I'm proud of my own milestone. My first cover was in 2013, only did a few over the next few years, picking up as I become more proficient with Photoshop and more confident that I can please the project coordinators.

No hats? Bah humbug.

Hats are not 'required'; encouraged but not required. I am relaxing the rules for the poor hatless people out there. They won't get bonus points of course.

I can see that one day soon I'm going to have to brave the local thrift store to see if I can find something suitably silly! All I have are boring ball caps.

My concern is that you do not have a Yankees cap.

That’s because if I had had one I would have set it on fire....

Such a mensch!

I can tolerate Red Sox fans better than Patriots fans, at least....

Wow! Thankfully, not great, although the reptiles have been inching northward in Deep South GA and the coastal areas.
