Congrats to Argentium Silver Co and their Artentium Sterling, but
trying to control the use of languague is a losing battle!!
I don’t think it’s so much a matter of them trying to control the
language as it is a matter of them trying to protect their copyright.
It’s my understanding that if they can’t prove in court that they’ve
tried to defend their copyright then they stand to lose it. I can see
no reason why they should suffer that indignity.
I’ve heard from the Argentium Sterling people about this too and as a
result I quite happily did a sweep through my blog and changed all
the references to “Argentium Silver”. Since it’s a great product and
they’ve been exceptionally helpful to anyone who asks I for one happy
to do my part to help them out.
I agree that it’s easy to get one’s back up over this but in the end
it’s not a huge request they’re making and they’ve got good reasons
for doing so, IMHO.
