Dear Randy, James, et al, What is going on with copyright laws in
this country is insane. I understand that Mr. "highly effective"
Stephen Covey claims copyright on “First Things First,” one of the
most popular 12 Step slogans. And now I know why the old symbol isn’t
on the AA World Service web site! Does someone know who now holds
copyright on the AA “logo”?
But hold on…the upward pointing triangle “contained” by the circle
is an ancient symbol for the “masculine” contained by the "feminine,"
i.e. the God contained within and an aspect of the Great Goddess.
Is there a lawyer out there who handles class action suits on these
things? If everyone in AA joined with everyone “in” Neo-Paganism (and
there’s a lot of overlap, never mind the overlap with Orchid–as some
of you have let me know), couldn’t we at least try to get the courts
to return what is an ancient symbol to the public domain?
