Thanks for taking the time to write this up. Robyn, Mo, and I are going
to discuss this issue in depth with Pam next week and we hope to be able
to rework this aspect of the proposed TM guidelines to address many of
the concerns raised.
Thinking a little more about the implications and point of the changes
rather than the actual changes themselves I can offer a best effort at
the following if that will help.
As I recall from memory today the ambassadors in NA began producing a
variety of merchandise beginning in 2008 and continuing to the present
time. There probably were earlier occurrences of ambassador produced
merchandise (in particular I recall earlier t-shirts being produced)
but I don't know what process was used or how that was done prior to
FAmNA coming into existence.
In most cases I am pretty sure we could recover a lot of this
information for everything that has been produced since 2008 that was
funded through FAmNA or CommArch for FAmNA. We should have receipts
that will show when they were produced and what company produced them
and the date of first production. In at least a couple of cases I am
quite sure I remember the specific event they were first distributed
at as well. In most cases those involved in producing the items are
still involved in the project and with their help we might be able to
document a lot of this information for merchandise used during the
2008-present time period. I still have have pristine physical examples
of many small items if those are useful in some way as well.
If this is something you would like us to attempt to do please let us
know as the sooner we try the more likely we are to succeed.
