Illegal Uses: AbsoluteWrite.com - Using our registered trademark without express written permission and using it to smear our company in a long, long, investigation into the owners, co-conspirators, and ex-editor of one of Lisa’s publishing houses (different entity), an ex-author who stole the edits to books we paid to edit and expenses of over $20K, who is still publishing these stolen works on Amazon, other vendors, when she does not own these rights and we have contract to prove this. 

Todd Wallinger (smeared Lisa’s company online, used the Bow Wow Detectives® as the name of his play, claiming ownership to it and selling play tickets, and won and accepted an award in our Bow Wow Detectives® brand name. This is FAKE! It is NOT our series, Todd Wallinger has no relationship to the author and creator, he is not an author of Loucks Studios, Inc. and he is not Lisa Loucks-Christenson. He did tell Lisa she had no right using her name in a play, and he was protected and could use it if he wanted to.

There is an online app company, selling Detective Bow Wow game and code in the USA, against our federally registered trademark. They are designing, copying our fonts, trade dress, and making works for a theme park in India, against our name. They applied and failed to obtain a registered trademark for using our name with the words re-arranged. Author: Lisa Loucks-Christenson’s book, Story Preview Edition, Saliva Smirk’s Summer Camp for Dogs! Hit #1 on the Amazon International Bestseller list, among other countries, in India. There are copyright violations in the above named thieves, and people and companies involved in using our brand. Reports have been filed. Investigations are still open. Please keep reporting piracy and fakes.

11/29/2021: Lisa discovered a Big 5 publisher is using her book title, Don't Eat Bees! with a similar font to her handwriting on her own cover (no use of a commercial font), and like Lisa's inside illustration (the same as her book cover) with her copyright notice on the illustration, the other publisher is using the same words as Lisa's book, "don't eat bees", infringing on her art and they did not put them in quotation marks or cite that were the same three words on her books interior page and title of her book. Not only that, they arranged their (almost identical in font to match Lisa's style of how she arranged her words on her double award-winning book, and number 1 best-seller. The big 5 publisher was sent a cease and desist. 

These incidents affect Lisa as the creator, cause irreparable harm, which some attorney's have said is the reason they are doing this to her, trying to force her out of her federally trademarked brand, ruin her marketing and advertising or ride along with her money and collect off her office answering phone calls for a copy-cat title, one that is part of the trademarked series, Don't Eat Bees!™ established with verifiable proof in 2016.

The commercials Lisa paid to create, the money invested in voice overs, the talent acquired to record the full audio book, the commercials that are running (ongoing) in the UK, CA, and USA, Lisa's display windows, promo cards, art cards she's sold, giclee prints of the art and exhibits in two locations to promote her ongoing series is now being piggy-backed on by the Big 5 publisher, who has infringed on her trade dress, diluted her brand, infringed on her copyrights, and pushing her books and efforts down in the search engine rankings. Her websites are receiving their traffic, causing unwanted phone calls on how the caller can make Don't Eat Bees! a #1 best-seller, and since it already is, the calls must be for the Big 5 publisher. 


 Other Stolen Work:

 

Lisa Loucks-Christenson's giclee print (large size, and signed but she won't disclose the number on it or what signature(s) are on it, to spot the real print or masterfully reproduced copies of it, is floating around somewhere. It, along with her cameras, negatives, underclothing, personal items were all stolen out of another property, where the intruders left fish hooks in the ceiling fans.

 

If you see a print, of Daniels Charlie, anywhere, contact Lisa. There are only three prints in existence. Charlie Daniels was given one, one was going to the National Eagle Center but the theft interrupted those plans, and Lisa has one copy.
