Cease and Desist?
I found this on my site-tracker tonight:
For those of you who have never read the “Welcome” link in the sidebar, “Flipism” made its first appearance in a Donald Duck comic in the mid 1950s. The villain of the story, Professor Batty, was a pitchman who sold Donald a self-help book titled Flipism Is The Key. Donald took its advice literally, basing all of his decisions on flipping a coin. Needless to say, disaster ensued. When I started this humble effort, Professor Batty was just one of a number of fictional characters (thankfully, this early version of the blog has been long deleted.) When I started writing regularly I took up the Professor’s persona—that of a fast-talking con-man—but applied it to broader uses. I had actually used the Flippist name for a record business in the 70s and 80s; there is even an IRS tax number under that name.
So if you are from Disney legal, monitoring this blog, give me a break, please.
I’ve got a case for prior use and at least I spelled it right.
