    Hello fellow patriots.
    Although I welcome your involvement and am proud to have fellow patriots out there, The Name "United Militias of America as well as the acronym UMA" is taken, It is trademarked and copyrighted recorded in our privacy policy/terms of use and enforced by the courts of Sangamon County Illinois. I wish to work side by side with you in our effort to better America.If you have any questions you can visit the official UMA site at UnitedMilitia.org, or contact us through Facebook at UMA militias. Thank you for your cooperation, as I trust I need not push this issue farther.

    matters not, its trademarked and copyrighted, it doesn't matter if its a sack of 100% beef hot dogs. You cant start up a game about computer software and call it the official microsoft site, or something, because the name Microsoft is trademarked and copyrighted

    It does matter this is not official and we are not making any money off of this. It's a group from an online game. Like a group of friends from a video game working together and has nothing to do with you

    I dont wish to fight. I am as willing as anyone to work out a solution. Its not about money, we are not a business. Surely as intelligent individuals you can see why the name of your game would concern us. Id have to discuss it with my council members, but I'm thinking maybe some type of disclaimer about how your game is unoffiliated with the UMA or something to that affect....


    p.s. (and it does say "official" at the top)

    hmmm. I was going to make a joke about how that names not good enough for you anymore.... but i'm tired, I've been going strong for 20 hours now, and I need to rest. No worries for now on our end. Let us know what you want to do, Ill have 1 of my guys check out your game in the next couple days, who knows maybe we can help you promote it. IDK, we'll talk about it later.

    Ill have 1 of my members check it out. Our organization is walking a tight rope in our country. We have hardline stances on many pressing issues and we continually battle negative stereotype from the government, the media, and uneducated members of the American public. Just this year we have made tremendous strides in our public approval rating. It has truly been a battle, from all definitions. So naturally we get very nervous when someone comes along using our exact legal name (which was hard to get in the first place), we worry about the potential for negative fallout should someone correlate your site with ours. We have gone through brutal legal battles over other organizations using this name (although they were actual militia units, some of whom were criminal organizations), we are not looking for another trademark/copyright war, thats for sure. We have gone to great lengths to accomplish what we have, and Im not saying that you would "defame" us, but we obviously cant leave that potential to "a group of friends on an online game" thank you for your understanding

    Kinda funny because we are about 100 members strong and any promotion is good promotion right? If he was truly battling for public opinion then it would have been better to endorse us.
