The person that goes by the name of "adamx20" on every forum to which he visits, whose true name is Tyler Starke, has STOLEN Knowledge Arcana from the staff of the magazine by filing their trademark under his name at the US patent and trademark office. He said it himself:

A TM Thief in Action

He has stolen the trademark over a grudge and he himself is the one who did not get written permission from certain artists to use their material, as he himself was the Art Director entrusted with the task. Also, the issue in question has not gone to print, so he is defaming the good reputations of everyone on staff, including Penny williams (aka, Penny Petticord). He has accused the entire staff of Knowledge Arcana of stealing artists' works. This is a blatant Lie.

The lesson is to protect all your trademarks by filing them with the US patent and trademark office. Don't let anyone do this to you. Protect your rights. Also, keep hard copies of all your work, and if possible, file your work with the copyright office.

If Tyler finds out that I have helped with other works on this site, he may attempt to file other trademarks associated with other things I'm involved with.
