The #cockygate trademark drama – started by an author obtaining a trademark to the word “cocky” and threatening authors with legal action – has taken an even more serious turn over the past few days. The author in question, Faleena Hopkins, has now filed legal proceedings against some of the authors and others caught up in the drama she created.
We might not be able to do much to help, but we can buy the authors’ books to show some support (the authors being attacked, not Hopkins!).
This is appalling from start to finish. Honestly, what is going through Ms Hopkins’ mind?
