I have been informed that AC Lockyer has exclusive rights to the word “SoftWash”. The New Orleans PW Class will therefore teach, as part of the course, “soft washing” using pressure washers, 12v pumps, and air-powered pumps not “SoftWashing” which is exclusve to AC.
This is ridiculous. This is just like ABC trademarking “waterfed”. I’m going to start trademarking terms like “lawnmower” and “automatic” and go around bullying anyone else who uses them. Btw, a Google search for “softwash” pulled 637,000 results. I hope he doesn’t have much on his plate.
If AC really is serious about this, he better hire someone to go thru and call everyone who is using this terminology. Just google Soft wash pressure washing and you’ll find pages. I doubt but a small portion of these bought his pricey set-up.
I haven’t bought my equipment yet, but this will probably detour me from buying anything he has to sell.
As was already stated I too immediately thought of CW from CBA and his attempt to copy write a common industry term. I’ve heard the term softwash used far longer than I even knew AC existed. This is strange.
Don’t worry. I got him for you, Llarry.
We were having a great drift catching speckled trout one after the other until this nasty, botton-feeding piece of trash showed up and ruined everything for about half an hour.
