Welcome everyone to our new website and new home. This has been a
really crazy couple of weeks. Believe me, this was not an expected
thing. To fill all of you in a little bit- We were contacted by a
trademark attorney about infringing upon Roots Canada's trade name.
This was immediately taken into action and looked at. After meeting
with a number of attorneys, we can up with what was going to be our
final decision. Our name, "Roots." was in fact registered with the
United States Patent and Trademark Office. Being that Roots Canada's
trade name "Roots" was very similar to ours, the only way to find our
who the government would give the rights to was to take it to federal
court. Believe me, this was not something we felt like doing. Although
there was a very good chance that we would be ok, there was no
guarantee. Knowing that this process would take time, and a lot of
money, we decided to make mends and move on to something bigger and
Brushwood will pick up almost exactly where Roots. Lifestyles left off.
We are still working on new product lines. We almost feel that this is
a blessing in disguise. Although it's a tremendous amount of work, we
have a fresh slate to start with. Everyone that followed us at Roots.

enough for giving us your support.
