This notice refers to the E2M2C™ trademark, the ownership, placement & servicing of E2M2C™ devices, and the procedures clients are expected to follow in the event the client desires to cease participating in the E2M2C™ program and/or a change of ownership — of the physical site where an active E2M2C™ program exists — takes place. © Bugsinthenews Vol. 23:10(02): Created on 1 October 2022, last revised on 17 October 2022.
Important Notice about the E2M2C™ trademark
The term E2M2C™ is the stylized acronym used for a proprietary program developed and operated by EntomoBiotics Inc. Its full title is “Enhanced Ecosystem Monitoring, Management, and Control.” E2M2C™ refers to and identifies each of the unique devices, methods, and protocols that are associated with that program, and is a trademark that is wholly owned by EntomoBiotics Inc.
Ownership, Placement & Servicing of E2M2C™ Devices
The E2M2C™ devices that are placed and regularly serviced at client sites are never sold, but remain the property of EntomoBiotics Inc. at all times. The property label affixed to every E2M2C™ program device gives legal notice to this effect, as do the written statements attached to our invoices and service records. E2M2C™ devices are placed at client sites at the beginning of that site’s participation in the E2M2C™ program. Those devices are then serviced by exchanging them — at designated intervals — with freshly sanitized, revised, and re-provisioned units in a repetitive service cycle that is maintained for as long as the program remains in force at that site. Exchanged devices are returned to our laboratory to be assayed, sanitized, equipped with the latest revisions, and re-provisioned with expendable components.
Once a site’s participation in the E2M2C™ program ceases, all of the E2M2C™ devices positioned there will be collected by EntomoBiotics Inc. personnel and returned to our laboratory. If site ownership changes while we have E2M2C™ devices in place, it is incumbent on the property owner to notify EntomoBiotics Inc. immediately so that arrangements can be made to continuing or terminate the program. In the event the new owner does not desire to participate, EntomoBiotics Inc. personnel will take steps to collect the E2M2C™ devices within a reasonable time frame before or immediately following the change in site ownership.
Those currently participating in the E2M2C™ program who have questions about their particular site, as well as those who are not yet involved with the E2M2C™ project but would like to consider getting on board, should call or text me for more information. Current participants already have the number… But, for those who don’t, it’s five-one-two 426-9883.
