Barry Schwartz of Search Engine Roundtable posted today it's been 10 years since Ms. Rhea won her challenge.
Ten Years Ago, One Woman Stopped SEO From Being TrademarkedTen years ago, Rhea Drysdale, who I interviewed here, defended the SEO industry by stopping an individual from trademarking "SEO." I have stories on this from ten years ago on Search Engine Land named "Meet The 25-Year-Old Who Saved “SEO” From Being Trademarked" and here named "Why The SEO Industry Is Special."
If you weren't around back then Barry has some links in the above referenced article you could read or if you were in the SEO industry back in 2008-10 you might like to read the posts also.
Do you remember all this going on if you were in the SEO industry back then?
