In 1995, Brad Morehouse purchased AlwaysLowPrices.com and Walmart trade marked the slogan Always Low Prices in 2003. According to law, Walmart has no jurisdiction over the .com but Walmart tried to sue Brad Morehouse in 2004 threatening Mr. Morehouse with certified letters and phone calls. Mr. Morehouse called out Walmart on their deception and bully tactics to the point where Walmart dropped the case. Rumor has it that Walmart changed their slogan to "Save money. Live better" due to the lack of control of the internet .com version AlwaysLowPrices.com. It seems that AlwaysLowPrices.com is very connected to Walmart's image or Walmart would not have given Mr. Morehouse a Cease and desist letter.
What this means is AlwaysLowPrices.com (Canna Paste with franchises soon to open ) can legally promote their stores and website using the Always Low Prices slogan. This is a very strange legal conflict due to the fact that the .com was purchased prior to Walmart's trademark and yet both parties can use Always Low Prices.
In 2010, Brad Morehouse contacted Walmart to offer them the domain name for a price but ironically the attorneys again threaten Mr. Morehouse as the attorney obviously was clueless on the prior 2004 dispute. The attorney then insulted Mr. Morehouse with an offer of $500.00 for the name.
One could only imagine how many millions of dollars went into Sam Waltons slogan and yet Walmart's attorneys to this day pridefully refuse to spend chump change to protect their branding. Imagine if Alice, John, Rob or Jim Walton happens to drive by and see Always Low Prices Cannabis store. We can only assume that somebody's buttocks will get reamed back at headquarters.
