My Hackspace is forced to leave it's rooms. We also have to legally fight to keep our name. Please help! This is horrible! /o\

Die Ulmer Stadtverwaltung will uns Ehrenamtlichen den Namen klauen und wirft uns aus den Räumlichkeiten am Weinhof.
Jetzt benötigen wir deine Unterstützung bei der Suche nach einem neuen Ort für das Verschwörhaus:

What bugs me most: I co-started the MakerMondays. Every 2. week we introduced visitors to the house+tools. Soon we needed more mentors for proper support. We asked the city for 💵 support. They denied.

Now they claim we are not welcoming enough and don't provide enough content.

They just informed us that they are swapping the locks today 🤡

@bleeptrack which hackerspace and city is that....?

Why is it even important what the city says?

@mcfly @bleeptrack did you check the whole thread? Ulm and verschwörhaus

@mcfly
Because we started as a cooperation in the intention to do cool stuff for and with the city. It's Verschwörhaus in Ulm.

@bleeptrack Yeah, working with the city is complicated. We have the same experience in Rotterdam and we don't want to do that anymore.

Today you talk to X, tomorrow to Y and the day after that to Z and everyone has a different idea, different goals, different understandings.

@bleeptrack wtf, I thought you need to move out in July?

@morre
At first it was August, then suddenly July and now we even have to fight to get our personal stuff out. What a shit show this is

@bleeptrack " Es geht in diesem Punkt nicht um eine weitere Eskalationsstufe"… 😩

@bleeptrack It sounds like you became inconvenient. Would be interesting how and to whom — and whether that’s a way to stop them.

@bleeptrack Die Pressemitteilung der Stadt ist auch geil:

Der Verein „Verschwörhaus e.V.“ wird in Zukunft nicht mehr am Weinhof unter dem Dach des Verschwörhauses der Stadt Ulm aktiv sein. In einer außerordentlichen Mitgliederversammlung am 3. Juni 2022 hat sich der Verein dagegen entschieden, den Widerspruch gegen die Markenanmeldung der Stadt zurückzunehmen.

Ahja.. Ihr habt den Namen eines eingetragenen Vereins als Markenname eingetragen als würde er euch gehören. Was habt ihr erwartet? 🤦‍♂️ 😠

@bleeptrack Welchen Gruppen wollen die sich denn genau öffnen, den Jungliberalen?

@bleeptrack
Mal Nachbarschaftlich weitergeleitet. Ehrenamt und Verein ist in DE mega ätzend. Mal sehen ob sich jemand meldet.

@bleeptrack

Registering your name as trademark behind your back is just dirty.

Why did they do that? Who came up with that name originally?

- Was it the name of the house you are in before the hackspace opened there?
- Did you come up with the name and publicized it in a way that the city want's to keep it?
- something else?

@xro
The community came up with the name and even had to fight a little to establish it. But now we are "successful" enough that they want to swallow the name.
