RE: Addendum to Pure
Herbs, Ltd. Distributor Application Agreement
Dear Valued Distributors:
Prior to 1976, there were many companies providing herbal products in a solid
form, such as tablets and capsules. Gisela and I were strong believers in the
healthy benefits of herbal products, but felt that if these same products could
be deliver in a liquid form, they would provide far better nutritional benefit
as they could be more easily absorbed by the human body. This provided the
inspiration for our herbal business which has since become known as "Pure Herbs,
Ltd.®" The response and acceptance of our unique herbal products was
overwhelming and we quickly went from our kitchen table to our first
manufacturing facility. At that time Gisela and I wanted to select a name for
our new company which would be unique and set us apart from our competitors.
After considering many options we chose "Pure Herbs, Ltd.®" because we felt that
it best reflected our philosophy to promote good health through the use of our
unique liquid herbal products. Little did we know in 1976, that these efforts
and hard work would turn into the present day Pure Herbs that is distributing
quality herbal products to customers throughout the world via a network of more
than 33,000 distributors.
As the company's reputation grew we decided to take the necessary steps to
insure that no one else could use the name Pure Hers, Ltd.® or Pure Herbs when
identifying their company or herbal products. On December 14, 1992, we submitted
our trademark application and on June 21, 1994, the United States Patent and
Trademark Office granted trademark status to the name Pure, Herbs, Ltd.® Since
then we have spent a considerable amount of time and money in marketing and
promoting the name Pure Herbs, Ltd.® and Pure Herbs.
Recently our attorneys brought to our attention that other herbal product
manufacturers were using our trademark or a derivative thereof, i.e. Pure Herbs.
They explained that in order to keep and preserve this valuable asset we must
take action to prevent any other entity from using Pure Herbs, Ltd.® or Pure
Herbs. Based upon their advice, we have instructed our attorneys to send Cease
and Desist Letters to various manufacturers who are presently using the name or
nomenclature Pure Herbs on their website, as part of their corporate name or in
In addition to protecting our trademark from outside competitors, our attorneys
informed us that our distributors must also follow the same rules and
regulations when using the names Pure Herbs, Ltd.® and/or Pure Herbs. After
extensive discussions, our attorneys have drafted the attached "Addendum to Pure
Herbs, Ltd.® Distributor Application Agreement" ("hereinafter Addendum"). This
Addendum contains a few simple rules and regulations which will protect the Pure
Herbs trademark while, at the same time, provide each distributor with a clear
understanding as to how our trademarked name can or cannot be used. Our counsel
informed us that it is equally important that our distributors follow the
various rules and regulations promulgated under the United States trademark
laws. Apparently if we do not all abide by these rules, Pure Herbs could lose
its valuable trademark which it has promoted over the past 30 years. This would
also negatively impact you as distributors. Therefore, it is in all of our best
interests that everyone adheres to the terms and conditions contain in the
While each of you should carefully review the enclosed Addendum, let me briefly
summarize its contents:
No distributor can use the name Pure Herbs, Ltd.® or Pure Herbs or any variation
thereof as part of their corporate name or business enterprise.
No Distributor may use the name Pure Herbs, Ltd.® or Pure Herbs or any variation
thereof in their website or domain name.
When providing information regarding Pure Herbs products, distributors shall
only use information which has been approved by Pure Herbs.
On each website, marketing and promotional materials, distributors must clearly
and prominently state that they are "independent distributors of Pure Herbs
products" and shall not in any way represent that they are part of or an agent
of Pure Herbs, Ltd.®
No distributor shall make any false or misleading statement regarding Pure Herbs
After reading the Addendum, you may be thinking how can I use the name Pure
Herbs, Ltd.® or Pure Herbs. Each distributor may and should represent themselves
as an independent distributor of Pure Herbs, Ltd.® products. As part of their
promotional and informational materials and /or their website, a distributor may
accurately identify all of the herbal products sold by Pure Herbs. Also, on your
website you can provide a link to the Pure Herbs, Ltd.® website,
www.pureherbs.com. You may also reproduce any of the information or documents
provided by Pure Herbs on its website or through its mailings, but this
information should be identified as to its source and must not be altered. This
is not intended to be an exhaustive list of how the name Pure Herbs can be used,
but it should provide you with some general ideas. In a nutshell, we are trying
to prevent the public from thinking that the distributor is an agent or part of
the Pure Herbs, Ltd.® corporation.
The Addendum should not, in any way, hinder you from successfully promoting the
good name of Pure Herbs and its herbal products. Please carefully review the
attached Addendum and make whatever adjustments and changes that are necessary
to bring your business in line with these few simple rules. All changes must be
made within thirty (30) days of the date of this letter.
If you have any questions regarding these or any other matters, please do not
hesitate to contact us. Wishing you a successful and prosperous New Year, we
Very truly yours,
Dr. Eugene C. Watkins,
Chairman and President
Gisela G. Watkins
