Yes, Sean Gallagher is at it again. After losing the Pilates trademark in an historic federal court decision, Sean's now suing over the social media sharing of historical Pilates images that he purchased.
This is a clear example of Brené Brown's power over vs. power with, as was his whole approach to the Pilates trademark - he doesn't understand why he should allow his competition to use the images.
Here I share my take on the first lawsuit, how it divided the Pilates community, and what we need to do now to move forward in a strong and collaborative way.
