I check my spelling in random emails two to three times...you would think something as important as the name of a franchise in court paperwork they would spend an extra 10 seconds to quadruple check it no?

I mean how hard is it?


To be fair and clear, it's not court paperwork I linked on the last page; however it IS the web page of the actual lawyer who represented them in court. Here ya go, for convenience's sake: Jonathan D. Reichman, Kenyon Law Firm ...Second paragraph says he handled "complex issues" for characters and properties such as: BerenstEin Bears (among others.)

ETA: But like you said... you meticulously check your emails. So do I. I would think the Law Firm would come down hard on employees who don't spell client's names correctly on public web pages! Heck, I used to do the web site for the local school district, and I got calls immediately if I missed a typo!

I am not questioning his intelligence.



If this Trademark, Copyright, Licensing Lawyer is so SMART as his page says, then surely HE knows how to spell "Berenstein Bears" right???

And like I asked several times, who wrote it? Do you know that he did?



For my part, I find the coincidental "misspelling" too strange to be merely coincidental.
It's strange to you. That's fine.

ETA: Uh oh. I have an idea for a parody song and video, "What Do The Books Say?"

My point was: He is their lawyer, he is so SMART, that MUST be the correct spelling.


And like I asked several times, who wrote it? Do you know that he did?

Pretty sure I addressed this question already. I assume it was a data entry person. I also assume said data entry person is tasked with extreme attention to detail. On all things representing the Firm, whether confidential or in the public domain.

Thanks. I think?

ETA: Sorry about the bungled quoted reply. Fixed it, I think!

Holy cow! I have to catch up on four pages! You guys move fast.

Quick thought though, does anyone know a neurologist or anyone familiar with brain processes?

Ok. My point is just, what does that have to do with his 'smarts'? Does he read his bio on the site? I don't know.

What do you think of the very topical song parody "What Do The Books Say?"

I have no idea why your post looks like that. It says it's my quote but I haven't posted any of that.


?????


Haha, sorry... re-read it, please. I think I fixed it.

I find the lawyer link very interesting. Obviously the Berenstein's knew people were spelling their name incorrectly, as evidenced by their son's supposed quote. Soooo, they should have double double checked that. Yes?

Good point, that! Wonder if they'll like being sourced on ATS because of it?

Ok, I admit it was a snarky comment... but seriously, he SHOULD proof his own bio. It's what the whole world sees as a reflection of him and not the data entry person. But maybe he's too busy or maybe he's too cheap to pay a competent detail-oriented assistant. I just couldn't tell you. The irony for me is that the ONLY typo on the entire page is... *cue spooky music* ...Berenstein.

I'm not familiar with it... can you link it?

THANK YOU!!!

I have found lots of teacher pdf's with outlines of reading material for different age groups. They are all spelled 'stein'. These are teachers, for Pete's sake!!!
Book store owners too.

Something is going on that we don't understand. We don't have to hate on each other.
It's a mystery lol...who doesn't love a good mystery?

I've already covered this. Any text editor corrects the spelling automatically. Word corrects it as soon as you hit the space bar to go to the next word.

Actually, to debate the spellcheck theory, my very first few posts in this thread were mistakenly about this very thing.

My spellcheck absolutely would not have Berenstain, at all. (Still doesn't)

It won't have Berenstein either, but I have changed it to accept it.

It will however allow Bernstein. Go back and look if you can't remember the post in question.

Eta - and typically you would still proofread your work with or without spellcheck.

This is a very interesting thread. As you no doubt would agree, as this thread over all others in the six years you have been a member here has gripped you in it's spell to the level that over 25 percent of your total focus in ats is spent here. Of your 47 posts to date, 13 have been here, in this thread. To me on a psychological level in looking at the human mind that is just as fascinating as the memory issue the subject matter this thread presents.

What is it about this thread and this particular subject in general that has got you so passionately stirred up? There have been countless other threads that have been way more over the top in terms of craziness that did not strike your fancy, but this thread. This thread got your goat. Why is that?

Just curious.

Well, here's another source that thinks it's spelled Berenstein, and they aren't typing in a slew of books to sell online:

Online Name Encyclopedia

It lists name distribution worldwide for a particular surname (in this case, Berenstein) and then lists trivia, such as:


Famous people: Guno Berenstein

Writers: Alejandro Berenstein, Fabian Berenstein, Alexandre Berenstein, Alex Berenstein, Mark L. Berenstein, Carlos A. Berenstein, Rhona J. Berenstein, Stan and Jan Berenstein, Frederick H. Berenstein, Paola Berenstein Jacques

Books: "BERENSTEIN BEARS LEARN ABOUT S" "Berenstein Bears"


All of those writers, and they list one book example. Can ya dig it?

I watched a little television today at lunch. A rare thing. I was scanning down the menu and saw 'Berenstain Bears.' I had a hunch that there was potential for synchronicity. I clicked on it and the first line of dialogue was "I'm like a ghost now." It was coming from an old bear that used to be a lighthouse operator, but the lighthouse got closed. Make of it what you will.

So it must be the Berenstain family who is spelling their own name wrong?

Have you ever heard of the
