Subject: Brand Infringement
Ms. Mendoza,Our public relations agency represents Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram and we are writing to you because your recent video, Rainbow Summer Watermelon Salsa is confusingly similar to the Watermelon Gazpacho recipe that was created by our Client on August 29, 2012. The recipe contains the majority of ingredients from her original recipe, making "your "recipe a copy of hers. You must cease immediately to use any recipes that are built or expanded on our client's intellectual property.Plainly, your brand representation, look and feel is extremely referential to Kristina's branding, food styling and even fonts used in her videos. We are flattered that you may admire Kristina, the fame she has built to date and the global expansion of her brand. However, as publicists we strongly encourage you to find your own voice, branding and filming style so that your brand is not copying our Client.We request that you remove that video from your YouTube Channel immediately and consider any inappropriate competition or referential actions in the future. We will be watching you brand for any similarties that may cause consumer confusion. If you do not comply we will commence legal action pursuing all appropriate remedies.If you have any questions, I encourage you to call me directly: 713-894-4040.Sincerely,Jessica Zapatero

We apologize for their behavior and feel part responsible as we promoted them so heavily over the last few years and are as disappointed as you are.
Wow, how can they even sleep at night doing what they do and being fake as hell... This seriously makes me lose faith in mankind, how can people be this horrible and mean to each other and still put a smile on their face and carry on doing the same thing?
To me they are not true vegans. They're just worried about themselves and their health and nothing else. Don't care about the planet, or the animals or other people, just themselves. That's not being vegan, that's being a horrible selfish person.
There is no intellectual property on recipes. If you share it, it becomes public. So if they don't want their recipes to be copied, they just have to stop publishing them in Youtube.
Glad you posted this. How sad that she is behaves this way, but in a way, not surprised...

On Jessica Zapatero's PR site Kristina is listed as the number one case study for the firm's success:
Objective: Develop a strategy to build and grow a celebrity following for Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram,
a chic vegan trend-setter and pioneer in the vegan & vegetarian movement.
Strategy: By pairing social media with strategic video marketing campaigns, newsletters, public speaking opportunities, culinary programs, and media appearances, we developed a successful strategy to launch Kristina’s mission of encouraging Houston to live a more healthful lifestyle through consuming whole, local organic fruits and vegetables.
Results: Kristina’s popularity has surpassed our initial goals, as she has had to create and produce two You Tube channels: FullyRaw with Kristina and Rawfully Organic to manage her audience. She now has a following of over 34,000 supporters and has surpassed 1,500,000 views in just over one year. Just shy of two years, she has become the new face of the vegan, RAW movement as her fire has been caught by the local broadcast, print, and online media. She has been interviewed and been a guest contributor on various outlets including CNN en Español, Fox 26, 39 Online KPRC, and KHOU in Houston. Watch for her in 2013 as she debuts on PBS and completes her first cookbook: FullyRaw Recipes."

No full time marketing team either.
I feel sorry for Mike how much money he will lose this year cos those fame whores and money grubbers took him to the cleaners and let his festival rot and never promoted it overtly unless there was something financial in it for them and even then they only did it last minute when the sign up rate is always low.
*facepalm*. I'd still focus at other organizations, outside of the 80/10/10 lifestyle, regardless. Better yet, focusing on one's own videos, while promoting other people with the same vision for the planet.
I would like to see a response from harley. Micheal said harley flat out lied about how much Dr. Doug got paid.
