....Including a new registered trademark.

The heads-up from ESMB:

Adelaide org has a new sign on its building in large bold gold letters :

"LIFE IMPROVEMENT CENTRE "

Sorry , I don't have a photo as I have an old phone -
What are they up to? - Changeing names of corporations ? - Some sort of corporate ploy ? Trying to dodge the inevitable ? - the mind boggles ! - perhaps another ESMB person can get a good photo up soon ...

Note that it only covers "IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Educational services, namely, conducting courses in philosophy and religion. FIRST USE: 19881231. FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 19881231" in the US, so cannot be used for auditing.

Note also that "NO CLAIM IS MADE TO THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO USE 'LIFE IMPROVEMENT' APART FROM THE MARK AS SHOWN" appears on the main page for the mark.

Is it just the same old tax-exempt Scientology doing business as Life Improvement Centre? If so, that stinks, cause they're masquerading as secular while reaping the benefits of a religion.

This Life Improvement Center, in LA, openly says its doing Scientology and Dianetics. http://www.valleylifeimprovementcenter.com/

I knew the term "Life Improvement Course" on the inside to mean any of an number of introductory or entry level courses. "Life Improvement Centers" can be "field practices" or "test centers" or even "community centers" that sell and deliver "Life Improvement" courses. The Church of Scientology of Tampa promotes three "Life Improvement Centers" on their site: http://www.scientology-tampa.org/

RTC claimed a trademark for the name "Life Improvement Center," according to an IHELP License agreement and membership pack. Documents contained within this leak: http://forums.whyweprotest.net/threads/ ... ost-909597

Scientology News Issue 48 announced a Life Improvement Center connected with the Johannesburg Ideal Org. Also see on YouTube: Scientology Life Improvement Centre Opens in Johannesburg, South Africa (August 2010).

The operation at "Wealdon House in the UK is a "Life Improvement Center." http://www.wealdenhouselic.com/services.htm

The Adelaide org's website (scientology-adelaide.org) is very skimpy, and does not promote org-level services. Is it possible that their "org" status was downgraded and they're under control of an "Ideal" org elsewhere in Oz?

"Independent" Scientologists Les and Anita Warren also operate a "Life Improvement Center" in Deer Lake, Washington. Their site, http://www.lifeimp.com/, promotes their introductory and entry level services. In fact they're Rathbun's LRH Centennial Birthday Game award winners. http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2011/0 ... entennial/.
