Your question about the the trademark protection obtained for Vassula and True Life in God is a reasonable one. But the answer is straightforward. A supporter of Vassula took out the protection for one reason and one reason only. To protect the messages from misuse. The legal action taken against Maria Pio was done because the lady was causing so many problems misinforming clergy prior to Vassula witnessing around the world. Although her website has since been duplicated under different ownership, she herself has stopped her attacks on Vassula and that has resolved the basic problem that led to the legal action. The TLIG foundation was set up, again, to protect the messages. It is registered in Switzerland simply because the people who set it up come from Switzerland. As for your question that seems to suggest you consider that someone needs permission to promote messages from God, I can only say I believe you are mistaken.
