Slap: American Psychiatric Association Targets One DSM5 Critic, Ignores Others

From the way the American Psychiatric Association threatened UK writer Suzy Chapman, one would think APA is fighting legal battles everywhere to protect its trademarks.

But Chapman appears to be in an elite category. Antidote wrote Monday about how APA forced Chapman to change the name and URL of her DSM-5 and ICD-11 Watch site, saying it infringed on APA’s trademark for its main guidebook, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

But similar sites and uses of APA trademarks abound. Why hasn’t the APA gone after them?

On December 22, I was served with two “cease and desist” letters on behalf of the publishing arm of the American Psychiatric Association, publishers of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – the DSM.

Which disorders go into the next DSM and how those disorders are defined is a public interest issue. Public interest and public trust are best served by an open and transparent development process – not by issuing threats of legal action against those providing internet platforms on which patients and professionals rely for timely and accurate information around the DSM-5 development process and how they might participate in that process, as stakeholders.

The American Psychiatric Association’s publishing arm has the right to protect its intellectual property and pursue trademark infringements where a case for improper use can be made. But employing heavy-handed, punitive, partial and legally questionable tactics against “fair use” of the DSM 5 mark, forcing internet site owners to change web addresses, is putting commercial interests before public participation – a PR fail and a disturbing abuse of power.

If you have a serious interest in a brand, product or company, you can, in a few minutes, set up your own website with a clever domain name that includes your target.

Jim Romenesko did this with Starbucks Gossip. A group of unions and activists did this with Making Change at Wal-Mart. And a team of obsessive Clark Kent loyalists did this with the Superman Super Site.

A few years ago, British writer Suzy Chapman started tracking the proposed changes by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to psychiatry’s guidebook: the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)…

American Psychiatric Association “Slapps” down web site critical of DSM5

James Gaulte | January 12, 2012

“Dr. Bernard Carroll, former head of psychiatry at Duke, writing on the blog Health Care Renewal, writes about an interesting conflict between the APA and a former editor of DSM. See here

“Dr. Allen Francis who edited DSM4 has been highly critical of the DSM process and particularly of the yet to be released DSM5. He expresses concern that psychiatry is being practiced less by psychiatrists and more by primary care physicians, who are busy and often not very well trained in managing psychiatric problem and at times strongly influenced by marketing.

“His criticism includes the charge that with the publication of DSM5, not yet released, there will be more patients diagnosed with DMS defined mental conditions as new diagnoses are being added and the criteria for others have been broadened. His comments regarding his view of the problems with DSM were appearing on at least one web site.

“Now the APA, who owns DSM and profits from its publication and use, has sent out a cease and desist threat to the website previously known as “dsm5watch”…”

Allen Frances, M.D. | January 12, 2012

“Last week I described the plight of Suzy Chapman, a well respected UK patient advocate forced to change the domain name of her website by the heavy handed tactics of the publishing arm of the American Psychiatric Association. The spurious legal excuse was commercial protection of the ‘DSM 5′ trademark; the probable intent was to stifle one of the internet’s best sources of DSM and ICD information. This bullying could not have come at a worse time – just as final decisions are being made on highly controversial DSM 5 proposals and with the third and final draft due for release this spring. This is precisely when a ragged and reckless DSM 5 can most benefit from the widest and most open discussion.”

This is not the first time the DSM 5 has come into the public’s eye (it’s been there pretty much since it got announced), but the focus has zoomed in on the machinations of the American Psychiatry Association, the force behind DSM 5, in protecting its DSM 5 brand while also maintaining closed control over the production of the new set of diagnoses.”

Is DSM 5 A Public Trust Or An APA Cash Cow?
Commercialism And Censorship Trump Concern For Quality

Allen Frances, M.D. |  January 03, 2012

“I am surprised and saddened by APA’s ill-conceived attempt to restrict Suzy Chapman’s free expression on DSM 5. It can only be in the service of the equally unworthy goals of censorship and/or commercialism. I simply can’t imagine that anything should ever be kept secret in the preparation of a diagnostic manual and wonder what in Suzy Chapman’s web site could possibly be so frightening to APA.

“Using a trademark to suppress comment is a violation of APA’s public trust to produce the best possible DSM 5. This is another indication that DSM has become too important for public health and for public policy for its revisions to be left under the exclusive control of one professional organization – particularly when that organization’s own financial future is at stake. This basic conflict of interest can be cured only by creating a new institutional framework to supervise the future DSM revisions. Censorship and commercial motivations must not warp the development of a safe and scientifically sound diagnostic manual.”

APA forces domain name change for DSM-5 and ICD-11 Watch site

Post #122 Shortlink: http://wp.me/pKrrB-1Ah

3 January, 2012

On December 22, with just one working day left before offices closed down for the Christmas and New Year holidays, I received two communications from the Licensing and Permissions department of American Psychiatric Publishing, A Division of American Psychiatric Association, informing me that the unauthorized use of the DSM 5 mark in my domain name is improper and in violation of United States Trademark Law.

I was advised that my actions may subject me to contributory infringement liability including increased damages for wilful infringement. I was requested to immediately cease and desist any and all use of the DSM 5 mark, remove the DSM 5 mark from my domain name and provide documentation confirming I had done so, and that any further use would be considered an infringement.

Given the difficulties of liaising from the UK with American Psychiatric Publishing and with my Californian based site hosts, WordPress, over the holiday and mindful of the implied consequences should I delay taking action, I considered I had little option but to change the site’s domain and title.

Since December 23, this site has been operating under the title Dx Revision Watch and the site’s domain name has been changed to

http://dxrevisionwatch.wordpress.com/

As a result of changing the domain name, links on websites, forums and social media platforms for posts published prior to December 23 and for pages cached on Google and other search engines before that date will no longer point to this site and will return a “site deleted” or 404 message.

If you have bookmarked or are linking to this site please update your links.

Today, on Psychology Today, Allen Frances, MD, who had chaired the DSM-IV Task Force, has blogged on the actions American Psychiatric Publishing has taken against this site:

DSM5 in Distress
The DSM’s impact on mental health practice and research.

Is DSM 5 A Public Trust Or An APA Cash Cow?
Commercialism And Censorship Trump Concern For Quality

Allen Frances, M.D. |  January 03, 2012

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/dsm5-in-distress/201201/is-dsm-5-public-trust-or-apa-cash-cow

Published on January 3, 2012 by Allen J. Frances, M.D. in DSM5 in Distress

DSM 5 will have a big impact on how millions of lives are led and how scarce mental health resources are spent. Getting the right diagnosis and treatment can be life enhancing, even life saving. Incorrect diagnosis can lead to the prescription of unnecessary and potentially harmful medication and to the diversion of services away from those who really need them and toward those who are better left alone. Preparing DSM 5 should be a public trust of the highest order.

But DSM 5 is also an enormously profitable commercial venture. DSMs are perpetual best sellers (at least one hundred thousand copies sold every year) netting the American Psychiatric Association yearly profits exceeding five million dollars.

From the very start of work on DSM 5, APA took unprecedented steps to protect its commercial interest – but in the process betrayed its obligation to the public trust. Work group members were recruited only on condition that they first sign confidentiality agreements – thereby squelching the free flow of ideas that is absolutely necessary to produce a quality diagnostic manual. ‘Intellectual property’ has been the priority – a safe, scientifically sound DSM 5 has been the victim.

DSM 5 commercialism and heavy handed censorship have recently assumed a new and troubling form. APA is exercising its ‘DSM 5′ trademark to unfairly stifle an extremely valuable source of information. Suzy Chapman, a patient advocate from England, runs a highly respected and authoritative site providing the best available information on the preparation of both DSM and ICD. Her writings can always be relied upon for fairness, accuracy, timeliness, and clarity. The site has gained a grateful following with over 40,000 views in its first two years.

Ms Chapman recently sent me the following email describing her David vs Goliath struggle with the APA and its disturbing implications both for DSM 5 and for internet freedom:

“Until last week, my website published under the domain name http://dsm5watch.wordpress.com/.

On December 22, I was stunned to receive two emails from the Licensing and Permissions department of American Psychiatric Publishing, claiming that the domain name my site operates under was infringing upon the DSM 5 trademark in violation of United States Trademark Law and that my unauthorized actions may subject me to contributory infringement liability including increased damages for willful infringement. I was told to cease and desist immediately all use of the DSM 5 mark and to provide documentation within ten days confirming I had done so.”

“Given my limited resources compared with APA’s deep pockets, I had no choice but to comply and was forced to change my site’s domain name to http://dxrevisionwatch.wordpress.com.

“Hits to the new site have plummeted dramatically and it will take months for traffic to recover – just at the time when crucial DSM 5 decisions are being made.”

“Was APA justified in seeking to exercise its trademark rights in this situation? Or do APA’s actions fly in the face of accepted internet trademark practice, common sense, and good public relations? I am not a lawyer, but I have made a careful study of ‘U.S. Trademark Law, Rules of Practice & Federal Statutes, U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, November 8, 2011′ and of many other available sources. My conclusion is that APA is making excessive and unwarranted claims for its DSM 5 trademark. Courts have found that using a trademark in a domain or subdomain name is ‘fair use’ if the purpose is non commercial, where there is no intent to mislead, where use of the mark is pertinent to the subject of discussion, and where it is clear that the user is not implying endorsement by, or affiliation with, the holder of the mark.”

“The home page of my site clearly defines its purpose – ‘DSM-5 and ICD-11 Watch – Monitoring the development of DSM-5, ICD-11, ICD-10-CM’ and carries this disclaimer,

‘This site has no connection with and is not endorsed by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), American Psychiatric Publishing Inc., World Health Organization (WHO) or any other organization, institution, corporation or company. This site has no affiliations with any commercial or not-for-profit organization…This site does not accept advertising, sponsorship, funding or donations and has no commercial links with any organization, institution, corporation, company or individual.’”

“It puzzles and worries me that APA would seek to suppress my clearly non commercial resource created only to provide information and commentary on the revision process of two internationally used classifications. My only purpose is to inform interested stakeholders and those patient groups whose medical and social care may potentially be impacted by proposals for changes to diagnostic categories and criteria.”

“There is a paradox here. The APA has promoted its commitment to transparency of process, but has rarely demonstrated it. Much has been made of the posting of drafts for public review and soliciting feedback. But to usefully participate in this process, patients, patient groups, and advocacy organizations need to know about proposed changes and when and by what means they can input comment during public review periods. Now, because of APA’s arbitrary actions, it will be harder for them to find the information they need – just when they most need it.”

I am surprised and saddened by APA’s ill-conceived attempt to restrict Suzy Chapman’s free expression on DSM 5. It can only be in the service of the equally unworthy goals of censorship and/or commercialism. I simply can’t imagine that anything should ever be kept secret in the preparation of a diagnostic manual and wonder what in Suzy Chapman’s web site could possibly be so frightening to APA.

Using a trademark to suppress comment is a violation of APA’s public trust to produce the best possible DSM 5. This is another indication that DSM has become too important for public health and for public policy for its revisions to be left under the exclusive control of one professional organization – particularly when that organization’s own financial future is at stake. This basic conflict of interest can be cured only by creating a new institutional framework to supervise the future DSM revisions. Censorship and commercial motivations must not warp the development of a safe and scientifically sound diagnostic manual.
