Infringement Insurance??

In Trademark Disputes    -  updated on 11/11/2009
I am in the process of licensing my trademark to a large apparel manufacturer.  We are very close to finalizing the agreement but their attorney is asking us to "obtain and provide evidence of Commercial General Liability (?CGL?) insurance in the amount of $1,000,00 Per Occurrence and $3,000,000 Annual Aggregate.  The CGL insurance policy shall cover ?advertising injury,? including but not limited to payment for the defense against a claim of copyright infringement, trademark i...

Service Marked instead of Trademarked

In Service Marks    -  updated on 11/11/2009
Hello, I was in process of trying to register a business name that I am starting and somehow I just noticed it has me under "Service Mark" rather than a "Trademark". I am worried if that will become an issue later? I will be a retail florist. It is now filed under 1B so should I have it changed right now? If so, what is the process of doing this? Or should I wait and see if I do get it approved and when I later start my business, and change it into a 1A basis, I can reques...

I want to trademark a name that contains the name of another brand, possible?

In Can I Trademark it?    -  updated on 11/11/2009
Hey all,
    I'm considering getting a name trademarked that contains the name of another brand.  Say a brand already exists in the auto industry called "salt", what is the likelihood that a new trademark "saltcraft" will be granted by the USPTO?  I've heard that the USPTO is pretty conservative.  I've checked the TESS archive and there are other companies with the word "salt" as part of their brand name in the same in...

Can I trademark a mark that contains word already trademarked by another company

In Can I Trademark it?    -  updated on 11/11/2009
My company has recently been served a summons to appear in court regarding a trademark infringement case.  The other company has the legal rights to the mark we have been using, and we have been in licensing talks to continue to use their trademark.  There are a couple of questions, and I have already consulted a few lawyers about them but the more opinions the better.  I will use the word "Soup" to represent the mark.  The trademark is being use to describe a go...
Are these names/domains too similar?

Are these names/domains too similar?

In Domain Names    -  updated on 11/11/2009
Well the person who was going selling me the alternative domain I was interested in has rather rudely disappeared off the face of the planet, so I am just going to go ahead with the potentially similar name. Thank you both for the replies, though I must admit I am just as confused as I was to begin with .
IP domains offered by TM offices

IP domains offered by TM offices

In Domain Names    -  updated on 11/11/2009
I am quite amazed that trademark offices do not add domain registration to their service given that domains really are TMs online.

I am working for a domain registrar with focus on IP domains. We are in the phase of developing some new products directed towards TM holders in order to secure their IP domains in the countries where their TM is protected.
Perhaps you could give me some good ideas about such a solution. What makes trademark offices tick if you were to implement this pro...

Trademark desputes regarding domains.

Trademark desputes regarding domains.

In Domain Names    -  updated on 11/11/2009
In the case of a despute over a domain name going before a panel:

(1) the domain name registered by the Respondent is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which Complainant has rights;
(2) the Respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and
(3) the domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith.

I understand (1) but what about the other two?  Can someone give me some examples?  Do...

I a couple of years ago I started dealing with a Chinese factory that made high tech products.  They provided me with "emailed" authorization to use their name here in the states to market the products they made.  So we did and went as far as filing for registartion with the USPTO, I filed it myself, responded to office actions and the like and finally got the mark published.  It was easier than I though and will do again soon for ...

There seems to be a steady stream of botted posts to reddit for new trademarks registered through this site. This is poor form, especially for a company that supposedly prides itself on its social networking abilities and reflects badly on yourselves and your clients.
