Hello,

Please remember that Trademark rights are territorial in nature. You can use this name if it is not registered by anyone else in Baku, Azerbaijan for similar kind of services.

To see whether this mark is available for registration in the US, you can search on www.trademarkia.com absolutely free. Trademarkia is the world's largest visual search engine.

When opposing a mark's registration at the TTAB, how can you prove that your mark is famous amongst the general consuming public, so that you will be able to successfully survive a famousness challenge to a dilution claim under the more stringent Trademark Dilution Reform Act?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, I am wondering if it's legal to make a shirt that reads "Spurs" or "Pacers" or even "Bryant" without directing referencing the NBA.  Is the word "Spurs" copyrighted? 

How about "SA SPURS"?
