Filing TM in 2 countries seperately

Posted by . updated on 5/3/2012
Hi,

I run a company that is based both in the UK and in the US.

We have been in business for 10 years and as I'm a dual citizen of the US & the UK, I do business for this company in both countries and live 6 months out of the year in each.

We filed for a trademark in the US for this business in 2005, but my business partner at the time did not follow through and unbeknownst to me, it had become abandoned.

I have since filed for the TM in the UK and would like to file again for this mark in the US.

Would it be possible to file in the US via the USPTO directly (using my US adddress) instead of going through the UK IPO, where my existing TM is filed in the UK?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I want to use the European CE logo as the trade mark of my company.
My business name is something like "Cats & Elephants" thats why i want to use it, as these are the first initials of the company name.
I have no intentions of exporting my products out of country.

If i am not allowed , can i use the logo by having some slight changes in it, for example drawing a round border around the CE Logo or anything like that ?

Any help is appreciated.

Client wants to file in a few countries.  So, we go via Madrid, however, I noticed that New Zealand and Mexico are not part of Madrid.  Has anyone filed in these countries?  Can you suggest counsel?  It looks like local counsel is needed because in the registration via New Zealand IP they need a NZ address.   I have not checked for Mexico yet.

Why aren't section 44(e)

What is the policy reason allowing a foreign company to register a trademark in the USA under 44(e) and then later apply for the exact same trademark in the same category, but based upon 1(b) (intent-to-use)?  Note that when applying under 44(e) the applicant must swear to have the intent to use the mark in the USA.

The intent to use element already exists in the original 44(e) application/registration, so how is the new 1(b) any different? 

Thanks in advance ...

I launched a website about a year ago selling one single product (for exemple: photo books).
A bigger company located in the UK sent me a letter (from the CEO, no attorneys yet) stating that they own the Intellectual Property rights of this product.
They have been in business many years before me and have partnerships with big US websites. They state owning the IP rights, Copyright, general goodwill, visual effect and use of the term "PhotoBooks". After checking, I do see ...
