Newspaper Trademarks

Posted by . updated on 11/11/2009
I was wondering if someone could help me out ... Does anyone know a site/resource where I could find a list of trademarks a newspaper/publisher would have? Other than the obvious (e.g. name of paper, color scheme etc). I'm just trying to get some type of thought process going ... Thank ya'll so much! Becca

You need to either pay someone to do the searching, or do the work yourself by using the online trademark databases at respective national trademark offices (e.g. USPTO, UKPA, OHIM) - these allow search by various fields, including owner (i.e. the business owner of a newspaper).

Trademarks are all signs that serve to distinguish products or services of certain denomination from those of their competitors. They can be denominative, emblematic or mixed, olfactory, three-dimensional.

Tanyaa,
Thanks for your post, but I'd like to offer some suggestions if you plan to become an active participant in the future.  First, disclose some of your backgroud and experience so others can determine the amount of trust they can place in your posts.  Second, when you do post, please try to make at least some attempt at a post that is relevant to the question posed.  Third, perhaps you could help us understand your connection to the MLS-related website you included in your post and how that is relevant to trademarks.  MLS listings and trademarks don't appear to go together very well.
Thanks again, and we welcome your input.

Bill,

"She" is just another spammer.  There's another, "lawyer", who doesn't seem to have figured out how to put his spam URLS into his posts yet.  I'm not sure why any of them bother with such a small, specialized forum, but such is life.

We have a trademark license and patent number agreement that we send to our customers. The question is whether this agreement is necessary. What does an agreement like this give us that the PTO doesn't, when we register our trademarks and patents? What are the benefits of having this type of agreement? Does it give us any more control over the patent or mark? Thank for your help.

I am working with the Disney organization on a new product. My product is trademark driven and not patentable - It is the name that sells the product  - not the actual product itself. For some reason Disney had never thought of this and they told me that it was new to them.

I am in trademark licensing negotiations with a t-shirt company.  They are creating a new line using my trademark, lets say it's "Born free," and planning on mass distributing it.  My question is who should own the new artwork created for the new line?  My belief is that the owner of the trademark would have to own the artwork.

Thank you.

I understand that assignment of an ITU is not possible unless a SOU or Allegation of use has been filed, EXCEPT if the business is merged or bought or the assets associated with the mark are bought in entirety.

Question:  If the mark is in the individual's name, not the company of that individual, and another company seeking to acquire the ITU application and buy the associated goods from the company, does the acquiring company have a problem?
