Can I trademark or commercially use this phrase?
In Branding - updated on 7/11/2015
Hi! I was interested in starting a parody t-shirt company based around the phrase "Trust the Process" based on the NBA Philadelphia basketball team.
I saw that the phrase is copyrighted by someone in Illinois. Can I trademark it and specify parody in Philly? How does that work?
If not, can I brand with something else but use the phrase on my tshirts?
Thanks for the help!
