Here's my question. Can someone trademark something that is in the public domain? For instance, Checkers. Now, I haven't checked to see if someone has already trademarked Checkers, but assuming they haven't, could someone trademark it? Or is that not allowed once the name is part of the public domain? What I envision is coming up with my own version of a game that is already in the public domain (say, checkers), along with my version of the rules, and I'm wondering if I could trademark it?

I just discovered a company is "REVIVED-AWAITING FURTHER ACTION" with the "Mark Name" I was planning to use for my new company, which I was told means their registration process is on-going. Assuming that company receives approval to trademark the name I want to use, can my new company name include part of their "Mark Name." For instance, if a mark name is GAMES, can I choose to trademark BABY GAMES? Is the entire word/phrase off limits because of a trademark?

I want to try and trademark a slogan before the nfl draft this thur april 28. I want to use the name of two la rams players and los angeles rams football. I am asking if this is even legal or are the domains on those names off limits. This slogan would be at risk since if the rams don't draft the player I have in the slogan and take the other guy then this won't fly. Can you please let me know what you think and If you say its ok I will file and pay for a trademark. thanks alex pachano

I just bought a domain name, however after a quick search I found out that the name is an active registered corp. with a live trademark. I was then wondering how I was able to buy the domanin name, and found out that it belongs to a defunct startup. I intend to register a different corp. name but use the same trademark name, although, the font and logo are much different. Will I run into issues with this?

I am wanting to register: Live. Love. Lash. as a trademark slogan for my business. There is a company that is named: Live Love Lash - There is no punctuation, our companies are in the same industry (beauty, salon services) and have the same class... will this make a difference? Or will it be a conflict and be revoked?

I am starting a business in Maine and want to use the name fearlesseating. I am not sure if I am able to use the name because someone has it tradmarked it in the education/entertainment category. I would trademark it in the medical category.. Our businesses are different. How do I proceed? Also, would i have to pay the federal fee along with the Trademarkia fee? Thank you so much!!
