I sense an inbalance in the blog. In the last 5 posts, only ONE has been comprised of our typical ego driven rant on our domination of all opponents, big or small. I almost shudder at the realization that we have actually had a string of sophisticated and legally educational postings.

say it aint so...


I'd just like to point out that:
(1) Your week ended on Tuesday. I was just keeping it alive
(2) One post does not constitute a "thread"
(3) Your mark is merely descriptive and you failed to demonstrate the secondary meaning required to register that trademark. Thus, your designation, which is merely descriptive, is DENIED registration under §2(e)(1) of the Trademark Act, 15 U.S.C. §1052(e)(1). This action is FINAL.

Ok, I can see what this week's poll will be:

Who is the biggest dork?

1. Prophet
2. Jurisconsultus


Wow. Prophet is telling yours truly, the trademark guru, that my mark is merely descriptive. Wow. As you could see I have only claimed common law trademark protection. Once I obtain the requisite five years use, I will take my trademark to the USPTO and get it registered on the Principal Register through Section 2(f). And unlike most applications written by patent attorneys, my identification of goods will not be horrendous

You know I really wasn't sure how this week's poll would turn out... that is until J.C.'s last post. Man, you've got to a get a grip.

Sui Generis

JD, you've got it alllll wrong. Prophet is obviously the dork, because VA is for "_____", and JC falls into that category. Apples and oranges, my friend, apples and oranges.
