Are these US-only trademarks? Because I'm pretty lazy when it comes to naming my beers... Perhaps I should file for the trademark here in Europe... "Phil's Two-Hearted Evil Cousin 'Old Rasputin' aka Raging b**** Boston Lager"
Just send me 3 bottles and a mortgage payment for all those "g"s and we're good.
As for General Motors...they're lucky I havent' gone after them!
I had the same thought about US versus rest of the world. Not gonna hire a lawyer to find out but I'm curious.
Too late - I just registered "Strange Brew", "Strange Brewing" and any derivative thereof in English, French and Spanish in both Canada and Mexico. Now let's see ... I need to write two cease and desist letters to make sure no sales occur in either of those countries!! I see how this works. Much better than creating a real business.
Sorry, I don't think you understand it yet. What you want to do is wait for someone to actually make sales in those countries, then you sue them for a portion of those royalties for violating your trademark. LOL
No confusion here - tongue was firmly planted in cheek!
