Belay that BS!   ;D    (The old man on my ship's favorite expression when some junior officer gave a less than stellar order while standing conn).

Am I going to have to request permission to come aboard?  Are you going to blast music from the 1MC? Are you going to have a gedunk store?  Am I going to have to stand before the mast if I say something bad about your beer? :)

Yeah, that is my next step.  I have the name trademarked, and I don't see how someone could trademark an anchor.  It would have to be identical in every respect.

IANAL - but it seems like the standard used for these things is if the image is close enough to confuse the average (i.e. not so bright) person then it is an infringement. 

My first thought when I looked at the logo was "Anchor Steam may have an issue with that" and I don't live in a place where their beers are even sold.  That doesn't really mean anything though, I'm a worrier by nature.  "Every silver lining has a tough of gray" seemed like a so obviously true statement that there was no need to write it down.  ::)

Ha!  I wish I were better at funny responses.  So the answers are: yes, yes, and maybe.  The only certain thing is if you come in with your cover on and hear the ship's bell ring, you buy everyone a round!

Dang, Mark.

It's been decades since I heard the term 1MC. And quite a while since hearing gedunk.

I don't know if this brings back fond memories or nightmares.

I received my DD 214 over thirty years ago, but there are things that one just does not forget.

How could I forget about that one?
