Legal Answers
48 Questions Answered

Q. Do you have to blur out car logo on personal image if use for custom shirt?
A: You can't use another's logo in a confusingly similar manner, i.e. that is likely to cause confusion as to the source of the goods or insinuates endorsement.
Q. I own a trademark and my website with the name got hijacked by a cybersquatting company. Lost profits ect. Options?
A: You need to have a consultation with an attorney to discuss your options. There are many.
Q. Can I claim a trademark that contains a word that is ALREADY trademarked? Doctor Tasty's Mega Bites vs "Megabites"
A: It will definitely be rejected. A patent attorney could very likely overcome that rejection, however. Feel free to set up a consultation with me. https://calendly.com/ahajiamospllc/15min
Q. Include trademarked word in the title
A: It depends. If the use of the word is likely to cause confusion as to the source of the goods used in association with the trademark (registered), then that's trademark infringement.
Q. hi to register a trademark i should make design or it could be just a name?
A: I can't let you know if you can receive a trademark on that name. However, I can confirm that your design and name of the product should both be protected as they are two separate trademarks.
Q. I want to change the entity's type to micro, since i am an individual, so the maintenance fee would not be high
A: You just need to file a certificate of micro entity status. You can get the form at uspto.gov/forms.
Q. I want to print the words " Pig beach" "The swimming pigs" on tshirts. Am I allowed to do this?
A: You should have a trademark search conducted by a trademark attorney.
Q. HI, Selling on Ebay if the name THE NORTH FACE is a trademark violation can you just use North Face?
A: You need a comprehensive consultation. The issues that you have presented are too complex for this forum.
Q. How do I trademark a business name?
A: Business names are not eligible for trademarks. If you are using the business name is used in association with produce or service, then you may be eligible for a trademark. You should consult a trademark attorney. I offer free consults. https://calendly.com/ahajiamospllc/15min
