Q. PARK ‘N FLY is US Service Mark registered Does the following in any way unlawful “www.bestparkandflydeals.com”
A: Good question, probably belongs in the Trademarks category since Trademarks and Servicemarks are the same set of rules. Your question would boil down to whether an objective consumer would be confused by the domain, if they would be then it would potentially be an infringement.

That being the case it depends entirely on the basis for the denial as to whether you should start an Art. 78 proceeding. Now, as to the time or statute of limitations issue, I am not aware of ANY statute of limitations on correcting a defect in a birth certificate and I'd be pretty shocked if there is one because no matter the time frame the gov't has a compelling interest in recording accurate birth records. ...
