Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered

Q. Can you sell something trademarked in a different good and service listed?
A: Yes, it is possible to sell something in completely unrelated goods and services. You need to get a comprehensive trademark search analysis on the proposed use of the trademark. The trademark attorney needs to analyze your proposed use of the trademark with everything in the market including USPTO database, state databases, common law search, etc. However, assume that you may probably get a cease and desist letter from the trademark owner about the use of the mark. Sometimes, trademark owners and attorneys aggressively use cease and desist letters to stop any use even unrelated. Legally they can't stop unrelated use and there is no likelihood of confusion. You also need to factor in whether this is all worth it considering the legal cost associated with responding to cease and desist letters. Therefore, please consider doing a self-evaluation of your economic resources, capabilities and the need to use that particular mark. If you want to know more about trademark search, please check the trademark search necessity web-link below: https://affordabletrademarkattorney.com/trademark-faqs/trademark-search-necessity/ Good luck!
Q. Can we use the term 'Craigslist' in a title for a tv show concept?
A: You cannot use "craigslist" in a title for TV show concept. Craigslist website is an established and well-known website for advertising goods and services. You may cause costumer confusion as to the "association" of the brand craigslist. Creating false association is a violation of lanham act. If you want further analysis, you can hire an intellectual property attorney. Once your TV show gets publicized with "craigslist" word in it, you will most probably get sued. Risk is too high for this type of association with a well-known brand with out any license. Disclaimer: The response is general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advise. If you would like to have legal advise, then please consult any competent intellectual property attorney privately to discuss your case and establish proper attorney-client relationship.

Q. How do you go about appealing oppositions when your lawyer and you no longer speak but they're listed as the attorney?
A: You may have signed a retainer or engagement agreement with your lawyer while taking the help for trademark registration purposes. That engagement agreement will explain in detail about the agreement termination. Usually lawyers get an engagement agreement only for a particular purpose. If that purpose is served, agreement terminates. Sometimes lawyers also explicitly state via email or postal mail that they no longer represent you. In this situation, your lawyer may have been listed as attorney while filing a trademark application. This listing on trademark website do not by itself compel your lawyer to represent you. You engagement agreement controls the terms of the availability of your lawyer.
