Major benefits of Trade Mark Registration

 Trademark registration provides several benefits for businesses and individuals.


First, it gives the registrant exclusive rights to use the trademark in connection with the goods and services specified in the registration. This means that no one else can use a similar trademark for similar goods or services, preventing confusion among consumers and protecting the registrant's reputation and goodwill.


Second, registered trademarks serve as a source of evidence in legal proceedings. In the event of a trademark infringement dispute, the registration serves as prima facie evidence of the validity of the trademark and the registrant's ownership. This can save the registrant time and money in court proceedings.


Third, registered trademarks can be licensed or assigned, which allows the registrant to generate revenue from their trademark by allowing others to use it. This can be especially valuable for small businesses or individuals who may not have the resources to expand their use of the trademark.


Fourth, registered trademarks can be used as collateral for loans or investments. Banks and investors may be more willing to provide financing to a business that has a registered trademark, as it can serve as a form of intellectual property that can be sold or licensed in the future.


Fifth, registered trademarks can serve as a barrier to entry for potential competitors. As registration provides exclusive rights to use the trademark, competitors may be deterred from entering the market or may be forced to choose a different name or branding.


Sixth, registration makes it easier for businesses to protect their trademark rights in foreign countries. By registering their trademark in the United States, businesses can use the registration as a basis for filing for protection in other countries.


Overall, trademark registration provides legal protection, economic benefits, and a competitive advantage for businesses and individuals. It can help to prevent confusion among consumers, serve as evidence in legal proceedings, generate revenue, and serve as a barrier to entry for competitors. In addition, it also makes it easier for businesses to protect their trademark rights in foreign countries.

Misappropriation of likeness, it's in the game

Misappropriation of likeness, it's in the game With the recent announcement that EA will be venturing back into the world of college sports for one of their upcoming games. It is essential to look at the reasons for its (over a decade-long) hiatus from making college sports games. Several high-profile cases took down a very profitable area of sports gaming almost ten years ago, over a simple but crucial element to the games, the players.  Privacy and personality laws in the United States is an emerging area of law founded on the basis that is based in tort law. It deals with the ideas that a person has rights: 1. To be left alone; 2. To not have public disclosure of private facts; 3. To not be depicted in a false light; and 4. To not have your name and likeness misappropriated.  On these critical tenets, personality laws have become increasingly more prevalent as, due to advances in technologies, it is becoming easier for one's likeness to be copied and distributed.  Th

The Federal Court this week delivered their judgement on  Australian Competition and Consumer Commission v Service Seeking Pty Ltd  [2020] FCA 1040 going all out by handing out whopping fines, legal costs orders and ordering Service Seeking Pty Ltd to establish a, undoubtedly expensive, compliance system to be monitored by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).  What did they do that was so bad?  According to the Federal Court of Australia, they created a system in which businesses could write their own customer reviews.  With a rating system less defined than what constitutes a 5-star rating in an Uber trip, businesses could write a review, assign a star rating and send it off to their customer for approval. If the customer didn’t respond or even open the email containing the review, then the review was automatically published online after a set period. By estimates of the Court, approximately 80% of the reviews published on the website for the period that this sch

You can take the bread company out of Hawaii, but you can't take Hawaii out of the bread company.

You can take the bread company out of Hawaii, but you can't take Hawaii out of the bread company. What do you do when your favourite company that makes your favourite type of bread makes it bread outside of your favourite state? You take them to court, or at least that is what one man has done.  A man in New York has filed a class action against bread maker, King's Hawaiian over the sweet rolls alleging that the company misled him into believing that the rolls are actually made in Hawaii. Robert Galinsky is pursuing a class-action lawsuit against the company claiming unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud. King's Hawaiian packaging Galinsky claims that Hawaiian Rolls by itself "does not denote a roll made in Hawaii any more than a 'Moon Pie' can claim to have been baked on the moon." But the company using the original location of its factory, 'Hilo, Hawaii' in its packaging is misleading to customers.  If Galinsky can convince th
