The benefits of trade mark registration

 Trade mark registration can provide a number of benefits to businesses and individuals.


First and foremost, trade mark registration grants the exclusive right to use the mark in connection with the goods and services listed in the registration. This can prevent others from using a similar mark, which can help to protect a business's reputation and prevent consumer confusion.


Trade mark registration also serves as a form of legal protection. If a business's trade mark is infringed upon, the registered owner has the right to take legal action against the infringing party. This can help to deter others from using the mark without permission.


Trade mark registration can also serve as a valuable asset for a business. A registered trade mark can be licensed or assigned to others, providing the business with a potential source of revenue. In addition, a registered trade mark can be used as collateral for financing.


Another benefit of trade mark registration is that it can help to establish and maintain a business's brand identity. A registered trade mark can serve as a symbol of quality, consistency and reliability, which can help to build trust and loyalty among customers.


Trade mark registration can also have international benefits. By registering a trade mark in multiple countries, a business can protect its mark in those countries, and can also use the registration as a basis for obtaining registration in other countries.


In summary, trade mark registration can provide a number of benefits, including legal protection, potential revenue, brand identity, and international protection. It is important to register a trade mark as soon as possible to secure the rights to use it and to prevent others from using it without permission. Additionally, it is important to monitor and enforce the registered trade mark to maintain exclusive rights to it.

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
