Hey Mike, Do you really think I care if it is a military school or a Zoo. They have trademarks on phrases in common usage, they are not entitled to them and like the Military they so fondly emulate they use bully boy tactics to try and maintains their silly and illegal trademarks. So there you go. I consider their trademarks an abuse of a sadly abused system. Let them litigate to their hearts content.
It is typical of courts in general and higher courts in particular. They have no idea, are presided over by people who should be in a retirement home due to their forgetfulness and usually completely technophobic.
The unfortunate truth of most of the worlds legal system is those deciding are deciding using the morality of several generation ago and the fiscal resources of the elite. They are unchallengeable for the most part (judicial independence) and have no liability for the quality of their decisions. The system does not really care if 100% of their decisions are overturned on appeal. Add to that governments who would like to pretend they don't understand (plausible deniability) and bureaucracies that traditionally have worked on regulation, not action and this is what you get. They don't need security... they have made a rule about security. Problem solved.
As the cricket fraternity will espouse the 12th man has been in regular use in that game for longer than the colonial A & M has existed. So I suggest that they forget their precarious trademark. I am no trade mark layer, but letting these guys have that is like letting Microsoft trade mark windows. It is a big world, and it is time the US trademark office expanded it's scope, and stopped these stupid trade marking of pre existing terms.
America... do we mean North or South? When I went to school there were these big continental masses called North and South America. On the northern continent there was this country that occupies less than half of it called the United States of America. The residents of this country for reasons only understood by them appear to constantly appropriate the continental name as their Nationality. I am not sure if it is poor education, laziness or conceit. They also have some other remarkable statistics in their country.
They are home to the NRA, as terrorist organisations go, I have seen those loonies interviewed,they frighten me far more than any Muslim Jihad. AND they are the Stereotypical US citizen rabid, ignorant and incapable of logical argument. If in doubt listen to there guys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZb8EXUrQTo Dave Keene does not even know his nationality.
Just be sure when sending snail mail to the York state that you don't use part of their copyright when you address the mail. Or is the postal service paying copyright fees of some sort for each letter processed.
Can he be charged with those "offences"? While it may be dishonest, is there a law against using more than one name at once?
Using your logic you are a fraudster. You are here using a false name. I am pretty sure your mother did not name you "horse with no name". So now your guilty of fraud it would be Ok for your laptop to the hacked to look for other evidence against you.
