In any other cases, they would keep quiet, find suspicious ads on these sites, take reports, and conduct investigations. Prosecutors and LEOs would decline to say how they originally discovered suspects because it would harmfully reveal investigative techniques.
But theater is more important, and there is more theater on the front end here.
Part of the problem here is that if the USPTO will grant marks of this nature, they should all be fine if the marks are different. What happened to the days of many companies using the same popular or locale words in their names with no trouble at all?
I don't know, but i find people who are self-aggrandizing and immune to facts deserve some insults occasionally. You know, like in response to their bullshit after the facts (which must already be known to him anyway) are repeatedly pointed out.
Thank you. That is exactly the point, regardless what other pro-IP spin journals, Wall Street, or investors might be putting on this. The problem is yes, it can be used as a bludgeon. It can also suddenly walk away elsewhere, apparently like research and work, payment, and credit.
I don't know about ring around the collar. I couldn't be arsed to contact Whisk, and they probably fudge their stats anyway. So no, this is the insidious terror from which the nation has been distracted too long! Fire up the $17bn Pretreatment And Detergent budget. Deport the dirt.
In fact, the patent in question wasn't granted until 2014
Aw. Awwww. When a patent is granted is irrelevant. Not being patented does not stop anyone from innovation or implementation. (Or is it one of those mere suggestion "a method for" patents with no actual ... anything to it?) This is just a bad argument and contrary to what many around here would see as a reasonable view of patents. Although, for a lawyer... Not that in i would defend this foolish lawsuit in any way.
But it does show vehicle manufacturers could do more to prevent distracted driving.
Yeap, a congested evening rush hour highway in the dark of winter, thousands of cars running with hazard lights on. I can picture it now. Much less distracting.
