    Re: It is a license to sue!

    In a slightly better world... Why isn't that way now? Is it down deep in the legal marshes?

    thanks there Scary Devil. Unfortunately it appears the whole of us are in for tough times. May your God, deity, light, nature, family, and peacefulness be with you and yours.

    Re: Re: Kovid Kare

    Hiya Wendy.
    Well, that was what I was thinking. If I could get the names and phrases into use with a website that actually promoted their use, then by the time the trademarks came about... then maybe just maybe they'd be only to protect the misuse of the terms. Given my share of physical disabilities, the environmentally conditioning to cover up when sticks and stones come flying 'is strong in this one'. Hoping the trademarks would help keep the inner core straight by having a stronger legal case.
    So, with what you're saying; you recommend, I actively cancel the trademarks submitted? If the idea is going nowhere, then I don't want to block anyone else's use of information.

    Re: Re: Kovid Kare

    Guarantee? What's guarantee? Does that guarantee have anything to do with the half-dozen $1500.00 trademark publications agreement letters I just received from WTP? Got a good shake of learning disabilities. Reading is very difficult.
    This whole KOVIDKARE and trademarks just showed up in my head one night at the same time. It was like having dinner with my beloved wife, Salma Hayek and Scarlett Johansson. Yea, everything's great, but where do i look? I'm sure not asking for the bread rolls in the middle of the table.

    I think the phrase 'viral news' , 'viral video', etc. will disappear. And I think David's logic is right. So yea, bad joke better not said. but you said in a way that says to us, you seem normal and deserving of a response which may end up being a pleasurable experience for both of us.
    So, yea, that was like a stinkbug up the emotional nostril.

    Re: Re: Re: Re: To be fair…

    Reading your/our thread is like a watching a game, a match. The phrase is like a ball made of words but full of emotion. Each reply is a reply. You're sending an emotional ball back and forth using words. It can only be replied to using words, but again, it's the inside that counts. It splatters all over the opponent and they must reply with words once again. Yes?

    Endgame is 'no reply and cease', 'concede and cease'. Don't think they're are any other choices. In concession, you're still throwing water, but you both like it.

    Re: Re: Good Points

    Alright Mike (and others),
    Here i think is a useful place to start: People misspell all the time. Let their misspelling lead them to KovidKare, A site providing links to legitimate sources of information. Information that is presented in a clear and well informed manner. Best is information designed specifically to calm and reassure those suffering the anxieties and realities of the virus. And Links to non-profits; their funds and services. Maybe Even a social engine (much later).
    Will start there.

    Re: Re: Good Points

    yes, let me look at funding. And non-aggressive is better. Done with the trademarks. Except hope I get the one for my own company. Correct me if I'm wrong but that one seems to be useful without waving a financial cane at anyone.

    Good Points

    All good points TOG. Will have to really think about what what niche I can fill and create a business plan. Thank you for the financial advice as well. I'm a developer by trade, so while being deeply in debt (like we all are), If i can stop the medical bills and start working again I have a way of climbing out. It just LOOKS real sucky from this point of view. We've all been there.

    Bergman, what I did find out in my effort is you can't trademark real medical terms, societal phrases, or events that are common knowledge to the general public. The liable for economic damage would be a motivation killer if that were the case.

    The Mob

    ..I feel like Dr. Frankenstein in front of a pitchfork parade asking for ideas. But of all the people in the world, you are just the ones whom I can ask for help. I need a better focus with Kovid Kare that does not dehumanize those impacted by the virus. Initially, I thought Kovid Kare would be great for kids, to protect and keep them aware. Educate them and provide direction.
    . ...Thought that would be a good focus... then the mania sent me whirling off into trademark land where i crumpled so spectacularly, and so offensively, you all noticed.

    Kovid Kare

    Kovid Kare is mine. I recently went on disability (70%) pay after being diagnosed with complex PTSD and possibly bipolar (still figuring it out). Trying to support the family. The idea was to make those slogans into actual signs to help people in medical facilities, schools, hospitals. Signs like, 'Please, Viruses are everywhere... [helpful actions]'. I wanted to make slogans on shirts for kids. Reading material for adults who survive the virus.

    You know how different it is to recover by the compassionate than the unconcerned. Compassion and earnest understanding is crucial to our recovery. We are less anxious in recovery. We listen to those we trust. We go further for those who know our pain. We are willing to live again for those who understand us. I tried to make them into article themes, booklets on dealing with loss, slogans that assist; Invitations to life. Wings not walls. That's what I was trying.

    But with the mania gone, I am struggling again. I received my first official letter of rejection for my first trademark. I think I did them all wrong.

    I was sitting here thinking; trying to find how Kovid Kare could help and make money. I looked up my company name and saw your editorial. Yes, it does look opportunistic, because it was opportunistic. But hopefully not greedy. Just broke. In debt, medical bills, three girls nearly all out of the house, but still costing me what I do not have.

    Trying to save the house for the wife. Need a source of income when the PTSD or Bipolar inhibit working. Need to pay the mortgage. Second time out on disability in a year. So, yes, as one of the bad guys, I will change. Trademark death sentence had a point.

    If you gang have any better idea of how I can provide helpful content, then I am all ears.
