I created a product called "The Grip Strip", a polyurethane tape inserted into bowling ball holes for grip and fitting. My company is based off of this product. Another company registered the name "Grip Strips" for the same purpose. Is there anything I can do? Can I register mine as just "The Grip Strip" or Rowl Rite Grip Strip". What would you suggest?

Our trademark, Mental Trainer was recently canceled. We were not notified of any fee due or given any reason. Do you see a reason as we are interested in re-establishing the mark.

If merchants only register their brand name, will it cover its product design in that brand? Or they have to register their product design. Are they two separate issues?

Here's my question. Can someone trademark something that is in the public domain? For instance, Checkers. Now, I haven't checked to see if someone has already trademarked Checkers, but assuming they haven't, could someone trademark it? Or is that not allowed once the name is part of the public domain? What I envision is coming up with my own version of a game that is already in the public domain (say, checkers), along with my version of the rules, and I'm wondering if I could trademark it?

I just discovered a company is "REVIVED-AWAITING FURTHER ACTION" with the "Mark Name" I was planning to use for my new company, which I was told means their registration process is on-going. Assuming that company receives approval to trademark the name I want to use, can my new company name include part of their "Mark Name." For instance, if a mark name is GAMES, can I choose to trademark BABY GAMES? Is the entire word/phrase off limits because of a trademark?

Can I trademark a slogan with the names of two nfl players and the name of their city and team

In Can I Trademark it?    -  updated on 4/25/2016
I want to try and trademark a slogan before the nfl draft this thur april 28. I want to use the name of two la rams players and los angeles rams football. I am asking if this is even legal or are the domains on those names off limits. This slogan would be at risk since if the rams don't draft the player I have in the slogan and take the other guy then this won't fly. Can you please let me know what you think and If you say its ok I will file and pay for a trademark. thanks alex pachano
