I know the remedies available to me when someone impersonates my domain name, content, website URL, etc.

My question is whether the same, similar or analogous causes of action exist when that someone also impersonates me by registering my personal name and domain name with the email providers, too? For example, [my domain name] @ gmail, yahoo, etc.

Trademarking a person

Trademarking a person's name.

In Trademark Disputes    -  updated on 11/11/2009
I was involved in US Federal fraud lawsuit with a public figure. It was dismissed. Since then, the public figure has trademarked his first and last name together "First Last". If I start an internet gripe site and discuss my opinion and the truth and the facts of my story about what happened with this person, will I be damaging his trademark?  Can he trademark his personal name and then claim business interference or damage while I am within my 1st amendment rights in the US?

I would appreciate any thoughts and opinions on my post.

First, is it possible and what general cost might it be to sit down with an IP attorney to review a case with me. I take my created materials in for review and the competitors materials and have the attorney provide me with their expert advice as to whether I?m infringing on someone rights.

The following case is obvious made up but close enough in careful ways that feedback will be useful.

Second, let?s say NoPoop ...

City of Branson lawyer does not need a trademark?

In Can I Trademark it?    -  updated on 11/11/2009
The lawyer hired by the city of Branson had to explain his strategy at a alderman meeting. It turns out if you are trying to protect a name in a geographical area ? like the name Branson? all you have to do is threaten or evaluate any business that is using the name and is less then two years old. The threat is unclear if the business fails the evaluation but it would be assumed they would threaten a law suit ?as in the past? backed with tax payer money. So the belief is that if this threat g...

In Trademark Registration    -  updated on 11/11/2009
Can I get a US trademark for a service that I deliver as a sole proprietor, e.g. a matchmaking or plumbing service? I understand that some services "delivered personally" such as singing cannot be trademarked - is this an exception to the rule?

Thanks.

Hi,
I would like to register a .com domain for my informative blog about wine. The name choosen is a latin word expressing the essence of my site.

Unfortunately I've just discovered that a famous international designer has a last name very similar to the word I choose (only one letter differ). He registered his name at the US Trademark Office with other words ("Mr Smith's Super Design Studio").

Of course we operate in very different industries without any likelihood...

Would it be a trademark infringement if you refer to a trademark as part of the lyrics of a song? For example, the lyrics would be "She knocks me off my feet, walking down the hall in her Victoria Secrets outfit.... ( just an example ).

Can I sell and profit from tshirts that use a person's name?  

We have an athlete at our college that will be making a viable candiate for the heisman trophy.  Could I sell "[player's name] for heisman" tshirts for profit without worry of legal action being taken against me?

Apparently the word heisman is not trademarked, only the logo and symbol, so can I use his name and the word heisman in the phrase "[name] for heisman" or something similar with...

Can I personalize my trademarked Tshirts at my LLC ? for example , several friends wanted their name(s) put on the front of their "Sassy Assd" Tshirt (my trademark logo) under the words "Sassy Assd" girl and then the Words "Sassy Assd" bigger on the back. I already did it for these 4 ladies and they bought them, I just want to know if that is breaking any law with my trademark ? It wouldnt be anything that wasnt a name or pertaining to the term Sassy Assd. Thank you. Respectfully, Ken Stinson
