Q. I need help from a trademark attorney
A: I could not get access to the USPTO files with the registration numbers you provided. be that as it may, your mark namely, contact is confusingly similar to con-tact. If you are in the same market space then there definitely is an issue. You should contact a trademark attorney to review the matter with. Good luck!
Q. Are we a true subsidiary? If not could we break away?
A: I agree with my colleagues that your issue being fact specific requires extensive document review to make a determination. For example, the entity may be a subsidiary, an affiliate or an associate. Accordingly, you should consult a lawyer to help you determine the status of your entity. Good luck.
Q. What does it mean when a trademark is abandoned? Like The Golden Girls here:
A: When a trademark is abandoned, the trademark owner may no longer claims rights to the trademark. In effect, the trademark reverts to the public domain and as a result is available to new users. Once a trademark is abandoned, no "good will" remains in the mark. As such, claim of residual good will may not be entertained.
