Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Can I legally start a snow cone stand with a play on words and image theme from a classic TV show?
A: I recommend seeking advice from a trademark lawyer as the answer depends upon the specific name and use of your own name and the TV show name. Depending on the name, the TV show may come after you for trademark infringement. To give some background, trademark infringement for puns hinges on whether a rational consumer would mistakenly believe your products were sponsored by or affiliated with the owner of the IP of the TV show. The court will examine the text, font, pronunciation, context, marketing, etc.

For the images, you would need to receive licensing from the copyright owners to use.
Q. Can you restore my lost trademark for "abandonment"? I have been using this name for 60 years
A: Good afternoon,

It appears that your did not respond to an Office Action received on September 8, 2010, within the six month response period. Consequently, the USPTO sent you a "Notice of Abandonment." You had two months from the receipt of the Notice of Abandonment to file a "Petition to Revive Abandoned Application- Failure to Respond Timely to Office Action" form. Since a petition for revival was not submitted, you must file a new trademark application and restart the process.
