Subject: HOW DO I USE A TRADEMARK PROPERLY?

Message:
 

 
I truly believe the root of all problems is with ICANN and their corrupt symbiotic type relationship with various interests.

The Department of Commerce are deeply involved.

The DoC deny all businesses the right to use their trademarks on the Internet - they know the simple answer.

They only have to introduce .REG

HOW DO I USE A TRADEMARK PROPERLY?
Proper use of a trademark is essential for its continued protection.

The (commonly pronounced R-in-a-circle or Circle-R), as well as the legend "Registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office" or its abbreviation "Reg. U.S. Pat. & Tm. Off." are warning notices to advice the public that the mark is federally registered and their use provides legal benefits. This notice can be used only with registered marks. Use of a with any unregistered trademark may result in claims of fraud.
