I was quoted in today's Washington Post about a local trademark 'squatter' who is trying to #trademark potential new names for the Washington Redskins. An interesting read!

+Staples has filed a #trademark opposition against the maker of an e-cigarette that wants to name its product STAPLE.   Interesting.  Would you think of the office superstore when bumming that STAPLE e-cig?

#Redbull  has filed a formal opposition to a trademark application for 'OLD OX BREWERY' (for a brand of beer) claiming that consumers may think bulls and oxes are related.  Would you?
