What is a Trademark ?
A trademark is quite different from either a copyright or a patent. A trademark is any word, name, symbol ordevice, or any combination thereof, that serves to identify and distinguish the source of one party's goods or services from those of another party. A service mark is the same as a trademark, except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of services rather than goods. In this report, the terms "trademark" and "mark" are intended to refer to both types of marks
What is trademark infringement?
Trademark infringement is the interference with or violation of another party’s trademark rights through the unauthorized use of that party’s mark or a confusingly similar mark. The basic test for trademark infringement is whether the use of a trademark by one party is such that it can create a dilution of the marks distinctiveness and the likelihood of confusion among consumers in the relevant marketplace ( the relevant market place includes Internet Advertising) in relation to an identical or similar trademark belonging to another party. A trademark does not have to be an exact copy of another mark in order to be considered infringing.
The most common standards for infringement are:
(a) close similarity of a mark and its associated goods and/or services to a established mark and its associated goods and/or services; or/and
(b) use of a mark that creates a likelihood of confusion, in the course of trade, with a established mark among potential consumers.
(See "Federal Trademark Dilution Revision Act of 2006" below)
Notification of a Trademark or Copyright Infringement
If you received a Notification of a Trademark or Copyright Infringement from us and your intent is anything other than the immediate and complete removal, deletion and destruction of the infringing uses of our Trademark Marks or Copyright material then it is strongly recommended that you seek not just any Attorney but the appropriate Trademark or Copyright Attorney for advice.
There are Attorneys and then there are Trademark Attorneys and Copyright Attorneys.
We are not Attorney's so we will not debate with you your interpretations of Trademark or Copyright Law.
That is why we have and seek the advice of Trademark and Copyright Attorneys to help us protect our Intellectual Property. We suggest you acquire the appropriate attorney also if your intent is anything other than respecting our Intellectual Property Owner Rights.
The Federal Trademark Dilution Revision Act of 2006 expanded the scope of rights granted to distinctive trademarks and famous marks under the Lanham Act. Dilution differs from normal trademark infringement in that there is no need to prove a likelihood of confusion to protect a mark. Instead, all that is required is that use of a "distinctive mark or famous mark" by a third party causes the dilution of the "distinctive quality" of the mark.
SEC. 2. DILUTION BY BLURRING; DILUTION BY TARNISHMENT.
Section 43 of the Trademark Act of 1946 (15 U.S.C. 1125) is amended
(1) by striking subsection (c) and inserting the following:
(c) DILUTION BY BLURRING; DILUTION BY TARNISHMENT.
(1) INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. Subject to the principles of equity,
the owner of a famous mark that is distinctive, inherently
or through acquired distinctiveness, shall be entitled to an
injunction against another person who, at any time after the
owners mark has become famous, commences use of a mark
or trade name in commerce that is likely to cause dilution
by blurring or dilution by tarnishment of the famous mark,
regardless of the presence or absence of actual or likely confusion,
of competition, or of actual economic injury.

YUPPIE PUPPY STUDIOS trade/service/certification word marks.

2. First reference in text to all YUPPIE PUPPY STUDIOS trade/service/certification "word" mark names should be followed by the proper trade/service/certification mark symbol. The proper symbol for registered trade/service/certification word marks is ® (R - with a circle around it).
The proper symbol for trade/service/certification word mark names which are the subject of pending PTO registration applications or are used in accordance with common law trademark principles is - TM or SM.
