Viva Las Vegas

I've got Vegas on the brain as I'll be heading out that way tomorrow. As a result, the blog posts won't be happening again until next week when I come back, hopefully with a little more jingle jangle in my pockets.

So I thought I'd use Las Vegas as an inspiration point to check out some of the more interesting Vegas-tinged trademarks:

Dave's Fabulous Las Vegas Barbecue Sauce
. The logo is a take off on the famous Las Vegas sign.

Erotic Suite Palms Las Vegas. The suite features a dancer's pole, a round bed & a $4000 per night cost.

What happens in VEGAS...Ends up on the Internet...
is currently being opposed by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority based on their filing of What Happens Here, Stays Here, which is suspended pending the disposition of What Happens in Vegas Does Not Always Stay in Vegas & 2 marks for What Happens Here, Stays Here, which is the LV Convention & Visitors Authority mark.

Looking further into these marks is a bit like Alice falling into the rabbit hole:

What Happens in VEGAS...Ends up on the Internet is being opposed by What Happens Here, Stays Here, which is suspended pending the outcome of their other filing for What Happens Here, Stays Here, which is suspended pending the outcome of What Happens in Vegas Does Not Always Stay in Vegas AND their 2 other marks for What Happens Here, Stays Here, which is suspending pending the outcome of What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas, which is currently being opposed by...dun dun dun the owner of What Happens Here, Stays Here. PHEW, get all that?

Trademark 101: State Trademark or Federal Trademark?

Now that you know what a trademark is, what a trademark isn’t, and that you should get a trademark, let’s explore if a State trademark or Federal trademark is most appropriate for your needs.
For the USA, trademarks can be obtained either at the State level or the Federal level. So, which do you need? I’ll explain both and that’ll give you a clearer picture as where to go from here.
First and foremost, a State trademark gives you trademark protection for that specific state whereas a Federal trademark gives you trademark protection nationwide. Simple enough, yes? But, which is the right trademark for your needs?
1)Are you actively in business? 2)Are you only doing business in one city or county or just statewide?
If you answered yes to both, then exploring a State trademark is your next step. Here are some advantages to a State trademark:
·The right to expand statewide. The name will be waiting for you in other metros. ·If another mark is infringing upon yours within the state, you’ll have a…

Beware of Official-y Correspondence

Once you get that trademark filed be aware that your information is of public record, which means, unfortunately, some will mine that resource & some of those folks will send you solicitations. 
These solicitations often look very official, and "may use names that resemble the USPTO name, including, for example, one or more of the terms "United States," “U.S.,” "Trademark," "Patent," "Registration," "Office," or "Agency."  
Some will even have documents that resemble actual government documents rather than what you'd expect a company to send and this is often done by "emphasizing official government data like the USPTO application serial number, the registration number, the International Class(es), filing dates, and other information that is publicly available from USPTO records."
Most of these are asking you for money. That's your major warning flag.
"All official correspondence will be from the …
