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 International Class: Class 35 (Advertising and Business Services)
All goods or services are categorized within International Classes (IC hereafter). Goods run from classes IC 1-34, while Services are in IC 35-45. Please see a complete chart here. Let's take a closer look at one of these trademark classes – class 35.

What is International Class 35 All About?

Each class has a short title heading that gives a snapshot of what that class is all about -- IC 35's short title is advertising and business services. Pretty vague, eh? The USPTO has 1476 accepted descriptions that fit into IC 35; check them out here.

The first part of IC 35’s description, advertising, is straightforward. If it’s advertising, marketing or promoting services that are being offered, then IC 35 is where it goes. Now there are going to be some exceptions, as with anything related to trademarks.
Tangible advertising goods, such as signs, flyers, brochures, are NOT going to be in IC 35 as those items are n…

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…

Trademark 101: Should You Trademark?

Now that we know what a trademark is and is not, let’s dive into the next logical question: should you trademark?
The easiest way to answer this question is to look at your business and your plans for it.
-Is the name, logo, or slogan an integral part of your business? -Are you doing business on a statewide or nationwide or international level? If you’re only doing business citywide or countywide, do you see potential for geographical growth? -Would another business in your industry using the same or similar name hurt your business? In other words, is it possible you’d lose customers if someone had the same or similar name in your industry?
If you answered yes to any of the above then exploring a trademark is the way to go.
Here’s what a US Federal trademark gives you:
·A legal presumption of your ownership of the mark and your exclusive right to use the mark nationwide on or in connection with the goods/services listed in the registration (whereas a state registration only provides rights…
