The Change Message


President Barack Obama's message of change has been a constant since he announced his candidacy on the steps of the Old State Capitol building in Springfield, IL. And on January 20, 2009 a huge change in the face of politics happened.

The President's theme has inspired folks all around the world. It's even made it's way into the world of trademarks.


A mere 2 days after the inauguration, 562 Media Inc., a marketing and design firm, filed for
MakeAChange.org, which will be "a website that gives users the ability to make donations for charity"

And just yesterday, 3 more applications were filed using change as a central word in their marks.

Erasoul Enterprise filed for Embrace Change in 3 different classes, namely, the jewelry, houseware and clothing classes.

Dreams for Kids Inc, a children's charity, filed for We Are the Change, which is a youth leadership program.

Hubbell Inc, the international manufacturer, filed for CreateChange for "energy efficient lighting information services."

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."
