Leason Ellis Succeeds in UDRP Domain Name Arbitration2012 年 06 月 15 日
Leason Ellis obtained a final judgment in our case against USA Trademark Enterprises, Inc. of Sarasota, Florida. Although USA Trademark denied wrongdoing or liability, the judgment permanently enjoined it from selling its trademark catalog again. It also barred the company from ever engaging in trademark or intellectual property-related activities in the United States. The Complaint had alleged that defendants had engaged in false advertising and unfair competition by marketing a catalog of trademark registrations, which offered no commercial value as the published information is freely available in the online records of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The Complaint further alleged that defendants were confusing consumers into believing that the catalog was legitimate by sending unsolicited notices designed to make it appear as though USA Trademark Enterprises was an official government enterprise.
