In response to the note referencing copyright and trademark of Deerdope:

-If you do your homework on digital internet registration, you will find you do not have to make a formal registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office until which time as a dispute of infringement is contested. It states Quote:

1.Is registration of my mark required? No. You can establish rights in a mark based on legitimate use of the mark.

2.When can I use the trademark symbols TM, SM and ®? Any time you claim rights in a mark, you may use the "TM" (trademark) or "SM" (service mark) designation to alert the public to your claim, regardless of whether you have filed an application with the USPTO.

3.Copyright and trademark rights can be established from the date of first usage. If anyone uses your trademark to the detriment of your business or for their own gain, you may be able to recover damages.

  • Deerdope was established:

-1997 as the keyword for

-1998 as the web site

-1999 to present- As the Keyword:Deerdope for the new web site

We have tried to avoid a formal lawsuit by just requesting the discontinued use of our trademark. However, we will file a formal lawsuit if needed. At that time, damages, as well as, all past sales of your product using our name will become an issue. We hope you give this serious consideration.

  • You are correct; but, you must first establish rights based on legitimate use of the mark, having the word as a keyword does now qualify as legitimate use of the mark. The fact that you talked about the DMCA (nothing to do with Trademarks) and talked about a "formal Lawsuit" even though since you have no registered trademark you cant sue; shows you don't understand the legal proceedings.--Simon | talk 18:48, 12 July 2007 (PDT)
