More "Trademark" issues



Jay, Something to the same effect was stated in one of the earliest writings known to exist. Can't put my finger on exactly who it was at the moment. Apparently civilization has been going to hell in a hand basket ever since it started. Another ancient text almost as old expressed concern that Model Railroading was a dieing hobby. Bruce

No. The Clerk of Court should be licensed to shoot-to-kill the lawyers who file those suits. OK, OK maybe that's too extreme. I take it back. Howz'bout if they just get disbarred for life, with a limit of ONE appeal? Disbarment would be in effect until the appeal was heard. I can go with that.
IMO, unless you can get inside and fly it through the air under its own power it isn't an airplane, it's a model of an airplane. Boeing builds airplanes, not model airplanes. There can be no confusion or competition in these cases. Not only that, but Boeing DOES NOT BUILD, HAS NOT BUILT for 60 years, and WILL NOT build, a real B-17 for any reason. So WTF do they care if B. Douglas Wudjabitemie sells models of B-17s or 747s or DC-3s. This thing is out of control. Froggy,

Wonder how the argument might go, at least with modern era airplanes, that the US taxpayers paid for the R&D and end products produced so why should those among the taxpayers who build model airplanes get gouged a second time with added fees?

Unless the Defense Department included a specific provision in the contract which prevented the Contractor from licensing their design, the argument won't hold water. The Contractor owns the design.

I thought congress just passed a law that prevents any DOD purchased items from being licensed again. Or has it not gone through yet?

It's in a bill for next year's defense spending. Do a Google search on "H.R.1815" and look at section 820 of the bill.
Regardless, this would only affect future production.

Which marks do you believe the UP "owns"? (Hint: They claim to "own" the names and logos of 1800 predecessor railroads, but they can't name them -- can you?)
Of the marks that the UP claims to "own", which marks do you believe they've registered with the Trademark Office?
Of those, which marks do you believe specify use on model trains, as required by the Trademark Office?
Of those, which marks do you believe the UP actually uses when it designs, produces or sells model trains?
How many modelers do you know who think their model locomotives and rolling stock are designed, produced or sold by the UP?

They bought them; they own them. Why do so many of you hate the idea of property rights?

Why do so many of you hate the idea of property rights?< Not sure what your idea of "bought them" is but Trademarks are not bought but created. Also they have nothing in common with "property rights" such as owning a house or land. I would suggest reading about the law. All of the current problems are created by to many lawyers in this society. We should decimate them. Actually that wouldn't help either, what's the word for every third one?

Lawyers merely respond to the demands for their services. A lawyer's duty is to represent his or her client. If people didn't want to use the law to screw each other, lawyers would have very little to do. So blame the clients.

You evidently are not a student of Shakespeare. The full story as told by Shakespeare was that some folks were discussing assassinating the king. In contemplating the likelihood of success one of them muses that in order to get away with it and reap the benefits they would "first have to get rid of all the lawyers." (The lawyers would not recognize anything derived from the act as legal). It is interesting that the very inaccurate modern usage is to turn it 180 degrees into a slur upon lawyers.

degrees into a slur upon lawyers.< In the book "how to avoid probate" there is a statement in the front that states, looking at every (violent) revolution, the judges and lawyers are hung first. I have never studied the history of this but the man who wrote the book was a lawyer<VBG>.

See if you can find a book from about 30 years ago called "The Screwing of the Average Man". I'm not sure if the author was a lawyer* or not, but one thing for sure - he wasn't a title insurance parasite!
* the book makes an excellent case that probate serves as "welfare for bottom rung lawyers"
