You Can't Include the Term 'EBAY' In Your Trademark or Tradename


. . . unless you’re eBay. Incidental to doing a search, I noticed that there were a gazillion dead and soon to be dead trademark applications for businesses providing ancilliary services to eBay sellers (e.g. WE WILL SELL YOUR STUFF ON EBAY FOR YOU or JOE’S EBAY DROP SHOP). These applicants could possibly use these terms to truthfully describe their businesses, but they simply can’t own a trademark that incorporates the mark of another. Just trying to save you the $275 or $325.
