First, go here and check out the jingle. 10 stacks or better better. This is in my head for the rest of the day.
OK, Florida law firm Carner Barzaky owns a federal reg. for the mark BIG AL for legal services (apparently personal injury law). Plaintiff spends $100k advertising and asserts that the mark has been found to be famous. Para 13. Defendant allegedly advertises BIG AL BOND SERVICES.
I was originally going to blog solely because I’ve never seen a case concerning bail bond services (the sort of local word-of-mouth business that is not traditionally brand-oriented). Then I saw para 22 that claims that plaintiff licenses the mark nationally, and a light bulb went on. I have to license the THE TRADEMARK BLOG mark. But how?
