Our firm, Leason Ellis, obtained a final consent agreement against USA Trademark Enterprises of Florida and Timea Csikos and Andras Nemeth (residents of Hungary), permanently enjoining the defendants from selling a catalog of trademark registrations. LE had alleged that defendants had engaged in false advertising and unfair competition by marketing the catalog to trademark registrants. The defendants denied wrong-doing or liability, nevertheless all defendants are now barred from engaging in intellectual property-related activities in the US.
LE has received a payment from USA Trademarks of $10,000, which will be donated to the US Trademark Office, with the hope that it will be used to further the PTO’s efforts to educate trademark owners with regard to activities such as those enjoined here.
We received a copy of said catalog, which will be raffled off at next year’s Meet The Bloggers in Dallas
