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?

 Complaint Big Al(function() { var scribd = document.createElement(“script”); scribd.type = “text/javascript”; scribd.async = true; scribd.src = “”; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(“script”)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(scribd, s); })();
