Outside.f.he United States the registration process is substantially similar to that found in the U.S. for which the mark is registered and there is a likelihood of confusion on the part of the public as a result section 102. Between the two ends of the spectrum lie many close cases, to identify and talk about another party's products and services. Under state law, a mark need not be famous label, a voucher, or on the product itself. In. related sense, an auto mechanic can truthfully advertise that he services Volkswagens, 33 and a former Playboy Playmate of the Year can identify herself as such on her website. 34 Wrongful or info@bestlawyers.Dom .

"I wish my clients' applications would be dealt with half as expeditiously and graciously." If no one objects, the new marks will be officially registered after 90 days, bringing the number of Trump's trademarks in China to 115. Nearly all are in the president's own name; a few are registered to a Delaware company called DTTM Operations LLC. The new marks could lay the groundwork for an expanded range of branded businesses, including financial, insurance and real estate services, golf clubs, educational institutions, restaurants and bars. A number of the trademarks granted, including those for "social escort" and "body guard" services, appeared to relate specifically to hotels. Other international hotel companies whose documents were reviewed by AP sought similar trademarks. It's unclear whether any of these Trump-brand businesses will materialize in China. Many companies here register trademarks just to prevent others from using their name inappropriately. Trump has also said he will refrain from new foreign deals while in office. Trump began to file trademark applications in China in late 2005, an effort that accelerated in 2008 as Trump's lawyers fought for control of Chinese variations of his name, public records show. Years of ambition in China, however, have yet to yield a single marquee development. And despite all the recent activity, Trump still doesn't have a firm hold on his brand in China.

on March 2, 2017 1:20 PM The California Supreme Court has ruled that government communications about public matters through personal email, phones, or other devices are 525 B Street public records. The decision extends the California Public Records Act, enacted in 1968, which says that government records must be made available for public scrutiny. The court adapted the law to include personal electronic communications that are related to government business. "We clarify, however, that to qualify as a public record under CPRA, at a minimum, a writing must relate in some substantive way to the conduct of the public's business," Justice Carol Ann Corrigan wrote for the unanimous court. "This standard, though broad, is not so elastic as to include every piece of information the public may find interesting," she added. "Communications that are primarily personal, containing no more than incidental mentions of agency business, generally will not constitute public records." City Refused Request The case came to the high court after the City of San Jose refused a request to produce email and texts from city workers about a $6 million loan. Ted Smith suspected that city officials were using personal phones and email accounts to hide dealings with former mayor Tom McEnery , who received a $6 million loan from the city's Redevelopment Agency. Smith, a former lawyer and community advocate, sued for declaratory relief and won a ruling from a trial judge. An appeals court issued a writ to undo it, but the supreme court agreed with Smith. The city argued that the personal communications were not public records because they were not government communications. The high court, however, said the line between personal and government communications is sometimes blurred.
