DEADMAU5 ENTERS LEGAL BATTLE OVER “MEOWINGTONS” TRADEMARK
Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
That'd be quite a catfight. Problem is, deadmau5 can't convince USPTO to ignore a trademark previously registered by someone else. Even if he's in the right legally, USPTO must treat a registered trademark as valid—until and unless it's cancelled or abandoned. That is yet another demonstration for why registering your brand as a trademark early on is absolutely essential.
