I'm going to have a friend upstairs see if she can tell me how much to register a logo/name just in case I ever get famous for my brew.
doubtfull but hell, who knows.. i might be able to suit someone for infringeing on my logo.
You know what Bass should totally sue this bar down the street from me for trademark infringement. They have a big red triangle outside and they don't even serve Bass. Apparently the neon triangle is how they identify the bar, the building has no name or anything. As I was walking by I figured "Wow I had no idea this place was here, they look like a bar, and they serve Bass, probably a nice irish place I should stop in..."
So I walked in and they don't even serve Bass, it was a total BMC place with lots of mixed drinks. Additionally the place was just full of the butchest looking women I have ever seen and they all glared at me for some reason, like I wasn't supposed to be in there... I don't think it will be staying in buisness long anyway with ugly unfriendly women like that frequenting the place they will have no luck attracting a decent mixed drink clientel.
Anyway, long story short, that place is totally infringing on Bass's trademark, and they should do something about it, or at least get this place to serve Bass.
