01 Jun The Golden Knights are one action more detailed to protecting the Stanley Cup and Federal Hallmark Registration
This hockey season, the Las Vegas Golden Knights have actually been battling to develop their name in the National Hockey League … and with the United States Patent and Hallmark Workplace (USPTO). If you have no concept exactly what I’m speaking about, take a look at my post from January about “The Fight Over the “Golden Knights.”
The Golden Knights have actually had an amazing inaugural season and have actually fought their method into the Stanley Cup Final– where they are presently incorporated the series with the Washington Capitals 1-1. The Golden Knights have actually currently made history as being just the 3rd group in NHL history to win several playoff series in their inaugural season– however they definitely do not wish to stop there. Vegas is hoping its luck will assist the Golden Knights end up being the very first growth group to ever win the Stanley Cup in its very first season.
The group’s streak of success pleads one to question … will the Golden Knight’s luck continue off the ice?
As previously discussed, both the College of Saint Rose and the United States Department of Army disagreed with the Las Vegas Golden Knights’ hallmark applications. The College of Saint Rose feared confusion with its prior-registered mark for GOLDEN KNIGHTS THE COLLEGE OF SAINT ROSE. The Army feared confusion with its parachute group, nicknamed the “Golden Knights”.
The Army submitted its official notice of opposition versus the Golden Knights on January 10,2018 The marks at problem are LAS VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS (Serial No. 87147269) and VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS (Serial No. 87147239).
The College of Saint Rose asked for an extension of time where to submit an official notification of opposition to the Golden Knights’ hallmark application( s) back on January 8,2018 The TTAB provided the College an extension through March 11, 2018 to oppose the marks. Nevertheless, remarkably, the College of Saint Rose never ever submitted an official opposition.
With the College of Saint Rose out of the method, the Army is the last barrier standing in between the Golden Knights and a federal hallmark registration. The most recent filing with the TTAB suggests that procedures have actually been suspended through June 23,2018 Inning accordance with numerous sources, the celebrations have actually shown that they are participated in a series of settlements regarding a co-existence contract– which would enable both celebrations to utilize the mark “Golden Knights” within their particular worlds.
Will the Golden Knights have the ability to win this off-the-ice series? Just time will inform. Stay tuned for more updates!
P.S. Now that the Nashville Predators have actually been removed, I do not have a canine in the Stanley Cup battle and am not pulling for one group over the other. The Golden Knights have previous Nashville Predator James Neal, and the Capitals are led by none besides Barry Trotz, who coached the Predators throughout their very first 15 seasons. If the Preds cannot win the Stanley Cup– then a minimum of a group with Nashville ties can!
