guys I HAVE NEWS and i need some help from you people.

we got temporarily rejected, but not permanently rejected. evidently they need proof of "the mark" in commercial use. can someone send me whatever files we use to make the stickers or the hats or, ideally, the jerseys? or even some good photos of those products? i think if i submit some of that stuff, we should be good.

in other news, they didn't find any conflicting marks so once i do this part we should be good?

Quoted for new page.

I'll submit a pic of my hat if you need it.

There's a dozen of us at least that have in-use photos of stickers on bikes or hats or jerseys. Let's post 'em up.

ok so five months later, i finally submitted our response to the USPTO. thanks to everyone for the photos, vig and ergott's bikes AND LTF'S FACE are now part of public record at USPTO.
holy shit this process is arcane. i can see why more people don't do this.
i am pretty sure we will get approved this time. honestly i can't believe i filled that shit out correctly the first time!
if we get approved, we can take a poll (do polls still work on this website?) about what to do with the remaining $136.65 that sit in the Tarck Action Fund (TAF)

I like the idea of sending threatening letters and asking for a nominal license fee. (Nominal being like $0.01 for general use)

Nah, we want them to pay. It's about licensing it out rather than keeping it exclusive. We're not making money, so no point in getting greedy.

I have a lawyer that would find it funny but I think I'd be too embarrassed to even ask.

GUYS WE ARE NOT OFFICIAL YET
we don't have a reg number. the application hasn't been fully approved. no one send a cease and desist letter yet.
the only thing that website means is that we've staked our claim. we still have to actually BE approved.

i believe 5/3/2008 was the date of the bikeforums exodus, at least that's the best i could do based on memory. figured we'd memorialize it in perpetuity.
