大问题!被告商标侵权

接到对方的邮件通知,告诉我侵权了...
我使用的软件名与其注册的商标confusingly similar,即相似.要求我改名..

天哪,各位有没有人遇过.对这种事该怎么处理?any idea?

我目前想先放几天,看他接下来有什么反映再说.如果最终软件真被各服务器商给删除了,那对软件打击也蛮大的.那就要重新推广了....郁闷

不知道。怎么什么词都是商标?

把这篇英文抄下,以后吓唬别人去。

软件名和商标相似而造成侵权?他们的商标是 NewSoftwares,可你的软件名称会叫做 NewSoftware 吗?

补充:哦哦,我知道了,他们是注册了另外一个称呼不一样的商标。
改名吧, 没什么好说的
还真的是什么都能被注册成商标啊

Folder Protect 这样的词被注册成商标一不留神就锓权了,要真注册才能唬人
大家顺着网站去看吧, 人家拥有的tm还真多, 很多都是通用的词组.

Order多多, Support少少.
想问问怎么在美国注册商标?  有代理没?

注意了一下
Mark Drawing Code         (3) DESIGN PLUS WORDS, LETTERS, AND/OR NUMBERS
有些是  (4) STANDARD CHARACTER MARK
(已经取代 (1) TYPED DRAWING)
好像 (3)的覆盖类型比 (4)更多,不仅包括design,还包括单词本身。所以一般律师会建议申请商标时如果有logo的话就加上去。

A TM registration does not give substantive TM rights.  Those rights arise from use.  Therefore, even if the federal registration did not cover the words, strictly speaking, the other party might still have rights in the words based on their use of the words in the real world.

A registration of a logo that includes words often covers sufficiently the words alone.  The more prominent the words are in the logo, the more protection the registration provides for the words separate and apart from the logo, generally speaking.

Folder Lock啊,不用理他们,他们成天到处发,告诉说什么软件名他们注册了专利,没人理他们的.
让他们提供商标版权原始文件原文件或者数码相机拍摄的文件,以邮寄方式或者传真过来,不管他也不要紧,主机商或者GOOGLE会让他们提供的。
马甲1号粉丝会二期会员!!!
别理他
问他备案了么?
告诉他们,看不懂,用中文发
聪明出于勤奋,天才出于积累
“Folder Lock啊,不用理他们,他们成天到处发,告诉说什么软件名他们注册了专利,没人理他们的.”
这句话可信么?

实话说吧,这是我第二次收到他们的邮件了。上一次是在08年的6月,也就是我初涉国外市场,那时才发布没久他就告诉我名称类似侵权。于是我改名了。

这个老东西,居然把很多通用的名称注册成商标!!!真是太有才了,Folder Lock, Folder Protect...等
这才过一年多,又告诉我侵权。。。

我想,是否要找个时间去注册商标。我问过国内的商标代理商,开价是1000美元。不知要否续费。还是永久价。

如果不理这封邮件,真不知后果有没有他说的那么严重。

主啊,拯救我吧。。^_^
1000美元的成本来敲诈,貌似很高啊。今天才知道原来通用词也可以商标。
净找些通用词来注册商标,实在是服了这个印度阿三了!
听从大家的建议,先不理他了
