TRADE NAME AND TRADEMARK SYMBOL COPY (TATCP) The TATCP is an acronym for “Transportation, Automobile and Transportation Equipment and Services Copyright Infringement Act.”
It gives the government authority to stop an individual or company from using another’s mark or trademark in a way that might be perceived as infringing.
If the use is likely to be harmful to competition, the government can take legal action to prevent the use.
Trademark infringement can be hard to prove.
The U.S. government has been accused of doing just that in recent years.
The most famous case involved the case of Michael Lewis and company, who sued Sony for using his image on the Sony Walkman.
The Justice Department won that case, saying it was clear that Sony had a copyright infringement claim against Lewis.
However, in a landmark decision in 2009, the Supreme Court ruled that the government had to prove that the use was likely to cause harm.
Trademarks can also be used in a commercial context, as long as they are not being used for the purpose of misleading consumers.
The government has no power to stop use of a trademark to trademark an automobile or other product, but it can stop the use of that trademark to mark a movie.
That is the case for the movie poster logo for the 2009 hit movie The Matrix.
The movie was a $1.9 billion blockbuster.
The posters were part of a movie poster contest.
That was a huge deal for Sony.
The company was trying to get more publicity for its new movie, and the movie posters were a big part of that.
The Supreme Court struck down a key part of the contest’s rules in 2011, saying the movie contest rules were vague and didn’t require a person to prove they were being deceived.
Tradenames are also protected by trademark laws in the United States.
Trades have special rights under trademark law.
For example, a trademark that gives you permission to sell a product or service is considered a trademark, but a trademark does not give you permission for people to use it to trademark your name.
A person may sell a trademark for a purpose that would not otherwise be permitted under the trademark.
