USPTO’s grant this week of a trademark registration for Ant-like Persistence reminds me of the trademark registration which we received a couple of years ago for a sound mark. Long-time members of the E-Trademarks listserv will recall this grant which happened about four years ago. We use this sound mark when we do webinars and audiovisual recordings.
You can see (or hear) many things about this registration.
- the registration certificate
- the sheet music which the Examining Attorney required us to provide
- the mark itself (sixteen seconds in duration, converted to an MP3 file)
- the specimen of use as filed (an MP3 file, about two minutes and 59 seconds in duration, 2.8 megabytes in size)
- the TSDR record
- the publication in the Official Gazette (note the seemingly endless verbal description of the mark)
- the electronic reproduction of the mark as filed (sixteen seconds in duration, WAV format, 2.7 megabytes in size)
- the music from which the mark is drawn (two minutes and forty seconds, MP3 format, 2.5 megabytes in size)
- examples of use of the mark
