    Trademarks and anonymous

    Hi All,

    I was reading through law today and the subject of trademarks as I have to buy a trademark for a company.
    As I was reading through trademark law, it struck me that the C0$ next move might be to trademark anonymous and anonymous imagery, however this can be stopped with footage taken before their application, which uses all the imagery and anonymous - so don't delete files, or make a copy and hide it somewhere if worried about fair game.

    As long as it can be proved by dated information - that they don't own the trademark it is cool.

    I don't mean to worry anyone :)

    don't worry,
    if enough documentary evidence is available - they have no leg to stand on

    Most of it is borrowed from elsewhere, anyway. If they are stupid enough to try, we won't need to be the ones breathing down their necks.

    I was under the impression that trademark deals with business properties.

    Anonymous and whatever digital depictions is uses are not for commercial purposes. There is nothing to trademark. <shrug>

    I wouldn't worry about this. The CoS can't demonstrate that they're actually using the name or imagery as part of their organization.
