Re: Patent vs Trade Mark
In Response To: Re: Patent vs Trade Mark ()

I don't think any manufacturers copyright their model names. Like Nordcapp, Arluk, Gulfstream, and on and on. It seems there's a gentlemen's agreement of first come first served.

I can't repeat the details (given to me in a private communication) but I was told there was/is a commercial company who not only 'splashed a mold' from another commercial kayak (i.e. made an exact copy) but also used the same logo!
So not all are gentlemen in any business, I guess!
