Trademark

Today, May 30, 2013 will be marked as a milestone in FOBANA history. Today US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) had received our Combined Declaration of Use and Incontestability under Section 8 and 15. Therefore as of today, NO ONE can contest FOBANA name for next 10 years. After that we need to renew the Trademark for another 10 years and so on.

WHAT IS AN "INCONTESTABLE" REGISTRATION?

An "incontestable" registration is conclusive evidence of the validity of the registered mark, of the registration of the mark, of the owner's ownership of the mark and of the owner's exclusive right to use the mark with the goods/services. The claim of incontestability is subject to certain limited exceptions set forth in §§15 and 33(b) of the Trademark Act, 15 U.S.C. §§1065 and 1115(b).
