[wg-b] RE: (wg-b) What WG-B is supposed to be doing (RE: Arbitra
This is more than a hint -- this a a fact: We own multiple federal
registrations for the BELL trademark. We are not trying to convince
the courts of the fame of the BELL mark -- there are already published
decisions calling our mark one of the most famous marks by any
imaginable standard. Not "everything" with Bell infringes our rights
(e.g., Tacobell.com) -- however, uses that are linked to telecom or
Internet-related products and services and other products and services
covered by our federal trademark registrations are infringement
matters that we investigate and pursue.
