    Re: Is there a trademark issue here?

    I don't practice this specific area of the law but can assure those who think we're out for big bucks on things of this nature that we are not smelling anything that hasn't been cooked in the oven big time by the clients.

    Companies are very careful to protect their rights, trade mark or other, and are glad when their legal counsel can make effective arguments on their behalf. We serve the various communities including the business community, which calls the shots in other words. We are no different in this regard than any other adviser or indeed internal employee in terms of trying to achieve corporate objectives, except of course being held to certain ethical and other standards as indeed applies to doctors and many other professionals.

    Good business lawyers keep their clients out of Court.

    I was stating that as a goal Gary which obviously is not always achievable.

    I was just drawing out the implication.
