Hi, i am a boy from spain that i want to know if I can register a clothing brand whose name is "Young Hollywood" . I've seen the web oami.europa.eu that exist the brand "Young Hollywood" , but on the web Trademarkia , in paragraph state , is written" ABANDONED - NO STATEMENT OF USE FILED" with date of 5/13/2013 .
Then, as I see it is abandoned , ¿ can i register the brand with the same name? Thank you!
Thank you for your message, We are happy to assist you.
The " ABANDONED - NO STATEMENT OF USE FILED" status means that the USPTO issued a Notice Of Allowance to the trademark applicant that a statement of use was required within 6 months from the mailing date. Because no statement of use was filed within that time frame the trademark application was abandoned.
Also it is possible for two trademarks to coexist with the same name or similar, so long as they are aimed at different economic markets and are dissimilar enough; unfortunately, the dissimilarity of trademarks can only be determined by a licensed attorney, which I am not.
