Ursa Major Posted April 24, 2013 Share Posted April 24, 2013 So I just checked on my brand trademark that I filed many months ago that was supposed to be done with the gazette posting phase on April 19th. The day before or so, Diageo filed an "extention of time to oppose" letter with the USPTO. It basically means that they are going to oppose my mark and just need time for their lawyers to figure out how to best screw me. Apparently Diageo owns a company in the Netherlands called "Ursus Vodka Holdings." My company is called "Ursa Major Distilling." Their mark is entirely different than mine except for the "urs" in their name. Now obviously this is a job for a trademark lawyer, but I was just curious if anyone else has run into this before and what the chances would be of actually keeping my name in the end. I've only been in production for a couple of months and things are finally starting to take off, it would certainly suck to start having to rebrand now. Any thoughts?
