Hi Good Folks.

I had Pilsner.ca in with HockeyForum.ca but it seemed to be overlooked due to the other.

I'd like some feedback good or bad for this domain.

Pilsner
1: A light, golden lager having a strong flavor of hops.
2: A tall, thin, footed beer glass.

2,560,000 google

I didnt check a TM but don't think it would affect the domain considering its an item and not a brand.

Thanks in advance.

Kevin.

thanks.. I still like the name, makes me thirsty :)
I think everyones first name is TM'd as well. At least every one I've checked is. Mostly game companys like Hasbro, Mattel and the like. I'm certain Walt Disney has several TM's for given names as well.

Hi Kevin. This link should show you that "Pilsner" is trademarked in Canada. I am certain it is trademarked in the US. Sorry buddy. One of those situations where a common phrase is TMed.

Just because a word is TM doesn't mean exclusive rights over that word, unless it is done in all categories.

If it has been done for a beer product, then the Trademark Registrations authority is well out of order. This word comes from Czech Republic and means Beer. Abuses of this sort are not at all uncommon, however, as in the case where Budweiser tried to prevent the original Czech Brewery using its own name!

Best Regards

Nice input Dave.

I like these facts.. Probably as much as I like history.

I strongly beleive that using a TM is fine when its a common place word from the dictionary or everyday use.. of course google and yahoo excluded.

So long as your not taking advantage of their marketing per se. In which case that can be considered theft.

Sticky subject, but if your intentions are honest. your probably safe.

Yes, but can you remember anything from the visit. I sure I wouldn't, but then Lenka my girlfriend wouldn't let me loose in a Czech Brewery!

Nice beer, but the Czechs have plenty more where that came from, but Lenka another of their exports is definitely a "one off".

Nice generic term. all trademarks are "xxxxx pilsner". Min XXXXX when the brewer comes knocking. Picked up pilsener.ca today myself after seeing the Lakeport commericial this evening.
