Fast forward to August 20. The Obamas took the battle to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and demanded that the trademark for Higher Grounds Enterprises be canceled. The Obamas claim that Massey wasn’t using the trademarked name in 2016 when their production company was started. That prompted an angry riposte from Massey’s attorney, who calls the couple’s request for cancellation of her trademark “deplorable behavior”.

“The Obamas have known for almost a year that their Higher Ground trademark application was rejected by the USPTO because it infringed my client’s rights,” says Zerner. “Instead, of simply picking another name, the Obamas’ lawyers have now filed a meritless petition to cancel my client’s trademark so they can take it for themselves. This is really deplorable behavior. I hope that the Obamas realize that these actions are not consistent with the values they preach and that they instruct their attorneys to immediately dismiss the petition.”

Scumbag move. Should have offered $$$ instead. Probably wouldn't have cost that much.

If you like your trademark, you can keep your trademark.

And thread title is wrong. A trademark is not a patent.

Is there anything illegal or abnormal with challenging a trademark through the patent office? If the trademark is unused and parked then why not challenge it? Businesses challenge, buyout, and sue over trademarks all the time.

I certainly hope this isn’t just political. Our current president would take someone over the coals to get a trademark he wants and has done it in the past.

This is much ado about nothing but it is funny to note that even the Obama's choice of names for their production company is condescending.

There are serious thousands of trademark suits every year.

Imagine they will have to either buy the desired name or change the name of their production company.

Link trends hyperbole with the “ Obama’s have taken over Netflix”.

ODS is the flip side to TDS.
