Use of "Shopsmith" and "MARK V" Trademark Brands

Most companies work hard to create and protect their trademarks, copyrights, service marks, and brands offline and online. Consumers come to know and rely upon trademarks, brands, and service marks as an indication of product quality and reliability, and many companies aggressively defend against counterfeiting, misuse, and misappropriation, so as to maintain consumer confidence in the company's products. Shopsmith is no exception.

Trademarks, copyrights, registered names and other intellectual property (such as advertising copy, photographs, etc), are defined under federal law, and are legally protected by federal law from misappropriation. A good brand has perceived value to the extent that it becomes synonymous with the product it represents. A brand takes marketing strategy, time, and resources to build and a substantial budget to maintain.

When a company achieves branded awareness, consumers and competitors alike will sometimes whether innocently or not, seek to improperly associate themselves, their products, or their services to that brand.

Under the Federal Latham Act [15 U.S.C.A. 1051], the Ohio Deceptive Trade Practices Act, The Federal Trademark Dilution Act of 1995, and other state and federal laws, Shopsmith has legal rights and obligations to limit the use of the "Shopsmith" and "MARK V" trade names, and other service marks, trade names, and copyrights to prevent:

1. Deception as to affiliation, connection or association.
2. Dilution of trademark or product of the senior mark.
3. Threat of "palming off" the senior mark or name.

All three of these limitations and other limitations are applicable to the unauthorized use of Shopsmith's trademarks, service marks, brands, copyrights, and other intellectual property. It is Shopsmith's policy to aggressively defend its intellectual property rights and to prosecute to the maximum extent provided by law any unauthorized use of its intellectual property, including unauthorized use of Shopsmith owned trade names and intellectual property in print, broadcast and on the internet.

Specifically, Shopsmith, Inc., is legally justified in prohibiting the unauthorized use of its trade names and intellectual property on online websites including representations that products are "compatible with Shopsmith … MARK V" or similar stand alone phrasing because that phrasing deceptively implies an affiliation between the advertiser and Shopsmith. Shopsmith encourages consumers to report any instances of such unauthorized use, and Shopsmith will take all necessary steps as provided by law to cause the advertiser to cease and desist from such activity.

©Shopsmith, Inc. All Rights Reserved. "Shopsmith™" and "MARK V™" are Registered Trademarks ® of Shopsmith, Inc.
