Abq Jew ® Is A Registered Trademark

We're On Our Way:  On Friday May 25th, just before Shabbat, Abq Jew® received a certified mail envelope from his intellectual property lawyer, Deborah Peacock, of the noted Albuquerque law firm Peacock Myers.

In the envelope was a certificate announcing to Abq Jew® and the world that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) had registered Abq Jew® as a trademark of Abq Jew LLC on Tuesday May 8th.

To give you readers a sense of how trademark processing works - the application was filed in November 2011.  One lawyer / USPTO conversation was required (in March); all issues were resolved; and then, in May, Abq Jew® was registered.

To give you readers a sense of how trademark marketing works - Abq Jew® received this postcard on Friday May 11th, and was able to immediately confirm via the USPTO website.

Yes, this was a full two weeks before Abq Jew® received that certified mail envelope.
Yes, this was a mere three days after the Abq Jew® trademark was registered.
As Yakov Smirnoff says -

What a country!

And as Abq Jew® says -

Thank you, Abq Jew® friends!
