Exactly.. Can't believe they let that one out the door as written. Someones gonna get an anal toe probe pretty soon in the old trademark clerks office I'll bet. If found to be overreaching, existing mark gets cancelled.I guess Dave and I are going to have to paint our trucks another color now. :hehe:
But in all seriousness, they can only trademark a particular shade of the color, not the color itself. Then they have to show that the other parties are using that particular shade, too. I work for a company whose brown color is trademarked, but only that one shade of brown.
My issue is, their metallic blue looks to be very close to illusion blueberry I've been rocking since early 2010. If so that color coating is only available thru one company. Be interesting to hear their comments.. I sure don't plan to stop my use, so maybe I should trademark one myself.
Somone board, help find me a post of their first metal flake blue.Forward 10yrs, all aftermarket diesel parts only be available in raw aluminum...
