Murrieta, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
ConferenceSuite, LLC, a leading provider of conferencing services, including web conferencing solutions to small and medium sized businesses, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded them with a registered trademark for CONFERENCE SUITE which serves as the name of the company and its innovative suite of conferencing services. The Federal registration number is 4,181,918, issued on July 31, 2012. The registration of this trademark now disallows any other entity to legally use the name CONFERENCE SUITE and any other names that are confusingly similar as they relate to teleconferencing, video and web conferencing services.
"We are pleased that the USPTO has granted us the trademark for CONFERENCE SUITE," said ConferenceSuite CEO Joel Hall. "Businesses recognize ConferenceSuite as a leading provider of high quality conferencing services and it is nice to know that our well-recognized brand is secure."
Conference Suite, LLC was founded in 2008 to offer conference call and web conferencing services. In March 2011, the company received a cease and desist letter citing unauthorized use of the name and mark CONFERENCE SUITE. The letter requested that ConferenceSuite immediately cease and desist from any further use of the name or mark CONFERENCE SUITE, including use of the domain name (http://www.conferencesuite.com). Legal counsel and additional reference materials provided by the USPTO allowed ConferenceSuite to swiftly defend its right to use the CONFERENCE SUITE mark and file for trademark protection in May 2011.
"I support honest and valid trademark policing and enforcement; however, It's the policing efforts of large corporations that disrupt innovation and creativity that we must remain cognizant of." Joel continued, "The USPTO is an invaluable resource for business owners who feel disadvantaged by a lack of resources and expertise to protect themselves against such disruptions. I hope that the ConferenceSuite award inspires other business owners facing similar challenges and obstacles to follow our measures." Joel concluded, "This marks the end of a profoundly distracting experience and we're happy to move forward"
