One good peice of news so far, he did file his express abandonment on atleast his current claim here in the U.S.
See as updated in the current status here;
http://tarr.uspto.gov/servlet/tarr?regser=serial&entry=85353491



p.s Is there anyone who can translate Italian better than Google Translate can? I posted here about his intentions to file in Italy and I have lost something in translation as it has thus far been shrugged off as an 'Amaericano concern' ;p

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Judging from the way he talks it would appear that guy would seriously benefit from some old fashioned gene pool elimination therapy.
You know, like the application of leeches etc..

"Prior Art" is a term that applies to patents, not trademarks.

The term you are looking for is "prior use." Common words used to describe a product can not be trademarked.

nope

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

In light of the Mt.Gox trademark discussion , this is now relevant.

Read the post prior before commenting.  Evidently this isn't dead.. not by a long shot.

This was wrong in 2011,  and it's wrong now in 2013.  Just because the player before was a lawyer,  and now it's an exchange doesn't make it any better.

The fact is the fact,  the term has seen prior use since 2009.

Sorry to jump on you like that kjj,  but this trademark issue is bugging me...  I don't see how this is any different that Mt.Gox got a trademark for the term.

This discussion is very important to the bitcoin community now that MtGox is risking going bankrupt.
They got 2 assets of value that can and will be sold: customer database, trademark of bitcoin.
We should demand the Bitcoin Foundation to use the money they have earned through member fees to complain about the trademark of bitcoin so it can become revoked.

This whole thread is moot. MtGox released the trademark to the public for open use and the word has since become a generic term. Unless you append some extra words to '__ __ Bitcoin __ __' no one's getting a new trademark.
