    Sickening, sickening and sickening

    These guys are an abomination. Lets all spread the word on this.

    As my Sifu said about things:

    "Mo Lum Bai Lui"........Martial Arts Ruiners.

    I have an idea, I am going to copyright the last names Jones, Wong and Padilla. Also the word "freedom". All must pay tribute who utilize these words.

    The world is being squeezed by money hungry leeches. Sickening.

    r.(shaolin), have you tried posting in the Southern Shaolin and Mantis (etc) sections ? If you want, I can paste your posting on other forums outside over the next few days, to help bring this to light.

    Broadcast e-mails to all Shaolin Kung Fu/Wu Shu organizations would be useful also. I am sure you have done it already.

    Whatever help you need please do not hesitate to ask. Been a little busy, but never too busy.

    Its not easy to claim leadership over the entire Shaolin clans. This in effect is what they seem, by legal twistings, to be doing.

    It is wise for them to cease.

    Is there anyway to create an online petition??

    Something that people can fill out online, that would still be considered a legal petition??

    If you could, I bet you could get THOUSANDS of signatures in a very short period of time.

    Those that are the most sucessful are also the biggest failures. The difference between them and the rest of the failures is they keep getting up over and over again, until they finally succeed.

    not Shaolin wushu: shaolin wushu canada

    It seems to be a mistake here. The trademark is "Shaolin Wushu Canada" which could be a school's name. That doesn't mean you cannot use "Shaolin Wushu" without their permission.

    It looks like most of the action is on the thread in this forum, so I'll copy what I said over on the general forum:

    You need to take a step back and re-evaluate things a bit. First, any communication with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) must reference the application/serial number of the Mark in question. Second, this trademark application was just filed on 4-December-2002, so it is not open to opposition yet.

    Here is a link to the Mark in question on the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) web site database:

    http://strategis.ic.gc.ca/SSG/1160/trdp116069100e.html

    Here is a link to the CIPO's general Trademark page. It will provide some insights on how you should proceed. There is even a list of registered trademark attorneys and if you are serious about opposing this Mark, then you should retain a Canadian trademark attorney.

    http://strategis.gc.ca/sc_mrksv/cipo/tm/tm_main-e.html

    The basics of the process are that a request for a trademark registration is filed. That application is then examined by the CIPO to determine IF the mark is registerable. IF they determine that the Mark can be registered, then the Mark is advertised in the Trade-marks Journal and any concerned parties are allowed 2 months to oppose the mark before it proceeds to registration. This opposition typically comes from other parties who have a trademark or trademark application that was filed prior to the trademark application in question and feel that the Mark in question would infringe upon their own Mark ... especially if the goods/wares and services are in the same classes. The fact that "wushu" has a common meaning in the Chinese language, as does "shaolin" could be potential grounds for the Mark to be denied registration by the CIPO.

    Now for my disclaimer: I am not licensed to practice law anywhere in the world. I do work with intellectual property (patents and trademarks), that requires that I have a basic understanding of the processes involved. You should seek legal council in this matter (refer to the list of attorneys on the above-referenced link).

    I hope this helps.

    Respectfully,

    Dave Fulton

    anyone know a good copyright lawyer?

    Maybe I'll just go and copyright "praying mantis" and why not, "kung fu" itself!
