Over the last couple of months, we’ve been working on getting a registered trademark for MailerMailer. Yesterday in the mail we got a couple of solicitations from some random companies offering us services and products on our new trademark.
Funny thing is that we haven’t yet received notice from the trademark office that our application was approved! A quick check on the PTO’s website reveals that the mark was issued on December 28, 2004.
You gotta just love the efficiency of the junk mailers!
Followup from January 7: today in the mail the official trademarks arrived. They were postmarked January 5, 2005. I guess that’s not so bad after all.
