CLOSED TRADEMARK MATTERS

This page is a record of settled trademark disputes. We prefer to settle matters and avoid costly legal fights if possible.

We commenced proceedings to enforce our trademark in July 2015. We first contacted GoDaddy who denied being the registrar. We presented counterexample of the whois report from ping.eu which shows them as registrar.

GoDaddy did provide us with the correct registrant’s full name and address to wit:

  • Registrant Name: Alex Jackson
  • Registrant Organization:
  • Registrant Street: 1011 North Lawrence Street
  • Registrant City: Philadelphia
  • Registrant State/Province: Pennsylvania
  • Registrant Postal Code: 19123
  • Registrant Country: United States
  • Registrant Phone: +1.2679020013
  • Registrant Email: aljackson@hardcoredroid.com

We repeatedly contacted registrant who refused to cooperate. Following an exchange of email messages we then approached the registrant’s ISP(s).

We contacted the ISP (Media Temple) who possibly was hosting the infringing site but to no avail. This makes them an accessory after the fact. We identified the ISP by use of the tracert which can identify the network and operators easily.

We have also noticed another ISP, synthesis which uses wordpress which may be operating as a cloud server with media temple. We have contacted them with a take down notice as well.

As of August 19, 2015 the domain now shots it to be redirected by GoDaddy to a parking page. It is now taken down but Google has not yet updated the index.
