Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Trademark rights are protected by common law. Registration offers further use of the mark. The first in use in commerce is the owner of the mark. If you used it first in California, then you would have the right to use the mark in California and also to protect against infringement. The other company would have the right in Illinois and the other states.
