Hi. I can help you answer this question.
If there are no other similar marks to "Pack-Men Moving Services" in the same category and class as the one that you are applying to then you should not have an issue. No reasonable person would confuse Pac-Man the video game with a moving service with the trade name Pack-Men. You should be fine.
The removal or addition of the "-" will not make a difference.
Hi. Please let me know if that sufficiently answers your question.
Great! Definitely makes me feel better.
I'm going to just submit Pack-Men as the trademark term and submit under the moving services goods/services. Is that ok?Rather than submitting the Pack-Men Moving Services as the term.
That is fine. As long as there are no other conflicting marks already registered.
