My wife wants to create a Christian-themed merchandise line

Customer Question

My wife wants to create a Christian-themed merchandise line that has "Forever Royal" in the tag line...with the dual meaning for related verses in the Bible as well as to build on the Kansas City Royal's success. We live in KC. She would not use the same font or Royals logo. How can we check to see if anyone has Copy Rights to that "Forever Royal" line?

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

To answer your questions directly, you would need to check a few places to see if this phrase is trademarked. You would need to check nationally, and in the local states. Below I have provided you with the links where you can conduct a Trademark Search for Missouri, Kansas, and nationally:

Missouri check:

Kansas check:

National check:

Hope that helps!

Sincerely,

Dimitry, Esq.
