Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Were you selling anything other than head-wear I would have to say that by dropping the work hot from the name, you would almost certainly be in compliance. However as you intend to sell a similar product, it would be like a new burger joint opening with the name of The King. The combination of the use of a significant identifier used in an already trademarked name, in conjunction with the sales of similar products, would be likely to lead to a meritorious claim for trademark infringement by the cowgirl cap company if and when they learned of your name. I am sorry.
I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,Doug
