My business is www.omgfashion.com - OMG Fashion Ltd
Address -XXXXX eccles, manchester, m30 7dn
Trading for over 3 years
The other party dost actually have a open business that sells anything to do with fashion or the name OMG
They registered OMG a few months after we set up our business, they are now saying they are willing to give us a licence to use the name OMG, but they want a list of everything we have sold with the OMG mark, but we dont sell anything with OMG printed on it, that is just our url and business name
No the company is C.R.C Innovations (scotland) Limited
They have a partner called AT Innovations Scotland LLP also try them
Yes it says that but also they have OMG under clothing and head wear
Well I cannot find it on the intellectual property office website. What is the trademark number?
Where would I find the trademark number?
I have tried to get OMG in fashion trademarked but it was already took. Okay thankyou I will ring them and tell them what you have said.
It just said its been took
I have found it now. Leave it with me I shall get back to you shortly.
when did you start your business?
We started our business dec 2011
my mistake they regsitered OMG before us, they also have other well known phases registered such as LOL and WTF this tells me they are not genuine trademarks and they do not have any actual businesses up and running that relates to OMG do I have a case with that ?
But they have had OMG for over 3 years and have not used the mark in what they registered it for? I have read that they would have to prove intent to use it if not after 5 years they can be struck off?
The company is trading as a technology company, its obvious what they are doing is not genuine, how is this even legal?
