About six months ago I filed a trademark for the term "Turbo Game Engine". Today I heard back from the US Trademarks Office.
I am the examining attorney assigned to the above-referenced file. There are issues preventing the application from being approved, but with your authorization, these can be resolved by email.
Specifically, a disclaimer of the descriptive wording “GAME ENGINE” is required.
As you may be aware, a disclaimer does not change the mark itself, but merely adds the following statement to the application record:
No claim is made to the exclusive right to “GAME ENGINE” apart from the mark as shown” (emphasis added).
With your authorization, I would be happy to enter the suggested change for you today so that the application may proceed without undue delay and costs.
If you would like me to make this change for you today to avoid a refusal of registration, just reply to this email with "OK."
Thank you so much for your prompt cooperation!
I sent the requested reply. So it looks like we will get a trademark for the name "Turbo Game Engine" which means no one else can legally use it. 👍
This was the whole point of me announcing the name and putting it up for sale as a commercial product six months ago.
