Subject [jira] [Commented] (PODLINGNAMESEARCH-32) Establish whether "Apache MRQL" is a suitable name
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2013 20:55:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PODLINGNAMESEARCH-32?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13680670#comment-13680670

Leonidas Fegaras commented on PODLINGNAMESEARCH-32:
---------------------------------------------------

The US and EU trademark searches, and the Google search, suggest that the project name MRQL
does not conflict with a previously registered trademark. More specifically, 

1) I checked USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) at 
http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/index.jsp 
using the Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) for a registered trademark. The term I
used was MRQL, meaning that "MRQL" could appear by itself, or as a prefix or suffix to another
trademark (by searching "*MRQL*"). The search was performed for live and dead terms, for all
fields: owner name and address, serial number, and combined word mark. No matches were found.

2) I searched the EU Office for Harmonization of the Internal Market (OHIM), at the Community
Trademark Online database (CTM-ONLINE) 
http://oami.europa.eu/ows/rw/pages/QPLUS/databases/searchCTM.en.do 
and found 0 trade marks. 

3) I did a web search on Google for "MRQL". From the first 100 hits, all those links that
do not refer to this MRQL project (pre-Apache or the incubating one), do not refer to any
other project or product. 

Is there any other place I should check?
