Kokaneekid Fishing's Trademark Guidelines

We here at Kokaneekid Fishing™ support and encourage ideas, services, and tools that use and supplement the  Kokaneekid Fishing services; however, we are also serious about protecting our reputation and brand identity. To help us achieve this goal, we have created these guidelines to help Kokaneekid Fishing members and others refer to us or our services without compromising the strength of our trademarks or our brand identity. In other words, these guidelines only concern the use of Kokaneekid Fishing’s intellectual property (for example, the use of the term “Kokaneekid Fishing”). For issues regarding any intellectual property which is not exclusively owned by Kokaneekid Fishing, please refer to Kokaneekid Fishing’s Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy.

Trademark Basics

A trademark is a word, name, symbol or device (or a combination thereof) that identifies the goods or services of a person or company and distinguishes them from the goods and services of others. The word “Kokaneekid Fishing” and other Kokaneekid Fishing graphics, logos, designs, page headers, button icons, scripts, and service names (together, the “Kokaneekid Fishing Marks”) are registered trademarks, trademarks or trade dress of Kokaneekid Fishing, in the U.S. and/or other countries.

Why must Kokaneekid Fishing Protect the Kokaneekid Fishing Marks?  Kokaneekid Fishing must be to able assure Internet users and others that only the services offered, sponsored, or endorsed by Kokaneekid Fishing actually bear the Kokaneekid Fishing Marks. Trademark law requires that we not only protect against improper use of the Kokaneekid Fishing Marks, but also protect against the use of confusingly similar marks.
