No, but not sure why anyone would contact their attorney. They applied to protect the mark as applied to toys. The toy trucks everyone on here has been buying are manufactured under license from Land Rover.

Again, did i say I would contact them? Go back and read what I said. Let me be even more clear - I have literally ZERO INTEREST in doing that.

I believe he was just covering that base just in case someone decided to do something in haste.
History of some recent threads have shown that some members can react without good judgement.

If it goes through, the idiots at LR will cut the lawyers loose to hammer their customers and support base, just like they did with the recent push to clean the world of any unlicensed use of "Land Rover".

Best salesman for Toyota and Jeep is the Land Rover corporate office.

The application is for motor vehicle as well as a bunch of other things. Not only toys.

Toys, games, and playthings; Scale models and toy models, all of motor land vehicles, all sold complete or in kit form; computer games; golf clubs, golf balls and golf bags; golf divot repair kit; stuffed toy animals; playing cards; puzzles; gymnastic and sporting articles not included in other classes; decorations for Christmas trees

The application is in class 28 not class 12 (motor vehicles). The wording is pulled from their European Union registration and is not the most clear.

Who would want a clear legal document? With all due respect being on the side of LRNA on this site is a bad idea based on how they are treating enthusiasts.

There were "bases" to be covered for the forum? Like, we're an entity that needs someone to tell us what to do?

Let me clarify this again - I thought "wow, email addresses on a public doc - I wouldn't want my work or personal email out there for the world to spam." Another forum member then made an assumption that was wrong - when in fact, I was in agreement.

But now, actually, I just feel like emailing those attorneys, for fun, like to ask about the toys versus everything else, or maybe about what kind Thai food they might like, or whether they wear a hat. Just because this whole "e-mail" thread has become stupid.

1) You stated the submission was not clear. I was asking tongue in cheek why someone would want a legal document to be clear....

2) LNRA was the sole reason that the 50 vehicles were taken earlier this year from owners that were 100% innocent of any wrong doing.

So if you have a website with the word defender in it which predates their filing, does that mean they cannot go after it.?? Hypothetically speaking...of course..lol.

Gentleman, I spoke with Ben over the telephone earlier this evening. He is very knowledgeable in this area of practice and I trust his judgment. I also understand the initial concerns he expressed concerning anyone contacting JLR's attorneys. I speak from experience when I say that sarcasm does not translate well. I'm just going to suggest that you are all more or less on the same page, and the same side (if there is a need to even choose sides) and that everyone should go pop the cap off their favorite beverages and sit back and chill out. Sound good?

Jeff,

Attorneys are like Nuclear Warheads, once activated, they go bananas and fuck it all up


Will, in my book you are not an Attorney, you are a great guy with a License to practice LAW
