You might have noticed that there are a few big time candle makers who have
taken to TM and regestering their candle names and scents. Yankee Candles has
Tarts, Fragrances, christmas wish, and so on. Others have Cake candles and sugar cookie.
Many of the small time candle makers are going to run out of things to call thier candles. What is next?
Will one of the larger companies TM the word Candle? Where will we be then? If these issues are important to you and you
can take a little time write to the person named below and express your feelings to them. I feel that whom ever is responsible
for researching terms that are being TM'ed isn't doing his/her job very well. If they were they would realize that these frases that they are using are
very common names used by many people, and they did not solely come up with the idea or name.
What I feel should be alowed is the TM of certain scents with names thought up by that individual. Such as Christmas wish, white christmas. Names like these that someone obviously made up for these candles. I do not
believe however that Sugar cookie, Macintosh, buttercream, tart, cake candles should be terms that a company should be able to TM.
