Much Ado About A Mark: Caught RedHended

ddd

July 1st, Netsdaily article headline is “BROOK-LINSANITY”.  On the same day, an “quick thinking” Lin fan, JlinPortal LLC’s owner, trademarked “Brook-Lin” when prevents others from producing Lin-centric paraphernalia using the same mark.

July 14th, Adam Kennedy asked Netsdaily whether they could make “Brook-Lin” into a “thing.” Netsdaily replied someone has already trademarked “Brook-Lin” hence preventing Brooklyn Nets media from making “Brook-Lin” into a “thing”:

Lin fan DEM/Kpkafle confronted to JlinPortal’s regarding the trademark, then JLFan88 suggested that JlinPortal to relinquish the trademark:

          • Phonow

            eh, like i said at the other site.. he is a shrink that comes to jl.net to push people’s buttons. he wants to see what their reactions are. to me, it is unethical.

          • Winner

            use them as experiments?

          • Phonow

            yes, for case studies. but i am sure he was joking about it at the time. i do not think he would do that in real life.

          • Winner

            is he a shrink or a therapist?

          • Phonow

            i think either a psychologist or psychiatrist, but am not sure.

            once in a while, he diagnoses people–once he said khuang suffered from pronia (a person who thinks the world is backing him up)

          • Winner

            well he needs to see one tonight after your comment. lol.

            hey charles if u read this, dont be upset.

          • Winner

            i guess thats how he got your comment. lol.

          • Phonow

            you know, i am not sure where he got that comment from. i could look at my history…. but i am pretty sure he kept it from long ago.

          • Winner

            like i said, its your opinion.

          • Phonow

            yes, and i am keeping to it.

          • Phonow

            btw… i will be editing some of the comments here.

            when things die down, get in touch with etane– you need a password in order to get into the rest of the site.

            llips hangs out here too. nice convos.

          • Winner

            yeah. i know wut u mean. edit them so sensitive ppl wont be able to see them.

          • Phonow

            me– i deleted some of my comments.

          • Winner

            just to let you know that all comments on all your thread are visible, not private.

      • Rick James

        hey dd…I guess you have your own site. It was an unfortunate that you were banned, but thats life right?

        http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6mcekOHZK1rs713n.gif

  • Rick James

    normally I don’t ask this but because you are DD, I need to know. How much freedom is allowed here? Hate speach and insults beyond a certain point are probably grounds for a banning. What about trolling the trolls and once in a while the Lin fans? What about bashing others within a certain limit?

    • Winner

      you wanted to trash this site on your first appearance? hmm.

      • Rick James

        yes, double D aka etane pushed boundaries on jeremylin dot net, so what about his own site? How will he react to trollers is what I want to know. Does he crap or allow crap where he eats??

        • Winner

          um it takes two to tango right?

          • Rick James

            i just miss the guy, he is a lovable gorilla

    • Kpkafle

      No, profanity on this site. Etane has family posts on here too. So it wouldn’t be cool. Jeremylin.net is the wild west and you are allowed to push the envelope until the mod says no. Actually the mod on there is very arbitrary. Sometimes he won’t be on there for weeks but since Lin signed with the Nets he has put up alot of forum topics. He is just a Lin fan like the rest of us. It has been an exciting three weeks.

      • Rick James

        fair enough!

        Danks ddar

      • Llips don’t lie

        Do you know why he’s so solicitous towards Nathan g?

      I do have rules written somewhere

      • Winner

        dd san, just to let you know that all comments on all your thread are visible, not private.

      • Llips don’t lie

        Could you just keep this thread open?

        • dd

          i dunno how to do it

          • Llips don’t lie

            Then lock up this place

          • dd

            man i created this post to keep off topic comments off my other posts and… now tihs post is off topic too hahah i can’t win

          • Llips don’t lie

            Privacy issue for pn and I
            And you if I might add
            Remember your reason for locking place up in the first place?

          • dd

          • Phonow

            oh gosh, just so you know… i deleted the link to your site earlier. i thought that you would have been able to flick a switch and get the rest of the comments private.

          • dd

          • Phonow

            strong feelings can run either way…. but life is not worth living w/o them.

          • dd

            well this post is good for one thing. record for more deleted comments than actual ones

            yes i am counting my blessings

          • Phonow

            have to weigh the good with the bad… and make hard decisions.

          • Llips don’t lie

            I’ll do that
            Give me a while I’ll let u know when I’m done
            Thks

          • Llips don’t lie

            Your lawyer advice to lock site?

          • dd

            man you’re really buggin. no one asked you to pour your heart out on this site. you spent no time or money building it. so stop treating it like it’s your site.

            i had locked it but see no reason to.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Ok ok

          • Phonow

            i see your point… but the problem everyone is able to read our posts on all of your threads. old and new.

          • dd

            i didn’t know there were so many secrets on my site… might be targeted by assange

          • Llips don’t lie

            Pn and I have some personal comm

          • Phonow

            lol. i felt a sigh of relief knowing that my comments would be private. :)

            but even now, charles is pulling old stuff from this site & bringing it to .net.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Kinda knew it wd happen

      • Rick James

        great site though. You should make a new user name and head on back to jeremylin.net

        or we can all petition the mod to unban you.

        • dd

          yah i like to see a petition float around . will be good for my ego

      • Llips don’t lie

        Are u around?

  • Llips don’t lie

    You’ve changed things up
    Comments are visible tho

    • Phonow

      hey. wanted to get in touch w/you– to let you know thread changed.

      • Llips don’t lie

        There are comments I wish to keep private.
        Should I start deleting?

        • Phonow

          yes.

          don’t know what e is going to do. re private remarks

          • Llips don’t lie

            Yes? To delete?

          • Phonow

            i deleted some of my remarks from this thread. but am too lazy to go backwards.

          • Llips don’t lie

            He could just keep this thread open?

          • Phonow

            unfortunately, older threads show our comments

          • Llips don’t lie

            I saw
            Didn’t sign up for this

          • Phonow

            i am waiting to see what e does.

          • Llips don’t lie

            It’s hard to delete old posts even
            Getting annoyed

  • Llips don’t lie

    Thanks

  • Llips don’t lie

    Need to keep the site pure
    Pure etane fan site
    Lol

  • Llips don’t lie

    I’m done.

        You’re v appreciated

        • Phonow

          take care llips! same to you… hugs.

          don’t be a stranger. i will be posting at this site… say hi okay?

  • Kpkafle

    The JL.n site is irritating me today. SC and KH dominating conversation and patting themselves on the back thinking they are the gurus of basketball knowledge is nauseating.

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      two old men stroking each others’ flatulence. oh wellz it’s more lively there than here. my two mainstays committed sepuku.

      • Kpkafle

        Also more posters coming back from the other site. Posting on both sites always seemed so traitorous to me. Other site was created by long time posters because they couldn’t stand the open atmosphere of the original site. So posters like Don and KH are so timid on the other site but act so egotistical on the original site.

        • dd

          people can consume whatever media they want. but if people left out of principal that they wanted to build a shrine/altar and decided that’s not right for them after all, nothing wrong with that either. perhaps it’s a good thing they are coming back. always felt something’s not right with the other site. so cult of personality driven. the trademark issue does shed light on their original intent.

        • http://etane.net/ etane

          jl died. did everyone really migrate to portal?

      • http://etane.net/ etane

        the roaches. it was quite dead when i made the comment… only three people were commenting. two of them were stroking each other.

  • Phonow

    freemind mentioned trademarks on portal.

    freemind2 hours ago
    LinkedIn sought trademark protection on July 13 for “Brooklin,” no hyphen. In its application, it wanted to use “Brooklin” for
    “Downloadable software for tracking and capturing changes to a datasource.”

    Anyone find the choice of LinkedIn “software name” and timing questionable ? If they have sought to trademark way before 7/1, this probably would not be a concern but to file on 7/13 on the premise of software name and knowing that LinkedIn is a social networking site is all too calculated IMO.

    A quick search found that these cities are named Brooklin.
    Brooklin, Ontario, Canada
    Brooklin, California, United States
    Brooklin, Maine, United States
    Brooklin Novo, Brazil, a neighbourhood of São Paulo
    Brooklin Velho, Brazil, a neighbourhood of São Paulo

    Should Brooklin trademark is awarded to LinkedIn, wouldn’t that prevent his local businesses from using it like Brooklin hair salon, Brooklin bakery? What do y’all think?

    In light of this, I think Psalm’s advance action on Brook-Lin with the hypen and transferring it to Lin
    was truly brilliance !!!!

    • Phonow

      i have to rush away, but will comment tonight.

      i am not sure if a software application will conflict with a consumer goods application. but wut do i know. lol

      and…. am not sure if a name of a city is allowable under trademark rules.

      • Phonow

        lol. i forgot what i was going to say. oh well. it must have been unmemorable.

        we need a good trademark/copyright lawyer.

        i have been laying low getiing a bit contentious–

        • Phonow

          lol. no, not charles… i have him on block. i do not see anything he writes.

          i meant .net has been a little snippy.

          • Phonow

            ah…. it just shows how important you are to .net. you lighten things up when you post. :) ;)

          • Phonow

            you are way too modest. :)

          • Phonow

            he will be here by and by.

            either that or you should be “first” on his new thread. :) he is a very interesting man. if you are into photography or aquariums… you’ll be yakking up a storm.

          • Phonow

            no, i am not a photographer… my friend was… and he posted here for a while. they talked technical stuff… so i kept out of that convo.

          • Phonow

            hahaha. very $$$$. dd is a very good photographer. maybe one day he will post some of it on an “open” thread.

          • Phonow

            because we can. lol

          • Phonow

            hope dd comes by later on…
