I received the solicitation below this week. The cost for a listing in the scam publication is a mere $1,650.00. The publication has no legal or other significance. There is no telling how many (or how few) of these “catalogues” are published or to whom they are distributed. According to their website, “The collection is prepared without aiming at completeness; it is rather an informative and commercial publication.” I would love to be able to ask one of these publishers just what is the value of a listing in their expensive catalog?
It appears this group, TM-Edition, has been around for a few years. Unlike some of the other recent scam solicitations, this one provides absolutely ZERO value. And the solicitation featurees no contract terms or details on the back, as some of the others do.
If you have any questions about this or any other solicitation related to a trademark, consult your attorney at once.
