A few weeks ago, I filed a trademark application on behalf of a client. They have been in business a little over a year, and have seen phenomenal growth. They use their name for everything — from the name of their business, to their website url, to the name of their Facebook group, to the name of their signature product.
So, as I said, I filed the application for them.
Last week, they did a random search and found out another company filed an application for the same name, 6 days after they did.
