DISCONTINUED: Trump Tweets were a Near Field Communication (NFC) product. When a cellphone is brought near the card to (((tap)))® Donald Trump’s tweets would be retrieved from Twitter and displayed on the mobile phone device.
The product was discontinued when I (Clinton Gallagher) was in the process of registering the tap))) logo as a trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The EMVCo (EuroPay, Master Card, VISA) global mobile financial payment cartel challenged the registration claiming the tap))) logo was confusingly similar to )))) –a generic graphic that trademark law disallows– that despite the legality of the mark was allowed to be registered to VISA.
A trademark attorney working for EMVCo harrassed me for nearly a year of back and forth negotiation regarding my attempts to register a trademark that could be used as an NFC visual indicator. Now get this: they finally relented and had no objection when I changed the tap))) logo to (((tap))) that was then allowed to become a formally registered trademark.
Clinton Gallagher remains ready to help you transform –your– products to enable them to became real-time interactive cellular communication devices. Just reach out to talk about it…
