Statement
of
Facts:
OnJanuary
7th
we received a
letterfrom
Nike Inc.! Converse
Inc
stating
that
we
had
infringed
upon their
trademark
rights by doing Business as
Lebron
Jordan
Inc
..
The
reason, they claimed
the
combination
Lebron
Jordan
was
an
Infringement
because
they
own
the
rights to
the
last
name
Jordan
and
the
first
name
Lebron;
in
any
combination.
This
assumes
that
only one
person
can
trademark
a
productwith
a
name
once
it
has
been used,
in
any
form.
Lebron
Jordan
is
not
Michael
Jordan,
or
Lebron
James.
It
is
neitherLebron
or
Jordan.
The
company
is
not
a single
name
company
but
rather
Lebron
Jordan.
We
were not
only
the
first to secure
thenameLebron Jordan,
but
prior
to us, you could
not
even find
that
name
combination on Google
and
any
other
search
engine.6:
On January
13
th
we received a
similar letter
from
Jump
D.C.,
and
Live nation,
representing
Michael
Jordan. The
letter
also claimed
infringement
violations
and
asked
that
we cease
and
Desist from
not
only using
the
brand,
but
return
all monies for
past
orders.
