FOGln" TRADRMARK ASSIGNMENT EXH. A IS .4. NAKED ASSIGNMENT AND OR ASSIGNMENT IN GROSS TO SPTA

The A~sigJl1nenT Exh. A conceived in frand has no legal existence and is void ab initio, In addition the vagl1c~ indefinite, ambiguous and imprecise Ianguage of the said Assignrnenr esrablishes that We said assignment is a "naked" assignment for the following reasons:

a). Paragraph 3 is so vague to make the said assignment nothing more than an "assi gnmcnt in gross". "Whereas as of the Petition DMe, the Debtor owned or claimed an interest in certain intellectual property, including but no Jimired to. registered and unregistered rradcrnarks and service marks along with the underlying goodwill uf 'whatever' business or arrangement may use sud marks .. _ tl This language ;'\ ~o vague as to make it impossible for any party who reads this assignment to ascertain what marks. If any arc being assigned from what companies, on what goods so as to render this assignment "void" "viodable or "unenforceable", Trustee Fogel's language in paragraph is so vague, imprecise. ambiguous and indefinite as to render the: said assignment of any trademarks to SPTA "uncnforccble" and "void" on its face.

b) Paragraph four is equally. imprecise, ambiguous and indefinite as 10 render the said. asslgnment in gross "null and void". To stare that Sti,;)~lt11

c) Now in paragraph 5 of Exhibit A. Trustee Richard M Fogel not starts to compete with Burnam and Bailey when Fogel auempts the "impossible" to assign trariemarks to ~PTA "whether k".flWll or unknown, dlf:lcl()se,~ hy the Debtor or undisclosed by the Debtor." There is no trademark assignment that has ever been held to be valid In the history of U.~. 'Irademark Law from r 776 to the current date, that contains the assignment language assigning trademarks "whether known or unknown" to a third party,

d). The Trustee Assignment Exh A is dearly void as paragraph 7 states that "Assignor desires to COIlV(;!)'. transfer, assign. deliver and contribu le W Assignee (SPTA) all of the Estate's right, tide, and interest in and to the AS;IlctR (Trademarks) whether, known or unknown to The.

}'OGEL AW .JOHNSON's Fraudulent Schem:e

The Debtor alleges and asserts that Trustee Fogel, SPTA and Lance Johnson were engaged in a fraudulent scheme which disqualified Johnson as a Bidder of Stollers trademarks and that the Bankruptcy judge as U matter of law, could not sanction Fogel and SPTA's fraudulent scheme by permitting SP'[I\ and/or Lance J olinson to bid OIl the as se ts and trudernar ks u r S toller 's es tale Richard Fogel's contract' to sell Lance G. Johnson Stoller's trademarks was conceived in a fraud On the pm and had no legal existence.

Lance G. J ohnson SPTA have no standing and have not purchased any valid trademark rights from Trustee Richard M. Fogel Exh, A. Fogel make no representation That any of the alleged trademarks he is assigning to SPTA are valid Exh, A. See paragraph 7 o-f Exhibit A Assignment attached hereto.

In order to have lawful assignment of valid trademark the owner must assign the "good" will associated with the said trademark. No valid assignment can be made by stating the language. which Fogel used in paragraph 7 of his Assignment, Such language "as is" and "where is." as is" condition without claim or warranty of (trademark) validity. enforceability 0" factual su pport associated

A _, as we 11 known TO expert trademark attorney Lance G _ Jo hnson ISPTA that is why M 1'. Johnson committed:

Fraud in Obtaining STOIJTJi-:R1S Registratifln(S) of SAID Mark(S):

Fraud in obtaining registration of a mark consists of knowingly f •. ilse representation to the Trademark Office regarding a material fact made with the intent to induce reliances, followed by reasonable reliance resulting i n a registration or other similar benefit that would not have been granted but for the misrepresentation. San Juan Products, Inc. v.

San Juan Pools, Inc., 849 F.2d 468. 473. 7 l;-SPA2d 1230, 1234 (8th Cir. 1988).

YlcCartby'g Desk Encyclopedia of Intellectual Property by J. Thomas McCarthy.

Trustee Fogel, SPTA and Lance J ohnson are well aware that an abandoned mark cannot be federally registered, because proof of use i s a predicate to registration. See 1V1cCanhy OIL Trademarks, ~* 19: l m 19:22-19;24 (no registration without use). In Lance Johnson's conringenr agreements to sell Exh. 2 and assign. paragraph four states:

The SPTA makes no [@presentatiQDj warranty. Dr guaranwe regarding the validity, enforceability, intrinsic value or supporting evidence (documentary or otherwise) of <'-lIl}' asset 01" claim acquired by RUYER under this agreement.

Indeed, the SPTA expects that all trademark registrations. alleged common law rights, and trademark licenses that are associated with tile estate of Leo Stoller are. invalid and unenforceable. Nonetheless, BUYER agrees to take title lo the asseus) "as is" and "where is" +

Lance J ohnson' s contingent agreements hxll 2 to sell and assign, executed

Appendix. A Assignment document Exh, 3 and provided by Mr. Johnson has admitted under oath drafting in order for a party to attempt to pro-

cure a valid trademark rflci.slnuion. TI1e hlr1Gllfle:e in Mr . Inhnsori'v contingent agreement Exh 2 to sell and assign acknowledges that Stoller's trademarks are Plil1yaJid and unenforce-iJbJe. ,. The laIlgwJ:g~ cmiL::dI1~d in !..he dOCUUl~1l1 id~IJ!jfled as Appendix A - Assignment Exh. 3 attached to each Contingent Agreement tu Sell and Assign contai IlS language that states:

1'(1) t!-t~ goodwill or LhL' business relating to rhe Products in respect 1100n

which the M arks are used and for which they are registered: .,

Mr. Johnson, an admitted trademark attorney and expert in the field. included language hi the A.Ii'.lIrgllmenr Exh, J which ~tated that the ulleged goodwilJ of StoUCl'ts marks will be assigned. Marks which are invalid have no goodwill (F.xh.2). Mr. Johnson. as part of his scheme to defraud the Patent and Trademark Office, by providing two separate documents; one agreement was. a Contingent Agreement to Sell Exh 2 and Assign as between Mr. Johnson's shell entity, SPTA and the above-named companie-s Group Exhibit 6; and th~ other, Appendix A - Assignment document bxh 3 wllicll i~ to he filed with the Patent and Trademark Office in Ol"dE;'lr to effect a valid transfer of an allegedly invalid trademark. Mr. Johnson knows that an asslgument of a mark without goodwill is invalid.

§17~7 - Assignment of mark without good will

If a trademark symbol is assigned apart from the good win which

is symbolized, some cou-rts will characterize the result as .... abando ned " ,

since the mark may cease to identify a continuity of a certain nature and quality of goods. See ** 18: 17 - 18:20.

Lance Johnson, Richard M. Fogel and SPTA in order to effect their fraud on the Patent Office, has provided in the Appendix A - Assignment Exh, 3 document LIHlt (he alleged "good will" of Stoller's mariti can be assigned to third parties in order to affect a lawful assignment, when 1\Ir. Johnson and the said parties have conspired and colluded together by signing the Contingent Agreement to Sell and Assign Exh. 2 that Stotler's marks are all invalid.

Since an abandonment of a trademark results lTI a forfeiture of rights ~ as well known to Trustee Pogel, the parties that Lance Johnson had sign the contin gent agreements. Group Exb. 6~ abandoned their rights to the trademarks upon signing the said agreements as well-known to Lance Johnson and Trustee Richa rd !VI. Fogel.

"Sale of trademark rights apart from good will symbolized by the trademark is known as ill) 'assignment in gross'''. See ~§ 18: 1 . 1 &:9.

McCarlhy on Trademarks,

Lance Johnson with the permission or Trustee fogcl set up a "scheme" in which JOhU~OIl formed a "sham" company called Soddy [or the Prevention of Trademarks to acquire the trademarks of Leo Stoller. He entered into agreements Group Exh 6 with eight parties acknowledging that the said trademarks are invalid and unenforceble. Lance Johnson provided assignmenr documents Exh. 3 which are to be filed with {he Trademark Office alleging that the same trademarks which are purchased as invalid and unenforceable a rc val id. Such a scheme represents a dear fraud on the Patent and Trademark Office as well known to Trustee Fogel, Lance Johnson and SPTA. Judge Schmcttcrcr said he is only approving the contingent agreement to sell and assign Exh 2 not the assignment document Exh 3, It is for the Office of Enrollment and Discipline to determine if Lance G.
