Where is the trademark?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

I just got a rejection because of "Title/Keyword Trademark", but I can't find any...

Is "caterpillar vehicle" a trademark?

Or does anybody see anything that could be a trademark in the title or keywords?

Thanks in advance!

caterpillar is a trademark?

I translated it from the German "Raupenfahrzeug" (which is no trademark)...

What is the English non-trademark-name for it?

By the way, you haven't lived until you've tried to model that massive truck in 3D with all its little details!  :(

One more thing...

If you're trying to get around trademark for commercial use of a piece of heavy equipment like that, you could get into trouble.  Submit as editorial or don't use it at all, but don't try to call it something else that simply tries to avoid the trademarked name, because the machine itself is probably also protected by dozens of patents, copyrights, and trademarks.  It will be easily recognized by the company that makes it.

Don't give their attorneys a reason to come after you.

You haven't lived until you've driven in one.

thanks a lot 🙂

I sent it again as editorial - just to be safe.

And I removed the word "Caterpillar" because I don't know by which company it was built
