blog using our Business Name, MyPCMyWay™

Found a blog using our Business Name, MyPCMyWay™

While Google searching for our Business Name, MyPCMyWay™ I found mypcmyway.blogspot.com.

WOW, I have a blogspot account??? NO WAIT, I DON’T have a blogspot account with Google®.  In 2009, my husband and I REGISTERED the Business Name MyPCMyWay™ in Texas (10 year ownership rights).  We currently control  the best Domain names associated with MyPCMyWay™; so, how can Google let someone other than us register the blog name MyPCMyWay™???

We have been very vocal and upfront about our INTENT to Trademark MyPCMyWay™ in the future and we are aware that by Registration (10 year ownership) we are AUTOMATICALLY granted Common Law Trademark status which gives us time to Federally register our Trademark in the future as we grow our company.

The “Other” blogger is also offering computer Tips (wow, it’s like he read our website for what to include with HIS “My PC, My Way”– Wonder if I could change the spelling of another FAMOUS software company and use THEIR name in a blog????

I have sent him a facebook message inquiring about his “ethical” and “legal”choice of a Blog site title/URL. I have also posted to Google’s Blogger Forum where I was basically told “too bad” and that I could ask him to give me the URL…give me rights and usage to the name I already OWN????

In fairness, I did contact Google via Facebook this morning to privately message them about the issue as well (hoping they see that the blog could be mistaken for our Business and is eerily similar to our MyPCMyWay™).  Here’s hoping that he will change his URL to “Your PC Your Way” or something NOT including our Business Name and therefore deceiving those following his blog to MISTAKE his association to the REAL MyPCMyWay™ blog and family of websites!  Wonder if it matters that he lives in INDIA????

Upcoming Small Businesses be careful (Hello, Mr. President)–watching to make sure your IP is protected even with Common Law Trademark Status is an apparent  FULL TIME job  How many NEW Small Businesses do YOU think will jump in if they can’t afford to Trademark/Copyright IMMEDIATELY upon their business creation if this can very easily happen and they are told “quit whining or too bad or beg the other person to give you what you already own”–Would YOU be upset if this happened to YOUR Business????  As a struggling Small Business Owner, we are just fighting to keep our Business OURS.  We DID pay a Registration fee and MyPCMyWay is a Sole Proprietorship Registered in the State of Texas (Common Law Trademarked to us).

Thank you for continuing to support MyPCMyWay™ by visiting our blog and websites…I plan to upload videos for software installs in the near future and hopefully spend a considerable amount of time posting/blogging in 2013. In the meantime, feel free to e-mail us if you have a specific computer issue that you would like for us to help with!

Happy Computing,

Dan & Lita
