Tiger Woods and Trademarks

From posting his best ever Masters first round here, Woods finished tied for fourth place, five shots behind Mickelson. But though he may have come up short in Sunday’s last round, Woods silenced critics with his outstanding play earlier in the tournament.

Speaking of either golfer’s trademarks Tiger seems to have achieved iconic status here as well. The many applications for the term TIger Woods, have been mostly registered by the ETW Corporation which I believe stands for the full name of Tiger Woods (Eldrick Tiger Woods).

The application of TIGER WOODS bearing the trademark serial number of 75553982 filed with description, Computer game software featuring golf in the year 1998 would be celebrating its eleventh anniversary now.

Also not far behind is Phil Mickelson, who has trademarked his name, under the description, Entertainment in the nature of competitions in the field of golf; entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a sports celebrity; providing a website on a global computer network featuring information about appearances, accomplishments, exploits and biography of a professional golfer. The application bears the trademark serial number 78830865.

From Golf to Trademarks, there always new revelations to be had and new relations to be made.
