Fun Photo Guys® Receives Official Registered Service Mark from the USPTO

Fun Photo Guys®, a professional photography company based in Pleasant Hill, California, announced today that it was awarded Certificate of Registration number 3507940 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on September 30, 2008 for its Service Mark, Fun Photo Guys®.

This registration establishes Fun Photo Guys® legal ownership of the name, establishes a brand identity in the marketplace, and demonstrates that Fun Photo Guys® claim to the term is unique, unusual, distinctive, and has been established through consistent long-term use.

The records of the USPTO show that an application for registration of “Fun Photo Guys®” filed in early 2008 was examined and determined to be in compliance with the requirements of the law and with the regulations prescribed by the Director of the USPTO; and that Fun Photo Guys® is entitled to registration of the "Fun Photo Guys®” mark under the Trademark Act of 1946.

Businesses use Service Marks to identify their services and distinguish them from others in their field. Trademarks, by contrast, are used to distinguish competing products, not services. Trademarks are normally affixed to a product by a label; Service Marks are displayed through websites, advertising and promotional materials.

Kevin Slovick, Co-founder, stated “Receiving the Registered Service Mark further solidifies our brand identity and distinguishes us as truly being Fun Photo Guys®”. Kevin added “We have spent a lot of time, money and energy in promoting our name as a company that quickly provides high-quality digital images to our customers. Our registered Service Mark will help to distinguish us from others who might use confusingly similar names, particularly on the Internet.”
