Posts Tagged ‘Litecoin trademark application


It seems that someone is attempting to trademark the word “Litecoin” in Europe and the Litecoin Association is looking for help from users in order to object to the ‘bad’ trademark application. Interestingly enough the trademark application has absolutely nothing to do with crypto currencies and is not related to the Litecoin (LTC) crypto currency. There is a dedicated website accepting donations in Bitcoin and Litecoin (unfortunately not providing a lot of details and not very professionally made) as well as an IndieGoGo campaign. The goal is to collect the required €350 which is the fee for filing an opposition with OHIM – the organization responsible for handling trademark issues in the European Union. Any additional funds over the required fee that are collected will be used to trademark Litecoin on behalf of Mr Charlie Lee and if granted, open up the trademark for everyone worldwide to use.
