MEDIA ADVISORY, May 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- Randall Terry has filed suit with Trademark Trial and Appeals Board to cancel false registration of "Operation Rescue" by Mr. Troy Newman. Mr. Terry seeks to regain control of the name Operation Rescue, which is his moniker.
Mr. Troy Newman lied under oath to the Trademark Office when he filed his registration of the name, Operation Rescue. Moreover, Mr. Newman has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars by falsely claiming a connection with Operation Rescue.
Press conference: 11:00 A.M., Thursday, May 29, The Patent and Trademark Office is at 600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, VA, 22311
Randall A. Terry, Founder, Operation Rescue;
Michael Culver, Attorney, Specializing in Trademark law, and intellectual property.
To be given to the press:
1) The legal pleadings filed in the case (filed Tuesday, May 27, 2008);
2) Printed booklet of history of Operation Rescue, including the proof that Mr. Newman lied under oath when he claimed ownership of the name, Operation Rescue;
3) Trademark law, which shows why Mr. Newman will lose this case, because he knowingly took the name Operation Rescue, and has thereby falsely claimed a connection with Randall Terry, the Founder of Operation Rescue.
4) The Jimmy Buffett, Twiggy, Bo Jackson, and Marc Chagall case law; which all have the similar facts and law, and in which each of the above public figures retained the right to the "mark" [name, moniker, slogan] they made famous, even though someone else tried to trademark that name.
Mr. Michael Culver, Mr. Terry's attorney, states: "Mr. Newman is simply a squatter on intellectual property that he does not own. This proceeding at the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the Patent and Trademark Office is intended to oust Mr. Newman from the identity that rightfully belongs to Randall Terry."
Randall Terry states: "Mr. Newman mistook my patience for a lack of resolve. His identity theft of a name, a heritage, and a history over which he has no right is as offensive as it is ludicrous."
