List of Bevis controlled trademarks

Refused marks:

  • Master Title Deed (refused mark, link to be updated)
  • EHIC (applied for “Class 45: Document validation services” on 28 February 2011. Quote Peter Bevis’s application: “The rights conferred in the registration of this mark are limited to the specific service of checking online applications for the European Health Insurance Card for errors prior to forwarding the application to the person or organisation responsible for providing the European Health Insurance Card.”)
  • E111 (applied for “Class 45: Document validation services” on 28 February 2011.

  • ESTA (applied for “Class 42: Hosting computer sites [websites]”. – What was the plan with this mark, one wonders?)

  1. You’d have to wonder if it is possible to get a trademark for a laird “title” if laird is actually a title at all? I would not imagine it would be possible to trademark a lord or lady title as these are real titles. I think the fact that it is possible to trademark a phrase starting with the word laird, would indicate that it is not a title at all!

    If you define laird as “a landowner” using it in that way would not indicate it as a title, just a description of someone who owns land, in the same way as cobbler would describe a shoemaker who repairs shoes. That definition does nor say it is a title which may be used by someone who own land, does it?

    • The Lord Lyon doesn’t recognise the term Laird as a title, but he does have the authority when granting arms to recognise (or prohibit) a territorial designation, which is how Scottish lairds are distinguished. Scottish lairds don’t go round calling them selves “Laird of First Name + Surname plus Territory” – that is a marketing myth dreamed up by Highland Titles so that they can replace it with “Lord/Lady”. Copyrighting the term “Laird of Sketraw” as a trademark, therefore, is just a puerile attempt at identity theft as Sketraw would never use it himself.

      It is just further proof that these people are no more than scammers.
