I have been selling NATO straps on the Internet & e Bay for 5 years . Recently a vendor trademarked " NATO strap " along with everything else he could think of to put NATO in front of . I changed my listings from " NATO strap " to " G10 military strap as worn by our NATO forces " . I also use " G10 strap for issued military watch from any NATO country " . He has e Bay remove these new listings for violating his trademark . I don't think I'm violating any trademark with these listings . e Bay does no research at all . If someone claims a listing violates their trademark , e Bay pulls it and after a few pulled listings , you are banned from e Bay . I am planning to file a counter notice . The trademark owner is in Ohio and I am in GA . I don't think he will take me to court . But if he does , is my case valid ?
