Thank you in advance.
My company's name is "Daily Zen Bento," and we operate in San Francisco, California.
I have recently received a cease and desist letter to discontinue the usage of this name
by ZB Incorporated (Zen Bento), an Idaho corporation that does not operate in California.
I have read Daniel Ballard's comment in the page:
The federal registration does NOT confer on the registrant the right to prevent all others from using the mark in geographic areas where the registrant is not using the mark (and, therefore, where the registrant owns no trademark rights).
I'd like to know if Daniel Ballard is correct in this matter.Additional info: Zen Bento is registered to be used for fast food and restaurant service. Our company offers a catering service. They also want us to discontinue our domain name, www.dailyzenbento.com. If I am correct, they would need to buy the domain from us, is this correct?
