Trademark Investigations & Brand Infringement – Conan takes on China

February 29th, 2012 Comments off

Brand infringement comes in all shapes and sizes and a trademark investigation can uncover all sorts, but even an opening of a late night talk show?  A show in China blatantly rips off Conan’s opening titles – check it out on CNN here.

AFI International has expertise in conducting investigations on behalf of companies, lawyers and trademark agents regarding trademark violations and infringements of various kinds, but admittedly we have never been contracted by a late night show host, a market we maybe overlooked!

Thank you to HRmarketer!

February 23rd, 2012 Comments off

I received an excellent email this morning – I had won an iPad from HRmarketer after sending a tweet about their SocialEars service that we have been utilizing for IMAC and AFI and was entered into a draw.

While conducting marketing research for services related to our IMAC Labor Dispute and Work Stoppage conference, our Online Training Academy and services related to strike security we had used the SocialEars service.  It has paid off in more ways now with the iPad win!

The iPad will surely come in handy for our Creative Department to ensure compatibility on all client systems while developing our latest social media investigations, capability videos and other marketing media.

Tiquan Underwood is the polar opposite of a high risk termination, and should in fact be the poster of how someone should leave a job.  New England released Tiquan the evening before the Super Bowl…Ouch!  But here is Tiquan’s Twitter post “Good Luck To The New England Organization, The Coaches, & All My Teammates…”  Tiquan was a class act, especially given the situation.  NYG 21 NE 17

Pats cut Underwood on Super Bowl eve

By Alex Marvez

Tiquan Underwood is drawing Super Bowl XLVI attention because of a different kind of cut.

The New England Patriots waived the backup wide receiver on the eve of Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Underwood – who arrived in Indianapolis with a Patriots logo shaved in the back of his wild hi-top fade – is being replaced by practice-squad defensive end Alex Silvestro.

Such last-minute roster decisions are common for the Patriots as the franchise shapes its game-day roster. A source told FOXSports.com that Underwood’s release was “totally a football decision” and not related to any off-field problems involving Underwood at the Super Bowl.

Still, the timing of Underwood’s release has come across publically as cold considering he practiced with the team all week as well as the magnitude of Sunday’s game.

Silvestro, who was signed as a rookie college free agent from Rutgers, will likely be activated for Super Bowl XLVI to provide defensive line depth. He played in one game this season, registering two tackles against Miami in December.  Read more…
