Dear all,

I am a student and would like to create a website that discusses a business method. The name of this business method is a registered trademark in the US. It is registered at The US patent and trademark office with "software", "workbooks" and "courses" discussing this method.

Would it be possible for me to start a website explaining this method and use this name with it, and earn money on the side through Google ads? Or would that be infringement of the trademark?

I mean, software, workbooks and courses are something different than a website. But stil...:) You would use someone else's trademark.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.

Legal advice is the application of abstract principles of law to the concrete facts of the client's case in order to advise the client about what they should do next. In many countries, only a properly licensed lawyer may provide legal advice to clients for good consideration, even if no lawsuit is contemplated or is in progress.
