Ocean Telecom Services - Think different 

Followup to my post on the Ontario Technoblog. I figured that Cisco had a clear case, but I just read a post that caused me to think different (heh):

In order to keep a trademark alive, you have to file a “Declaration of Use” with the US Patent and Trademark office every six years or forfeit the trademark. On 11/16/2005 Cisco missed that deadline, but was granted a six month grace period, which it just barely squeezed through. Unfortunately for Cisco, a “Declaration of Use” requires demonstration of active use, under penalty of perjury. Cisco merely slapped an iPhone sticker onto an existing VoIP handset it was producing , but at the time hadn’t put an actual iPhone product on shelves for a good long while. This jeopardizes the legitimacy of the trademark, and with Ocean Telecom Services LLC — which is thought by most to be a front company for Apple — next in line for the name, it’s looking like anyone’s game at this point.

Also see something in over 1,000 news reports here.
