    Default WWE no longer owns ECW trademark

    - An LLC based out of New York named "Mocker" registered to trademark "ECW" for wrestling use in March. WWE apparently let the trademark slip, and the registration was assigned to an examiner earlier this week.

    That's either on purpose or an incredibly foolish mistake. I'll go for the latter.

    Is this just the moniker ECW, or the term Extreme Championship Wrestling?

    Its a work for an upcoming Paul Heyman/Brock Lesnar angle.

    Probably just the moniker, but I'd still think that would pose a problem in releasing old ECW material in the future (although I'm not a legal guy and don't have extensive knowledge of that stuff).

    And the worst part?

    This 'Mocker' guy is probably just some guy looking to make a quick buck by advertising 'ECW' in New York.

    Why won't it die?!!!!!!!!


    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    Pissed is an understatement.

    Vince is gonna be going into unfunny parody on RAW mode. That's how severe this is.

    I wonder if Shane Douglas is behind this. I have been curious as to how they obtained the rights to use the word "Extreme" all of a sudden. They previously weren't allowed to do that for the Hardcore Reunion shows. Now he's putting on shows called "Extreme Reunion", and "Extreme Rising".

    I highly doubt he is, but I bet he's kicking himself in the ass for not jumping on it.

    Maybe somebody will start an Extreme Combat Worldwide fed(Paul Heyman's original idea before Extreme Championship Wrestling in 94).

    Mocker is an obvious acronym, meaning someone REALLY doesn't want Vince to know who he/she is.

    Which implys a current/former WWE employee.

    Delayed double post... odd...

    Anyway. It would make a weird kind of sense. CrankyVince is mocking Vince. Mocker stole ECW from Vince, ergo Mocking him by beating him at his own game.

    We may have stumbled across a C-O-N...SPIRICY!

    The people in the Titan Towers who keep an eye on this stuff probably stopped paying attention. Who would want to keep an eye on Shane Douglas? Bleh.

    Speaking of trademarks, they failed to trademark 'Ryback' too.

    Oh great. Why won't this fucking shit die already. This better not lead to the annoying ECW chants again.

    And Vince is totally gonna rage fire Ryder over this for no reason

    Filing Date: March 29, 2012

    Mocker is not a person. Mocker LLC is a company that buys and sells trademarks aka patent troll.

    Mocker LLC owns the letters ECW.

    Vince however owns the trademark design, the name and the rights to use ECW in anything associated with One Night Stand.

    So Vince meets a patent troll. He will buy the name back for a small sum and all will be as it was. Or he will sue the fuck out of the company and they will drop the trademark claim.

    Didn't something similar happen a few years ago with the AWA trademark, but WWE sued and won because they had original and legal claim to it?
