Gibsonia, PA asked in Trademark for Pennsylvania

Q: I have some questions about trademark and copyright laws about BTS South Korean band of Big Hit Entertainment.

It says The mark consists of the stylizes wording “BTS” and color is not claimed as a feature of the mark.

Does that mean I can use the word BTS if it’s in colors.

A: No

on the contrary, when a mark does not claim colors, basically it is claiming any variation of shades and colors.

Stay away from them, specially if you are going to be using it for similar products or services (music, production, videos, clothing, etc.)

Consult with an attorney to understand better your risks and potential opportunities.
