A: Reg. 3571870 for the mark DEFYE used on apparel was cancelled in 2015 for failure to file a statement of continuing use. That does not necessarily mean the owner ceased using the mark, but even if still is, your use of DEFYE (or the homonym DEAF EYE etc) would not be infringing. You should consult an experienced trademark attorney to advise regarding the use and registration of your proposed mark.
