A: HO'OPONOPONO is a Hawaiian exercise for reconciliation and forgiveness. The current trademark registration 5716359 is for bracelets in International Class 014, which includes precious metals, jewelry, and watches. Use of the mark for acrylic paintings would not infringe this registration. Paintings, whether in oil, acrylic or watercolor, are goods in International Class 016. There was an application in 2005 to register HO'OPONOPONO for books and guides in Class 016, but it was abandoned. A new application to register the mark as used in Class 016 may succeed.
