A: To ascertain if "TNO" is trademarked and who currently holds the rights, you should search the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) database. Trademarks can be country-specific, and the fact that a brand is trademarked in the UK does not automatically mean it is protected in the United States. If it is indeed trademarked in the U.S., the USPTO records will list the owner. Should the mark be available, you can then apply for it in the U.S., but consider seeking advice from an attorney to navigate the application process effectively and to understand the full scope of trademark protection and potential international implications.
