Q: Game name: SEABORG but Seaborg trademark is already claimed. Is it possible for me to publish the game under same name?
Robert Kost
Robert Kost answered on Dec 27, 2021

It all depends on what classification(s) the other "Seaborg" names are registered under. Just as there is an "Apple Bank" and an "Apple Computer", the Seaborg mark may be available for your game. You should hire an attorney to help you dig into this. Good luck!
