    The trademark application process requires a company/person to write down when a trademark was first put in commercial usage. In Howard's case it was when he published his web site. The trademark office hires freelance lawyers (financed by the application fee which is about $275) to examine each application. The most common proof of publication is the commercial usage of the name on a web site. The trademark lawyer will go over the application, click on the link, and contact Howard's lawyer if they have any questions. The process takes several months and up to 6. Once the trademark is approved Howard's lawyer will be mailed the trademark certificate. Unfortunately after the certificate is issued Howard will have ample legal grounds to go after (shut down) anyone who uses Conlon Road or Colon Road or Hershey Highway Photography or whatever as he could claim trademark infringement.

    Frequently when people are registering a new trademark they create a quickie web site. Then in the future they roll out a slicker site. My guess is Howard probably had someone who works for him buy a cheap $50 flash template and throw up a rough site. I can't imagine that Howard would create a site without hiring a pro or having one of his editor contacts in publishing proof his copy.

    Or I'm totally fucking wrong, and the web site is just the latest symptom of Howard's egomaniacal personality.

    What's the backstory on this? I'm kind of in the dark on this one.

    Someone said his teacher uses the same host, so maybe it's just part of the lessons.

    Hiya Lucas Boy. The only book I'd plug to you is the only book you ever tried to read, Moby Dick. And the only reason you tried to read that title was you thought it was a homo-erotic porno book about your favorite musician -- Moby. Now run along and clean out a stable or something you N-lovin hat wearing faygala you.

    Steve McQueen was an egomaniacal personality.

    That's not the problem with Howard. Being the Jew Ryan Seacrest is.

    And from whom did you lift that witticism? We all know you're nowhere near being remotely clever.

    I don't know why you care if I join in on the fun in this forum. Over the last 6 months I have barely averaged 2 posts a week. I lifted the witticism last Saturday when I was out with your Dad and Ronnie Mund banging whores in Spanish Harlem. Your Dad passed out on Conchita's chest and there was this piece of paper in his back pocket labeled "Top Ten Ways to Rank Out A Retard." This one was number 10, so you better watch out or I'll lay 1-9 on your sorry honky cracker ass!

    I think we're talking about a symptom of Howard's egomaniacal personality either way.

    You do realize that the person in the avatar is not a representation of the person posting right? I smell shit piles in your future.

    Lucas Boy, I'll add this info to my list of 1 million things I don't give a shit about. However, if you dislike me, then it's pretty stupid to constantly seek out my every post to reply to. I mean of my 55 posts over 6 months, replies to your replies to my posts comprise 20 percent. So all your replies are accomplishing is more interaction with me. And while I'm flattered, perhaps even a little curious, I'm sorry but I'm straight and don't play on your team -- you might want to pm your pal Jeton for that kind of water sports.

    Yeah that was me. I traced it all back -- his teacher, Doug Gordon, runs his own site and 23 others including Howard's all on the same shared webhosting account, and apparently ALL with the same lousy Flash-only free template. All the gnarly technical details are in the longer thread.

    But with the trademark crap it's not just "lessons" -- he's simply using his teacher's account as a quick and very cheap way to set this stuff up.

    I don't respond to your every post, dopey. Just your dumb threads, and whichever posts thereafter that apply to me.

    Pretty obvious he set up the site for legal reasons so that anyone using his photos must have "explicit permission from owner."

    He's probably trying to get permission from his daughter to get her photos, too. He'll use a little photoshopping to replace the girl she's kissing with one of Beth's NSAL puppies.

    So you're saying this is all a roundabout way to go after fan photoshops?

    But aren't photoshops protected? Technically, they're not the *original* image anymore, and since it's Howard & Beth, aren't shops covered by the whole "parody" umbrella?
