What do you think?
I think this can belong to /biz/
I've been using a particular username since 2003-2004 all over the internet forums and there's this one guy who, for god knows what reason, decided to register a facebook account using the username in question back in 2011.
I've been thinking how likely would it be for me to sue this guy for a reasonably huge amount of money if I registered the username as a trademark and proved the court that I came up with it in 2003?
The guy is posting retarded /b/ style stuff on his Facebook profile continuously so I could claim it's hurting the image of my business.
It's a combination of letters and not a regular dictionary word, so that should work for my advantage.
I will probably ask the same question from a lawyer too if I'm considering it seriously, but I just wanted to ask here first. I don't want to waste money on a trademark registration unless I can be 70%+ sure it will be profitable.
just sue whatever moves, maybe you can get a penny out of it.
did u register the username in 2003?
if yes, why the hell would u do that?
if no then forget about your silly idea.
I still have accounts opened in different forums that are currently active and the account registration dates go back as far as 2003. I definitely could provide proof that it's my username. It's just not a trademark right now which is the only thing that matters.
I believe AND COULD BE WRONG that you would probably have to demonstrate that you have used this name to make money at some point. Then you could register and send him a cease and desist, but I doubt you could retroactively sue him.
Where's the biz lawyers at?
Does anyone here work at emirates??
Need help with some shit..
Hey, /biz/, question to you: how viable it is to buy something BRAND NEW compared to USED?
For instance, it would be much cheaper to buy a used car, but at the same time it can have some hidden faults in it. BUT at the same time you're saving a lot of money on it.
Same goes for other products, really.
So what's your take on this: should we save money and buy USED stuff or buy something NEW and not worry about any sudden pitfalls in quality and shit?
Depends on what it is. There's no one size fits all here.
Sometimes buy computers/laptops used is a good choice.
Buying cars used is always a good choice.
Buying used clothes can be good, sometimes great things can be bought for quite cheap. Namely suits from a thriftstore. Sure it's not brand name or bespoke but for like $20 you can get something that usually looks pretty decent. Good if you're just memeing it
Ethereum is probably the future of money
Right now you can buy 10 ETH for $10
If (IF) it does become future money, it could be worth about $500/ETH
If it doesn't you can sell them back for $10.
Why isn't everyone doing this?
shit bro that's a good point. i did a quick google search, skimmed through the first link and the wiki, and then i remembered how i missed out on the bitcoin train.
not making that mistake again. i'm gonna pump a couple of grand into this shit and become a millionaire just by sitting on my ass!
thanks for the heads up man.

Okay /biz/ WW3 just fucking started.
Is there anyway I can fund both sides of the war given this does not become a nuclear holocaust?
I'm seriously thinking about buying 100 oz silver bar as an investment and would like your opinions. My only plan is to buy low sell high.
what programming language is the most /biz/?
WELL? Is it a TARGET school?
WILL this school get me a job at the GOLDMAN?
The only factor I can think of is if people lose faith in the monetary system and think some type of doomsday is going to come so they exchange fiat currency for currency with intrinsic value like gold.
Apart from this why the hell would gold/silver rise/fall? pretty confused, but it also seems volatile and a good place to try your luck
What's the viability of starting a business selling video games? Like an actual store with racks and such? Would it be futile with a company like Gamestop and websites like Amazon out there?
Yes, because they buy millions of copies for really low prices, no company is gonna sell you 10 copies for the same price
now if you've got 10 billion dollars laying around, and want to open up a bunch of fucking stores all over the country or the world, and can get a bunch of people together that are famous, then yes, it can be extremely lucrative
>have one bank account all my life, for over 8 years
>no issues, overdrafts, or problems of any sort
>decide to open another checking account with Charles schwab because of their ATM fee reimbursement
>get denied the account because of an ,issue' with chexsystems
What the motherfucking cocksucking chode-licking bullshit is this? From what I've read online, chexsystems only denies people who are suspected of fraud or overdraft accounts...

What kind of full-time job can a 25 year old with no experience in anything except customer service do?
Post office is hiring countrywide. If you're not a sperg, in relatively good shape and even have the tiniest bit college or customer service experience (which you do) you'll likely be able to take their exam.
I need help on a school project in which we need to choose whether my group and I should build a Tesla light truck company in either IRreland, China, or the U.S. and wh. So far we got Ireland due to its low cost in producing a plant and its taxes. Any help would be appreciated.
