Can something be un-trademarked?

December 14, 2010

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your editorial on the trademarking of Hon ("A trademark too far," Dec. 14)! And a big thanks to Dan Rodricks for his column as well ("Trademark? You don't own me, hon," Dec. 14)! I was appalled when I read about the trademarking of "hon" in the paper the other day, and I am glad you all are standing against it!

Is there anyway to get "hon" un-trademarked? If there were a public vote, I would vote that hon never should have been trademarked in the first place. I don't know anything about trademarking, but is there some kind of appeal process?

Anyway, thanks again! I appreciate it, and I bet lots of other people do, too!
