Ternovsky Andrey - the fake inventor of chatroulette
About chatroulette.com (owner - Ternovsky Andrey).
Citizen Andrew Ternovsky, using the administrative procedure of WIPO, takes away from the owners of chatroulets their sites. The weaning procedure through WIPO is simple and straightforward - this is not a trial. This is a bunch of home-based fleecers who pay 2000 euros for a bribe - they stamp decisions in your favor. Laws and regulations in your "case" are taken from the ceiling - it could be the right of Guadeloupe, Honduras, Guinea - the choice depends solely on the fact - from which leg the "arbiter" stood today. The statistics of positive decisions of WIPO are 99%. Two rules apply here:
1. who paid 2,000 euros - guaranteed to get good solution
2. the client (claimant) is always right (see point 1)
So, introductory materiel:
The designation “Chatroulette” was commonly used and was in circulation in civil circulation, on the Internet long before the birth of the fake inventor - Ternovsky Andrew.
For example, in 1998, a German citizen Horst Wischnewski first registered the “chatroulette” trademark, which can be checked on the trademark disclosure site, for example - tmdn.org/tmview/welcome.
Later, in the spring of 2005, the German programmer Holger Vogt created a program and service “chatroulette”, which uses the principle of random video connection via webcams via the Internet. He also registered the corresponding domain in 2005 - chatroulette.com (this information can be checked on Whois for the chatroulette domain).
Later, allegedly as a result of theft, - Holger Vogt lost access to the site and the domain chatroulette.com and at the moment the domain is Ternovsky Andrew. Whether the Defendant is related to the kidnapping of the chatroulette.com domain is unknown.
Ternovsky was denied international protection of the "chatroulette" trademark in the United States because of the presence in the United States of other rightholders with the same trademark - "World's Hero AG" and "LLC Wyoming". Ternovsky was denied international protection of the chatroulette trademark in Russia due to the presence in Russia of other rightholders with the same trademark - "Chatroullette Inc" and "Tik & Tok AG" - see wipo.int/branddb/en/.
Now in the world there are at least 5 holders of the designation "chatroulette" - for various individuals and legal entities. Ternovsky owns the conditional trademark on "chatroulette.to" - only on the EU countries. Conventionally - because geographically limited and may be challenged as a commonly used designation.
By itself, registering a trademark for a commonly used term is ideas dubious. Such registration may be canceled by the registration authority in any jurisdiction at the request of any interested person.
This is the same as registering a trademark for the designation “cupboard”, “stool” or “fake inventor”.
