    Quick update. Today, the UK's IPO (Intellectual Property Office) has confirmed that the application appears to meet all the requirements, and there are no clashes with other trademarks.

    And we are proceeding to the next step: the application will be published in their online Trade Marks Journal for opposition purposes. When published, there will be a 2 month opposition period in which anybody can oppose its registration.

    Great Sunday all!! H

    p.s. Interesting to see that the IPO works also on Sunday :)

    You've got a nice business set up there :) Congratulations!! What are you using for accepting payments? .. it seems you have pretty low margins and commissions on those low £1 payments must be high.

    Thanks, we are selling out every week with a nice 40% margin.

    We sold out a World Poker Tour event last week 3 days early. A £2k package for £5! We’re genuinely offering players ‘a new way to win’ big money poker experiences, without having to spend hours grinding online satellites or beat the pros, who have a clear edge.

    I think the first two minutes of this video tells you exactly why we’ve got all of the big live operators wanting to do business with us. Not bad for a two month old side hustle to a side hustle.

    ps - we pay a low I+ flat percentage with zero processing fees. Happy to share details privately.

    A face for radio I think is the expression!

    For anyone who might have seen my original thread in search of a domain name for a competitions website (and the many who messaged me), the above is what I settled on.

    The domain name was unregistered as a dot com, dot co uk, and dot uk, in both singular and plural forms. It was also free on FB, X and Insta, plus I’ve been able to register it as a trademark.

    Sometimes you just get lucky…

    That's what you use until it's registered. Then you use ®, meaning registered.

    All the best

    Yes, TM means you have a trademark that hasn't been registered. Trademarks don't need to be registered hence the widespread use of TM.

    Yes, I need to update the assets as I’m not using a registered (or TM) mark on site or our stream yet.
