Robert Zelnick was quoted in the August 30 issue of The New York Times in regard to Donald Trump's attempt to register the trademark "You're Fired!" with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. The USPTO has initially rejected Trump's application to register "You're Fired!," because it could cause confusion with "You're Hired!" -- an existing registered trademark for an educational board game designed to give middle-school students a taste for the job hunt. The article reported that legal experts say conflicts were common early in the registration process, as government lawyers scrutinize applications for similarities between the sight, sound and source of the marks. "It's not just a matter that consumers would overlook the difference between the F and the H," Mr. Zelnick commented.
