I have my Maine Trademark approval. So Krampert's Finest is over that smallest of hurdles.

The US trademark has been applied for with the Patent Office (USPTO).

And here's a huge hint about what I was tiptoeing all around in a previous post. My EU trademark has been applied for with "The Office of Harmonization" of something or other. Don't ask, but yes it probably means what you think it does. "My" EU people are all excited about what comes next. It has been a very long process and you have no idea how many times I almost threw in the towel as just not being worth doing. The various state agencies that are there to help small businesses hadn't a clue, so basically I had to learn what to do and how to do it all on my own. Without an avenue being shown to me by one gent it might never have happened. Thanks Steve! And it's all being done legally and right up front. I did get offers to circumvent the laws of the EU but the world is a very small place today and it just isn't worth it IMO.

There should be more to follow quite soon. I should think within a month; but it's all coming together.
