Springfield Gardens, NY (PressExposure) August 18, 2015 -- The United States Patent and Trademark Office recently made a controversial decision to approve the trademark application for the phrase 'Job Seekers Club'. Job Seekers Club looks like a descriptive mark. A descriptive mark is a term with a dictionary meaning which is used in connection with products or service directly related to that meaning. Such terms are usually not registrable unless it can be shown that distinctive character has been established.
The man behind the trademark application is Timur Naimat, owner of Job Seekers Club. The company provides a website using the domain name http://www.jobseekers.club which is rapidly growing into the world's leading web-based job search engine and job board. It's a popular and in-demand service that is designed to support the needs of job seekers globally.
However, the approval of the term Job Seekers Club as a trademark has left some people questioning the decision.
We spoke to Timur Naimat recently and asked him why the company decided to apply for a trademark for such a popular and frequently used phrase.
"We wanted to establish the brand and be clear about what it is we offer" Mr. Naimat told us. "While I understand there are clubs operating that use the term (and may be unhappy with the trademark approval) - I believe we have done the right thing. Apart from the fact this is a legal step we have taken to secure the trademark - it's also a step that will help to establish the brand and our website in the mind of potential job seekers. That can only be a good thing!"
With a growing need for global Job Search and an ever changing workplace - the Job Seekers Club website will have its work cut out to live up to its new found trademark.
But with Mr. Naimat driving the business forward we're sure the brand will continue to stake its claim in the job seeking world.
