MP008 Markenpod – Marken in den USA – Interview mit Ken Suzan

10. Dezember 2017

Ken SuzanThema ist diesmal Marken in den USA. Ich habe den Markenanwalt Ken Suzan aus den USA zu Gast. Daher führen wir das Interview auf Englisch.

Rolf Claessen – English: Since our virtual owner of a dance studio Maria Musica has grown her first studio into a nationwide successful chain of dance studios, she is thinking of expanding to the US for teaching traditional dances like Waltz, Foxtrot, etc. She already found a nice vacant dance studio in Minneapolis for rent and now wants to protect her trademark Marimba in the US. Since I am not a US trademark attorney, I am glad that I am joined by Ken Suzan in Minneapolis, trademark attorney at Barnes & Thornburg LLP with offices all over the US. He is an experienced trademark prosecutor. Before his current position, he was partner of the firm Hodgson & Russ and headed the trademark department. He received his J.D. from Albany Law School and holds a masters degree from the New York University. Beside his recent appearance in the Wall Street Journal, he is a prolific writer of articles in various magazines and journals. Ken, good to have you here in the podcast! Thanks for joining me!
