Sometimes the little guy wins against the big guy. According to a BBC Article the Trump Empire started to have issues over the use of the iTrump name in 2011. iTrump is a Trumpet simulator app. The Trump attorneys alleged that the trumpet simulator’s name falsely suggested a link to the tycoon.
The iTRump app developer, Tom Scharfeld, won this claim and then went after the Trump Organization over the exclusive use of the “Trump” trademark in connection with computer games, golf-related mobile apps and music streaming. The Trump organization lost this key trademark fight this past week for these software items.
Mr. Scharfeld represented himself in this legal battle against Trump’s attorneys.
