I checked for DeLorean trademarks on the US Patent and
Trademark web site: http://www.uspto.gov
. What I found was quite interesting!
trademark search (11/2008) for "Delorean" produced seven listings, three are registered
trademarks, and five are abandoned.
The logo for the DeLorean Owners
Association is an active registered trademark.
The DeLorean Theater is a new
(1/2008) filing, apparently for a New York movie theater. It
is (11/2008) listed as active.
The "DMC" stylized logo (as used on
the grill of the car) is an active registered trademark of The
DeLorean Motor Company. It applies to automobiles and
structural parts, and to automobile dealerships.
The "Concours Delorean"
stylized logo service mark is listed as abandoned. It applied to automobile
shows, and was used by DeLorean
The stylized 'DELOREAN" logo in
the characteristic DeLorean font (as used on the hood of my
DeLorean) was listed twice, but both are abandoned. It was applied
for (11/2000) by "Ephesians 6:12 Incorporated", a Nevada
corporation with a business address at a post office box in
Bedminster, NJ! The trademark was later (1/2004) registered
Motor Company, Houston. In their application is dated Dec
2003, the DeLorean Motor Company claimed the
logo for use on magazines, jewelry, watches, clothing, and fitted
car covers. The mark was abandoned in December 2005.
In the 11/2000 application, Ephesians 6:12 claimed the trademark for use
with cosmetics (perfume and after shave), eyeglasses, clothing,
watches, and a litany of automobile categories, both
complete cars and parts (from airbags to windows)! The
application recognized that DELOREAN is the name of a living
person, and that their "consent is of record."
Ephesians 6:12 also filed for the
trademark "DeLorean Automobile Company" in
September 2004! This makes it reasonable to conclude that
Ephesians 6:12, Inc. was created to produce the "New DeLorean."
In case you forgot, or can't find
your bible, the text (KJV) of Ephesians 6:12 is:
[6:12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].
I think John was telling us something!
I recently read in the
Newslist about a
by "Ecclesiastes 9:10-11-12, Inc." The author of the message asked if that
company was set up to produce the new DeLorean. "Ecclesiates"
was the new name of Logan Manufacturing Company, manufacturer
of snow grooming equipment, also started by DeLorean. The name
changed after John sold the assets of Logan. Logan/Ecclesiastes
owned by DeLorean Manufacturing Company. DeLorean
Manufacturing was owned by Cristina Corp. John DeLorean was the only
shareholder or Cristina! I have no idea where Ephesians 6:12, Inc
Here's the text of Ecclesiastes
[9:10] Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou
[9:11] I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race [is] not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
[9:12] For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so [are] the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
What do you think John was trying to
tell us here?
