In response to the civil action filed against us this week for the use of our Shiphead trademark (registered on July 21st, 2015) we offer the following comment: Logboat denies that its SHIPHEAD mark infringes any trademark rights of Shipyard Brewing Company. Logboat’s SHIPHEAD GINGER WHEAT trademark was registered by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office following examination by a Trademark Examiner, and successfully passed through the public opposition phase. Logboat’s mark was never challenged during the registration process as being likely to cause confusion with the trademark of any other party.
