Ramey & Schwaller successfully opposed the registration of Ojai Natural Foods, Inc.'s trademark application for “Seeds for Bees”, application no. 87/292184. Project Apis m. v. Ojai Natural Foods, Inc., TTAB Opp. No. 91236690 (Jan. 8, 2018). Our client Project Apis m. (PAm) uses its trademark mark “Seeds for Bees” for its program to promote collaboration within the scientific, research, and provider communities to achieve advances in bee and soil health and bee forage described at https://www.projectapism.org/seeds-for-bees-home.html. This result allows PAm to continue using its senior “Seeds for Bees” trademark without risk of confusion in the marketplace.
Project Apis m. funds and directs research to enhance the health and vitality of honey bee colonies while improving crop production. Its name comes from Apis mellifera, the scientific name for the honey bee. www.projectapism.org
