Maybe I can file for a figurative mark and then Confuse someone into giving up their word mark by using various tactics so they may just cave into my demands as if I have Word Mark protection. Then, I don’t have to obtain a Word Mark and still have the upper hand. (Scenario Example of Actual Situation)
There are fine line meaninigs between the both differences of what a figurative mark is compared to a word mark.
A Figurative Mark is represented using pictures, graphics or images.
A Word Mark is represented using words, letters, numbers or any other charactrrs that can be typed.
