    'We call on Mr. Resch to surrender the illegally and maliciously obtained trademarks immediately."....

    or we will sue him for $4k a day until he does... ironic isnt it.

    Whether he can legally keep them or not, this is hilarious.

    It is funny and a bit surprised (if all is true) that he was able to register these 2 words as these words are too common to register. There are quite some B&B's in Spain that are called Awake (in Spanish). Same for watchtower. Too generic. The font and symbol can be registered if it is unique enough. I believe anyone can start a magazine and call it AWAKE NOW or WATCHTOWER MESSAGES. Just use different fonts and do not call it a religious magazine. Erotic underwear may be .... :-)

    Brilliant!

    Since waking up from this cult I find it highly ironic that there's a Jehovah's Witness magazine called Awake!

    Just as brilliant as calling a lie "the truth" ...

    I thought Jehovah owns these trademarks. Very disappointed now.

    The Watchtower’s “2 inch brush” isn’t wide enough to cover this issue.
