The US Patent & Trademark Office won’t allow us to trademark our brand Comfyballs due to the inclusion of the word “balls”, which is deemed to be vulgar. We can think of many vulgar words describing this particular part of the male body, but “balls” is not among them. We hope the general american public agrees.
We’ve made a short film to underline our point, and see if going to the extreme and showing normal and unretouched dangling balls would be sickening or vulgar. Our verdict is NO.
The point is of course that even if we were to show balls on the packaging, which we won’t, you could argue whether this would be vulgar or not. As it is now our super comfortable underwear is nicely designed and exclusively produced for discerning men, also in the US. The word “balls” is part of the american vernacular describing among other things guts or courage. We hope of course even the US Patent & Trademark Office will show some of those, if not on film.
Our «new name» contest is now completed. We´ll announce the winners at www.facebook.com/comfyballs shortly.
