“Flasher” is the name of a quick-drying glue in Mexico, for which the owner, Erik Boughton Garza is seeking to trademark the name under “fast drying glue for many uses”.
This registration looks like it may be opposed by DC Comics, as Warners lawyer Christopher Jackson has applied for an extension to oppose the trademark to the end of March, which has been granted.
And while DC Comics are certainly well within their rights to protect their own trademarks – indeed it is their duty to do so, it does mean that DC and Warners probably need to show they are using the name Flash… with or without that lightning squiggle in the adhesive market.
Or someone similar.
