We’ll be talking about how Chris took many of life’s lessons learned on the football field and applied them to start and build his successful company, IceShaker.com

Chris’ life journey included catching passes and scoring touchdowns at the University of Arizona and NFL, to successfully pitching his business on Shark Tank where he scored another TD by making a big deal with Mark Cuban and Alex Rodriguez.

Three New Client Expectations in a COVID-19 World

My thoughts on meeting client expectations as a lawyer, or business owner, based upon my 2020 experience and, what I see happening in 2021.

What do you think? What would you add or disagree with? Just curious.

Four Seasons Total Landscaping Trademark Issues

WHAT BUSINESS OWNERS NEED TO LEARN FROM THE RUDY GIULIANI “FOUR SEASONS TOTAL LANDSCAPING” PRESS CONFERENCE. What’s a Trademark and How Can You Protect Yours?


My interview this week is with Stephen Stanwood, an Intellectual Property and Trademark Law attorney. The topic crystalized for me after watching the one and only Rudy Giuliani give his now infamous rant from the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot in Philadelphia. You know, the parking lot between an adult book and sex toy store and a crematorium. Apparently he and others confused the name with another venue we all know as the Four Seasons Hotel.

In addition to giving me a good laugh, and I wasn’t alone– see this TikTok video I shared on Facebook, the confusion got me to thinking about whether or not “Four Seasons Total Landscaping” could even legally use the term, “Four Seasons” in its name without violating the intellectual property trademark rights of the “Four Seasons” hotel properties.

Is this OK?

What are the laws?

Can they use this name in creating and selling merchandise?

How do the courts balance consumer confusion and IP violations in these types of cases? What are the damages, if any?

If you own a business, how can you protect your business name so that Rudy doesn’t show up unannounced? Just kidding but you know what I mean.

Well, this Monday at 1 pm PDT (4 pm ET), trademark lawyer, Stephen Stanwood, will share his thoughts on these questions, and more, as a guest on my live video show. Share with your friends and get your questions ready to ask Stephen live!

Stephen and I will dive deep on Monday and make sure that by the time we’re done, everyone watching will understand who owns the name of their company and, what needs to be done to protect your company name from being used by other people.

Join us live on Facebook, Twitter, Periscope, LinkedIn and YouTube this Monday at 4 pm ET. You can watch live or recorded via all the links at https://streaming.lawyer or jump directly over to Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/mitchjackson.live
