Am I getting sued? Is bitcoin trademarked?

Hey guys.
I was wondering if there can be legal steps against people who sell physical bitcoins like these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J2B0KEO/
I didn't find anything, only a law suit against a guy who sold those with imprinted BTC addresses which held money on them. (Basically creating a new currency which is illegal).
However selling items like those, I am unsure if this is allowed or not. As for Bitcoin, I'm more optimistic. Coins for Ethereum, Litecoin or other currencies I'am quite sure that you'll get sued by the companies which hold the LLC and trademarks on them.
I would be forever grateful if someone can enlighten me on this. Please excuse my English, I hope it didn't bother you too much.
Thank you guys and have a great Day! (And a great labor day for all of you US guys !:-)

The Satoshi Reveal ... I am in New York City and Smell Bull Shit; this is a Trademark grab to sue anyone using the Bitcoin name.


I am not Satoshi but I have been fighting against unjust regulations for 6 years and this reveal sound just like what happened in 2013 when Lawksy got interested.
I have been following the reveal story and just ran into this tweet that linked to a Trademark application. https://twitter.com/SatoshiReveal/status/1163186455461728256?s=20
This is where the bullshit lies, this reveal is tied to a Trademark application and if we don't pay attention, each company that uses the word Bitcoin would get then sue for monetary use of the trademark Bitcoin.
http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=88570602&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch
If we the Bitcoin community are not gullible, the lawyers at the trademark application office are very much gullible. This reveal could very well be the document that grant this BENJAMIN CAPITAL MANAGEMENT GROUP (Peter Benjamin) the right to sue anyone in the US.
It's a smart move but I call Bull Shit. Now that everyone is ignoring the reveal, in 5 years no one will have realized what it meant but in front of a Jury, every defending lawyer will need to explain why this dude is not Satoshi. Good Luck!
I leave it to anyone else to fight this fight; I really don't have the energy as I am fighting my own battles in the space.
However, I suggest that you all follow the trademark case (see link above) for when a trademark lawyer is appointed and let him know that this dude is a fake and that he doesn't have a trademark claim to the name Bitcoin.

Is the bitcoin artwork copyrighted, trademarked, (or whatever else) or is it public domain?

If you do a google image search for bitcoin, you'll probably see what I'm talking about. There's a lot of variation, but overall it's the same B with two lines through it. Is this owned by someone, or is it free to use on applications and other works that I create?

Founder of Uphold (former Bitreserve) is a trademark troll. In 2014 he secured bit-related trademarks and uses his patents to seize domains and destroy or hinder other bitcoin related businesses.

Due to the recent post regarding uphold threatening to sue Andreas Antonopoulos! I think it's time for me to reveal what happened to me in 2015.
I am the owner of the domain bitreserve.com, registered in February 2011. I was an early adopter of bitcoin and bought the domain with the intention of setting up a wallet service for transferring BTC similarly to what e-gold did back in its days. Due to illness, I did not release the wallet as of now.
A couple of years after I bought the domain, the now bankrupt ex-billionaire Halsey Minor discovered bitcoin, and unfortunately for me, decided that he liked the name “BITRESERVE”. He bought .org, .net. At first, this was not an issue. In 2013 we had an e-mail correspondence talking about our businesses, and Halsey asked if I was willing to sell the domain to him. I had at the time began the work on bitreserve and did not want to select another domain, so I refused repeatedly. Eventually I gave in and told him a big sum of money to make him stop bothering me for the domain. After a short reply indicating that he was offended, there was silence.
Skip ahead until May 2015 when out of the blue I received this threatening letter from his lawyer, demanding that I give him the domain free of charge, because according to him, I was, in “bad faith”, profiting off his trademark (since I wasn't using the domain at the time I had it redirect to a non-profit open source project (getmonero.org)).
Furthermore, he let me know in very clear terms that he would use the law against me if I ever tried to launch my bitreserve service on bitreserve.com.
After some research I discovered that Halsey had grabbed a bunch of trademarks in 2014 and was now using them in an attempt to steal from others.
Notice how they have secured a trademark on “bitgold” ? That term goes way back into the 90s cryptographer Nick Szabo. In an e-mail from January 2015, Bitreserve said that it will sue bitgold.com (another Canadian based bitcoin exchange) into oblivion once they launch their service. The fact that they have even trademarked bitelectrum tells a lot about their ill intentions. Bitshares has since long established with bitusd etc, a topic discussing the possibility of Uphold to steal it can be found here.
It turns out the founder Halsey Minor has a history of being extremely litigious, in addition he bailed on his debt and declared bankruptcy in 2013, after apparently losing his fortune on bad investments, art, hotels/real-estate and unfinished projects (and losing lawsuits?).
The new CEO of Uphold (Anthony Watson) is no better when it comes to legal threats and threaten to sue me if I use the domain for anything. Halsey Minor does not believe in bitcoin at all, to quote him "Bitcoin will not exists in 5 years". And the fact that the current CEO calls Andreas a "random he has never heard of" speaks volumes.
I urge you all to not support a company run by these individuals. In fact I wouldn't trust them to keep your money safe *.

bitFlyer holds trademark on BITCOIN. Is Ver squatting?

It would seem that bitFlyer was the first to get a trademark on "BITCOIN". You can view it here. They may have legal standing against bitcoin.com for Cybersquatting and using it to promote bcash and steal Bitcoin's brand.
It may be unenforceable, and there is the possibility of getting something worse than what is currently there. Just something to think about.

Is the name "Bitcoin Cash" community trademark infringement?

Isn't forking bitcoin and calling it "Bitcoin Cash" the same as forking the Linux kernel and calling it "Linux Kernel"? Isn't there some legal standing for the community to sue anyone perpetuating the name "Bitcoin Cash" as a class action?
