Safari Trademark Approved
03-23-17: When we created the new Safari web site last spring, we wanted to be sure that the name "Safari Association" and any of its derivatives, was protected so that the name could not be used without permission. This protection is fairly standard in the internet world to protect the name and to give us legal standing should anyone try to mislead folks by misusing the name.
The protection consists of filing for and being awarded a United States Government Trademark by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office (USPTO). The process took some 15 months to complete and included publishing in the Federal Register. We just received the certificate of trademark from the USPTO and now we have the full protection of our name.
