DAYTONA, Private Company’s Registration of Bike Week Mark Irks Chamber

First some Alpha Biker commentary... Yosef Amar... hmmmm... sounds like a real American Biker.
For those wishing to "pre-pay" for their "right to use the Bike Week trademark", or maybe even go get yourself an authentic camel hair bike week t-shirt... Yosef and/or his business partners can be found at the following address...
Joe Cool, Inc.
1052 N. Beach St.
Holly Hill, Florida 32117
Hey Yosef, this Big Hairy Middle Finger award is for you!
On another note, I would love to be present during ANY attempt to seize these "counterfeit goods".

The Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors an annual bike week in that Florida city, learned a New York-based holding company that prints t-shirts obtained a state registration for the “Daytona Beach Bike Week” trademark, the Daytona Beach News Journal reported.
Joe Cool Inc., of Holly Hill, Florida, an affiliate of the New York company, told the chamber it will seize any so-called “counterfeit goods” that use the trademark without permission, according to the newspaper.
The Chamber has hired legal counsel to contest the state trademark claim and to block any attempts by the holding company -- which variously calls itself Mettemp Inc. and Consolidated Distributors Inc. -- to register a federal trademark, the News Journal reported.
Yosef Amar, who owns Joe Cool, said anyone wanting to sell merchandise with the Daytona Beach Bike Week trademark must pay a licensing fee of 20 cents per item, or buy his company’s pre- printed products, according to the News Journal.
