Yoyos in Canada


#1

So in Canada, what we know as a yoyo is a return top…
Then what is a yoyo in canada?! ???


#2

Yoyo is a trademarked name in Canada. Some company owns the name YoYo and refuses to let any other Canadian company call their product a “yoyo”.

A yoyo is still a yoyo it’s just some lousy trademark law that should really be revoked.

It would be like me trademarking the word soup.

Ummm, I’ll be right back… I think I left the oven on *Runs to try and trade mark the word “Soup” *


#4

Jelly might have just been trademarked. The last jar I used proclaimed that it was “Spreadable Fruit.”


#5

Basically it doesn’t matter what it’s called. Yoyos, Jelly, Soup… No matter what trademarks say you are always going to call it what everyone knows it’s name by.


#6

I’m asking, what is trademarked as a yoyo? What product?
Does anyone know?

If you go to Canadian stores like Zellers you’ll see a brand of YoYo called YOYO.

Some of them are like Fast Eddy Shooters and stuff like that. They totally suck and are a waste of a trademark.
