Trade names adopted by business entities may be recorded with Customs to afford the particular business entity with increased commercial protection. Customs procedure for recording trade names is provided at § 133.12 of the Customs Regulations (19 CFR 133.12). Pursuant to this regulatory provision, the Red Bull GmbH, an Austrian corporation organized under the laws of the State of Salzburg, and located at Brunn 115, A-5330 Fuschl am See, Oesterreich, Austria, applied to Customs for protection of its trade name “RED BULL NORTH AMERICA, INC”.
On Thursday, June 14, 2001, Customs published a notice of application for the recordation of the trade name “RED BULL NORTH AMERICA, INC.” in the Federal Register (66 FR 32414). The application advised that before final action would be taken on the application, consideration would be given to any relevant data, views, or arguments submitted in writing by any person in opposition to the recordation of this trade name and received not later than August 13, 2001.
On Thursday, July 12, 2001, Customs published a correction of publication in the Federal Register (66 FR 36617), of the June 14, 2001, notification to record a trade name because part of the corporation's full trade name was erroneously omitted (i.e., NORTH AMERICA, INC.).
