The Ides of March
It is The IDES OF MARCH. When I studied "Modern History" at Oxford for two years, the subject matter started with Roman Britain. In Roman times, the Ides of March, which corresponds to March 15, was a time when several different religious observances occurred, and historically was also the date when Julius Caesar met his untimely end. In trademark parlance, there is but a single registration on the Federal Register for THE IDES OF MARCH, Registration 2088918, for a series of audio recordings and for entertainment services. It has been registered for nearly two decades. There are 48 registered marks with IDES as an element and only one for IDES alone. Is it owned by anyone Italian, perhaps a descendant of the Romans? No, IDES in a stylized format is registered by a Japanese company as Registration 4638935 for baby carriages and toys, among other things. Submitted by Glenn Bacal on March 15, 2016.
