    European Union Copy Rights Article 13

    Not too many questions. In the USA, an entity registers the desired trademark with the federal administrative agency that administers the trademark process. That's the short answer. Here are the details, probably a lot more than most would want to know, at the federal government agency's site: https://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-getting-started/trademark-basics

    European Union Copy Rights Article 13

    I strongly suspect that the Disney lawsuit was based primarily on trademark, not copyright. Those are two different things. In the USA, unlike copyright, trademarks are of unlimited duration and can be lost by the trademark owner failing to enforce its rights. A classic law school example of this is the trampoline, i.e., the jumping device. "Trampoline" was the trademark of the original manufacturer and marketer of the device and others eventually began to use the term trampoline for their similar products. The trampoline trademark owner failed to take legal action for a long time and when it finally did litigate, was found by the courts to have lost the trademark due to inaction.

    Dogs

    Two dogs here. Jeffrey, a Treeing Walker Coonhound, is 12 years old and I adopted him from a person who rescued him in Georgia (USA) about 6 years ago. A local rescue group here in New Jersey arranged the transportation. Jeffrey's favoring ASOIAF quote is: "A bear there was, a bear, a bear! all black and brown, and covered with hair. The bear! The bear!" There are black bears in my neighborhood and when Jeffrey scents one he desperately wants to hunt it. Takes considerable effort to hold on to his leash. Only happens a few times a year, fortunately. The other dog I adopted a few months ago, "Muffet" about 2 years old, American English Coonhound a/k/a Redtick Coonhound. She has similar reactions to the scent of an animal, not sure what type, but I suspect that it is the fox that lives in the woods behind my house.
