The Bitcoin name and logo are trademarked in Spain with the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office. This process was completed by Ignacio Rubio Menéndez, a compliance expert and attorney specializing in business law. Cointelegraph en Español spoke directly to client Menéndez, who chose to remain anonymous for now.
This person explained: “I now have my logo and word ‘bitcoin’ registered nationally at the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office. Anyone can access the notes, because they are published daily and for all viewers.“
When asked why he took the initiative to protect this intellectual property for himself. He replied: “I am a bitcoin seller, I have a buying and selling office, and the idea is to protect bitcoin, at least in Spain. So I stand for the brand and take responsibility that every new user can feel 100% safe working with me and away from the scams that name and use ‘bitcoin.’ “
It should be noted that the archive addresses the logo containing the white letter “B” in an orange circle, which will become the official logo of Bitcoin. “In the text the letter B refers to code and lowercase b refers to crypto,he explained.
He continued: “I provide protection with my business and now with my brand, so that if any person or company on a national level wants to abuse a logo we all know, and the word ‘Bitcoin,’ I have a claim for abuse of the Ku brand.“
He concluded: “I’m not a fake Satoshi, I just registered the legal ownership and use of the logo and word. If someone uses it wrong, I will prosecute.“
