Not too sure about God getting confused! It is only human to be confused...

AFAIK, Protek is AMAIN's in house brand.

HOUSTON, I AGREE. THEY DO A FINE JOB OF MARKETING PRODUCTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD AND I APPLAUD THEM FOR THEIR PROFESSIONALISM IN THIS FIELD AND I AM ON THEIR CUSTOMER LIST...BUT WHY WOULD THIS NAME CAUSE THEM ANY PROBLEM IN THEIR PLANS?

I own a trademark for my Furniture store, truth of the matter is that while your name may sound similar it is completely different as is the spelling. the only legal case would be if you also had a logo that was similar to pro tek's if you can also prove that you have been using this name before Pro-Tek was trademarked you will retain your right to use it in its current form. You should fight the claim if you want to keep it but I would imagine that A mains pockets are deeper than yours

THAT WOULD BE A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE AND MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE THAN PAYING ATTORNEYS TO TAKE ME TO COURT...AT LEAST I COULD RECOVER SOME OF MY EXPENSE OCCURED...HE COULD HAVE RIGHTS TO THE NAME AND THE WEBSITE AND I IN RETURN WOULD CHANGE THE NAME AND GO ABOUT MY CONCERNS
