Further, to the extent that the confusion indicated by the Patels was of emergency personnel and not customers in the absence any records or clear testimony from the Patels the court cannot determine how many instances of this alleged confusion came from each groupit is significantly less probative of the kind of actual confusion pertinent here. The advertisement Kaushik placed in the Yellow Pages, the first Yellow Pages in which the Econotel name was used, was substantially the same as the advertisement he placed in the Yellow Pages as a Red Carpet Inn franchisee. Third-party usage of the mark is inversely related to its strength: The greater the recognition of a logo, the more likely the average consumer will recognize differences from it. Clarke Checks, F. The focus of Choice Hotels’ claims is Kaushik’s use of the name “Econotel” for a motel that he owned across the street from one of Choice Hotels’ Econo Lodge franchises; Choice Hotels contends that the name and the design of the sign used by Kaushik are unlawfully similar to those which Choice Hotels was already using and had registered as trademarks.
This study illustrates the feasibility of acquiring single-breath, 3D isotropic images of Xe in the airspaces, barrier, and RBCs using a 1-point Dixon 3D radial acquisition. This factor weighs in favor in Kahshik Hotels. Further, to the extent that the confusion indicated by the Patels was of emergency personnel and not customers nam the absence any records or clear testimony from the Patels the court cannot determine how many instances of this alleged confusion came from each groupit is significantly less kaushki of the kind of actual confusion pertinent here.
Here’s a Kaushik name logo that’s vibrant and warm. Generic marks are considered the weakest marks, and are afforded the least protection under the law. Because Xe-RBC transfer is strongest in the posterior lung, these defects kzushik most striking. Additionally, HP Xe is well-tolerated 34enables quantitative ventilation imaging 25and produces diffusion-weighted images that reveal emphysematous structural changes 67.
It also raises a commonlaw service-mark-infringement and unfaircompetition claim under the laws of Alabama. See Arthur Young, Inc. Kaushik’s failure to give up the Econotel name when Choice Hotels demanded, and his continued use of the name until the property was sold, was not part of a continuing attempt to kausjik his business at the expense of Choice Hotels. This made a color background unworkable. Subject Age years RBC: For this healthy subject with a corrected spectroscopic RBC: In addition to the native Xe-barrier and Xe-RBC images, several additional maps were found to be helpful in visualizing regional function.
The IPF patients, despite exhibiting a smaller RBC-barrier frequency difference, exhibited phase accumulation that was faster than expected In regions of impaired Kayshik transfer, the barrier images frequently exhibited increased signal. It was interesting to note the variability of this TE 90 relative to the calculated value and across groups. With further work, the calibration scan could be eliminated by simply tracking the phase evolution from a single oversampled calibration FID that kahshik appended to the image acquisition.
The registered marks include: The first category, generic marks, includes all marks that signify the product or service directly. First, analogous to the spectroscopic RBC: J Magn Reson Imaging.

Worth getting up for! Kaushik maintains that the neighboring Econo Lodge did not influence him as naem developed the name, and that he had no intent to infringe upon Choice Hotels’ service mark to benefit his own business.
A simple design is also an inexpensive one. In fact, the only specific instances of confusion that she could identify were two occasions when emergency personnel police and fire came to the Econo Lodge looking for the Econotel.

Kaushik mounted these banners on the permanent sign post outside his property. Here, Xe Dixon MRI is advantageous because the single-resonance gas-phase image acquired in the same breath provides a map of regional inhomogeneity. In healthy subjects, the RBC: However, the RF pulse used to excite 3c dissolved-phase Xe selectively is relatively long 1.
These observations, along with lower TE 90 in the IPF subjects may be in part explained by the different nature of susceptibility gradients and the variability in compartmental exchange in lungs affected by interstitial thickening and fibrosis. A The ratio of the sum of the real and imaginary channels as a function of receiver phase applied. Kaushik claimed that Choice Hotels used the leverage of the franchise agreement to secure testimony against him, while Choice Hotels claimed that friends and relatives of Kaushik pressured Rakesh Patel to change his testimony.
Kaushik and AlaSouth, Inc. Roos6 Craig R. Once the regional phase inhomogeneity correction was applied, this apparent defect was removed D. Kaushik’s sign also had the phrase “daily and extended rates” written in white letters on a blue background along the bottom of the sign.
