Registered & Claimed Copyrights, Service Marks and related legal info

This website of the Original Church Corporation of "THE HOLY EASTERN ORTHODOX CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC CHURCH in NORTH AMERICA, INC." is protected by our Registered and claimed Copyright's and Service Marks.


This is the original Logo of our Church and the Registered Service Mark of this Church. It continues to be the service mark of this Church since we have never ceased to exist. Our date of incorporation is Feb. 1, 1928 and we have never ceased to exist to this date. Any use of this without our permission will infringe our legal rights and service marks. It is not available for use by anyone at will since we have had and continue to use this, our corporate name, for many years.

A Trademark or Service Mark does not need to be Registered to be the legal property of the owner who has used that mark for years. Registration does prove prior use and if that owner is still using that name it is the property of that owner. Use by others is then an infringement.
