Use LOL! In your posts, you could soon be breaching tradmark

Could they really get this? I understand it from marketing perspective but still... Is it actually possible?
 
Unbelievable! Can you imagine if they actually get this. I'd love to hear them explain why they feel they are entitled to it.
 
They should be hammered just for trying they clearly didn't come up with lol. It would set us on a dangerous path if they can trademark words or phrases or text talk.

I hope they fail, but some companies have trademarked colour combinations, so nothing surprises now
 
Well if they successfully trademark it, eat a tidepod and shout LOL then sue them. Easy money and the support of millions.
 
And they can waste their money then trying to sue 1000s of fake account using their trademark.
 
I suppose it will only matter if they try to stop anyone using the term. Already got LOL dolls and other LOL named products out there.
 
I’m pretty sure the TM will only apply to the context it is used in.
That won't stop them from trying.

I have an established brand, with a trademark registered in 2014, and in 2017 a German bicycle manufacturer tried (unsuccessfully) to seize my domain for their new (non-trademarked) brand of bicycles.
