THE USE OF THE TRADEMARK: PRANCERCISE®

The PRANCERCISE® Trademark is an important business asset of Joanna Rohrback and Prancercise LLC and should be carefully used. I rely on my trademarks to identify my products and services and to distinguish them from those of any competitors. Joanna Rohrback and Prancercise LLC is proud of her unique program and has put in over 20 years of time into it and wants to be protected for her efforts.

If the Prancercise® trademark became “generic” in any area,this could fail to protect consumers and Joanna Rohrback’s company from identifying the origin of her products and services – anyone may be able to use them without concern of a trademark infringement claim, which could be unclear in the market. The word Prancercise® can only originate from Joanna Rohrback and Prancercise LLC.

Please be supportive of my effort to enforce the Prancercise® trademark taking steps if they’re used without the owner’s authorization to avoid any confusion or misuse that could lend itself to liability. Please contact me if you have questions concerning these issues.

The word Prancercise® as defined in my book Prancercise®:The Art of Physical and Spiritual Excellence,: “A Springy,rhythmic way of moving forward similar to a horse’s gait and ideally induced by elation”.Prancercise® was created by me and this movement was copyright under the Video “Funky Punky’s Prancercise Program in 1989. Word and logo trademarks should only be used to indicate the source of my particular program and any related services or products and not be used to refer to any fitness program or goods or services other than my Prancercise®program and style of movement and anybody who is a licensed representative of my Program and is authorized to use or represent my program through membership and license/certification agreement.
