As many may know, some years ago I lost my original domain, www.imogenenix.com and I've been struggling to gain it back. One of the many things I had considered was TM'ing Imogene Nix and using it as the impetus of dealing with the CyberSquatters who'd held it to ransom.
Part of the plan was to TM Imogene Nix in order to disallow anyone else from access. As things pan out, I've been spending a lot of time lately putting the groundwork together. Then last week, I learned I could regain the imogenenix.com domain. However, it occurred to me, that TM'ing Imogene Nix for the purposes of "Publishing Books" would do more than assist me with regain the domain, it would also allow me to use that name (and that's all I'm TM'ing) for the purposes of Brand Protection.
I've been using it since 2011 so with an extensive history and books lining up everywhere, it makes sense to ensure that no one else can use that as their pen name. (Which is all I'm looking for.)
So below is a screenshot of the actual filing information.
Class 41 is totally 100% being used for Entertainment Purposes.
I'm more than happy to answer questions if anyone has any. I'm more than happy to explain what I'm doing and discuss ramifications however, this is not about stopping people using the name in real life, if they are a sewer, a dancer or anything else.

This initial filing is in Australia. I will later on be undertaking to TM it Internationally.
