San Diego City Beat article unreliable source[edit]

The San Diego City Beat article reference is unreliable and not as good a source of information as the USPTO. Therefore it was removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:01, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

USPTO trademark for The Tarantulas[edit]

All pertinent documents concerning trademark issues can be found on the USPTO website. These documents can be downloaded for free. This is the most reliable and accurate source for trademark issues. Please don't reference quotes from editors of random articles if you can't back them up with documentation, and especially when the actual documents are readily available on the USPTO website. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:09, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Below, I, Super48paul, move the emerging trademark discussion from my talk page to this public talk page:

All of the pertinent information regarding The Tarantulas trademark disputes is located on the USPTO website, which is referenced under the trademark section. The USPTO website contains actual documents available to the public concerning the legal disputes between Shams and other entities, not just bands. These are the documents that should be used under the trademark section of the wiki artice for The Tarantulas, and they are factual, correct legal documents.= comment from

OK, got the message (finally!). If you see so, try to give PRECISE ref on that PTO site about this specific case. A general ref to that website is insufficient, since the average Wikipedian will drown amidst all info there. Give it a try to state precise refs that will do. BTW, the source that was given seems nice enough to me; we do not only need legal stuff abut this issue! In the meantime, until we resolve our controversy, I revert back to the version by Michig which predates that controversy: OK? Super48paul (talk) 10:04, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Your reference source is inaccurate, Holslin, Peter (2013) "Grand Tarantula vs. The Tarantulas", San Diego City Beat, May 28, 2013. Retrieved June 8, 2013. The information stated in the article is merely an editor's re-writing of an interview. "Shams has acted against 10-15 bands", that would never hold up in a Wikipedia article. "Shams has acted against bands". What kind of legal action? This can be found on the USPTO website. The statements in the article " Holslin, Peter (2013) "Grand Tarantula vs. The Tarantulas", San Diego City Beat, May 28, 2013. Retrieved June 8, 2013" are unreliable to say the least. I will have to get a few more opinions on this and then I will get back to you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:18, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

This is an excellent article about an excellent band. The Tarantulas are a truly original exciting band. Please leave this article or add to it if you have any news. They are very well known in Europe and the UK. They sell out crowds overseas. Just because they aren't on the billboard top 10 in the United States people should know about The Tarantulas, and excellent 5 star band. 05:19, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
