I’ll try my best to provide some insight albeit the limited facts. My first piece of advice: talk to an attorney! Quora should never be substituted for sound legal advice. Regarding the substance of your question, it appears your trademark protection was originally granted for electronics and not clothing. The use of the name for clothing would probably infringe on the company that continues to file multiple extensions because of the “likelihood of confusing” consumers based on similar names in the same industry. However, an attorney would be best to tell you the impact, if any, of the other company’s intent-to-use application, which seems to signify that the company hasn’t entered the market yet. If that’s the case then there are no consumers to confuse, but the other company may still have priority. I invite you to check out the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) website to contemplate filing an application for multiple classes – How to Satisfy the Requirements for a Multiple-class Application or Multiple-class Amendment to Allege Use. If you want to find an attorney then you should check out LawTrades. Our community of lawyers across the nation have helped countless startups maneuver through difficult situations.
