Dear Sequence Fans,
I could use some help in getting the name
"On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences"
registered as a trademark in the US.
If you have been using the OEIS for years, and you are a
resident of the USA, I could use an affidavit
something like the following.
The drawback is that it has to be signed in front of a
Notary Public, which a lot of trouble to go to.
If I could get half a dozen affidavits like this,
it would be a big help.
Let me know if you would be willing to help the OEIS in this way!
But don't do it yet, the wording may need to be changed.
The question is whether I could get some affidavits like this.
BEFORE ME, the undersigned Notary, ___________________________________________________ [name of Notary before whom affidavit is sworn], on this _________________ [day of month] day of _________________ [month], 20____, personally appeared ___________________________________________________ [name of affiant], known to me to be a credible person and of lawful age, who being by me first duly sworn, on ________ [his or her] oath, deposes and says:
I am a [occupation, e.g. Engineer, Technician, Professor of Mathematics] at [company or university]
and have held that position since [year].
The name "On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences" has
been familiar to me since the year [fill in a year like 2000] or earlier,
I have been a regular user of the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
since the year  or earlier, and
during all these years the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
has signified to me the single unique place where one can
obtain information about sequences of integers.
