The plaintiff in this trademark lawsuit is an Oregon-based business “offering a full range of electrical services, including but not limited to residential, commercial and industrial services along with a comprehensive service department.” Plaintiff has used an ON ELECTRIC trademark since January 2015 in connection with its electrical services.
The defendant, OEG, allegedly began using an ON ELECTRIC trademark in connection with electrical services in August 2015. OEG apparently used to stand for “Oregon Electric Group” but it switched at some point to “On Electric Group.”
Both parties operate in Portland, Oregon and the surrounding areas. The complaint (below) alleges numerous instances of actual confusion among suppliers, advertisers, customers and others.
