Although there may be other computer service companies currently using the name, none have been given permission to do so as of yet.

Motivation Behind Registering The Service Mark
As our company continues to grow in our customer base, we’ve branched out into more and more states. We now have business partners from Rhode Island all the way to California, as well as a number of international customers. Our aim is to lock down the brand name to prevent other competing companies from attempting to capitalize on our brand and misrepresent their services as being ours.
Already this trademark has been used to shut down one website www.raiddatarecovery.com which was falsly representing itself as “Data Medics” and even stealing content from our website to use on theirs.
