      There is no federal distinction between tradename and trademark. They
      both fall under trademark law. A simple search can be done by anyone
      at:

      http://www.uspto.gov/main/trademarks.htm

      There is NO registered federal trademark (simple or design) for
      either "C. Crane" or "Twin coil ferrite loop"

      Registered federal copyrights can be searched by anyone at:

      http://www.copyright.gov/records/

      There is NO registered federal copyright of either "C. Crane"
      or "Twin coil ferrite loop"
