and Atmospheric Administration accessdate November 17, 2012 date August 2010 Icebox of the Nation International Falls has long promoted itself as the "Icebox of the Nation"; however, the trademark for the slogan has been challenged on several occasions by the small town of Fraser, Colorado. Officials from Fraser claimed usage since 1956, International Falls since 1948. The two towns came to an agreement in 1986, when International Falls paid Fraser

$2,000 to relinquish its "official" claim. However, in 1996, International Falls inadvertently failed to renew its federal (Law of the United States#Federal law) trademark, although it had kept its state (Law of the United States#State law) trademark up to date.

the borders with Westminster and Seal Beach. Surf City USA trademarks While Huntington Beach retains its 15-year trademark of Surf City Huntington Beach, the Huntington Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau filed four applications to register the "Surf City (Surf City (song)) USA" trademark in November 2004. The idea was to market the city by creating an authentic brand based on Southern California's beach culture and active outdoor lifestyle while

at the same time creating a family of product licensees who operate like a franchise family producing a revenue stream that could also be dedicated to promoting the brand and city. A ruling by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office released on May 12, 2006 awarded three trademark registrations to the Bureau; nine additional trademark registrations have been granted since this time and ten other Surf City USA trademarks are now under consideration.
