Trademark Licensing Protection Act -

Trademark Licensing Protection Act

Franchising is governed by trademark law which is enacted in the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1051 et seq. This law requires that franchisors police the use of their intellectual property licensed to third parties so that the brand is consistent and uniform to consumers. While trademark law requires franchisors and franchisees to enact controls to protect the brand, employment law penalizes franchises for establishing the same controls. For example, a hotel brand standard may require employees to wear branded uniforms so that every location looks the same to the public. However, the requirement of branded uniforms has been used as evidence of joint employment in litigation. As such, there is great uncertainty about what amount of control will trigger a finding that the franchisor is a “joint employer” over its franchisees’ employees. The Trademark Licensing Protection Act (“TLPA”) purports to resolve this finding by affirming that brand controls, as required by the Lanham Act, cannot be used as evidence of joint employment status under employment law.

The bill seeks to protect the franchise model by addressing the issue of what constitutes a joint employment relationship. It corrects a decision by the National Labor Relations Board in which the Board reversed a 30-year standard that a business needs “direct and immediate” control over their subcontracted businesses or franchisees. This ruling ultimately means that actions taken by a trademark owner to maintain brand standards may cause courts to consider the trademark owner a joint employer of a franchisee’s employees. This ruling ultimately means that actions taken by a trademark owner to maintain brand standards may cause court to consider the trademark owner a joint employer of a franchisee’s employees. This court make the trademark owner liable for wrongdoing committed by the franchisee.

I’d like to share some extremely significant news that has been spreading throughout the internet relating to our future security.

We’re coming towards a future of a one-world cashless money society where we will be mandated to have an RFID microchip implanted in our body. This chip will contain all of our information and we will lose much more of our privacy because of the tracking power.

More importantly, have you heard that this was predicted almost two-thousand years in the past by a major historical figure named Jesus? Don’t believe me? Keep reading to see… This may well be the most important thing you will ever read.

• “Also he(the false prophet) compels all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead signifying allegiance to the beast, and that no one will be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let the person who has enough insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six” (Revelation 13:16-18 AMP)…

Speaking of the final times, this could only be speaking of a society where physical currency is no more, which we have yet to see, but we are on the horizon of. Why’s that? Because we could still buy or sell without receiving the mark of the beast among each other if tangible currency was still valid. It logically deduces itself to this conclusion.

The mark of the beast could not be something spiritual, because the word references two separate physical spots. If it was spiritual, the text would only conclude one place.

Now here is where it gets interesting. It is amazing how on target the Bible is in regards to this RFID microchip. Here are some notes from a person named Carl Sanders who labored with a lineup of engineers to help develop the RFID chip in the 1900’s.

Mr. Carl Sanders attended 17 New World Order conferences with heads of state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the CIA to discuss their agenda on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the nations-a microchip that would be inserted beneath the skin with a hypodermic needle(a quick, convenient process that would be progressively received by the world).

Mr. Sanders, along with a group of engineers with him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by US tax dollars, took on this task and designed a RFID microchip which is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable with the aid of the temperature fluctuations in our skin. With out having knowledge of the biblical scriptures (Sanders was not a believer at the time), these men spent one and a half million dollars conduction research on the best and most convenient spot to have the microchip placed below the skin.

These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two places Revelation says the mark will be placed) are not just the most convenient places, but are additionally the only viable spots for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The RFID chip is approximately 7 millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the dimensions of a grain of rice. It’s capable of containing pages upon pages of data you. All of your standard records, work records, crime records, health information, and financial records can be stored on this chip.

Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped develop, is the “beast’s mark” mentioned in Revelation 13:16-18. The Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which is defined as a “scratch or etching.” Additionally it’s fascinating to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek language. That word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick. Carl believes that is referring to the use of a hypodermic needle being poked in the human flesh to insert the microchip.”

Carl asked a doctor what would occur if the lithium contained within the microchip was exposed in the human body. The doctor responded by saying a horrible sore would manifest in that location. This is what the book of Revelation has to say:

“So the first angel poured his bowl on the earth, and a nasty and terrible sore appeared on the people who had the beast’s mark and worshipped its image” (Revelation 16:2 CEB).

God’s word tells us that we cannot buy or sell without accepting the mark of the beast, or the number of its name. The number being identified as 666. God’s word us to calculate the number 666. How can we calculate 666?

This is where it all tops off. Calculating the number of the beast 666 has been long debated throughout history, but has finally been uncovered in these final days by God. What you will read confirms itself with the holy scriptures the real interpretation to calculate six-six-six.

In the Bible, God uses the number three for confirmation. A few examples are shared below:

“For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

“and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

“…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

Now what is interesting is the the mark of the beast is described in detail in 3 separate verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists three different examples of the given topic. The last 3 being the number 6 used three times in a row. Here is a key point to deciphering how to calculate the number 666.

What does it mean to count the number of the beast, 666? It means to add up. How may we add up 666? Call back to mind my earlier point concerning God confirming in 3’s. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. It is not rational to count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also revert us back to the start. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only sensible option is 6+6+6=18. What is interesting is that the verse that tells us to count the number of the beast itself is verse 18, being the 3rd verse out of three verses that describe the mark. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

Another fascinating point is the only two other combinations (making a total of 3 possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between the sixes are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Count up both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Holy Bible where the 144,000 are being mentioned in detail:

“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

If we add up all 3 numbers by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around in all 3 possible combinations, we would get 72+72+18=162. What is interesting about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name for Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb being the Son of God, Jesus.

Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

“Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the identical formulation to get the value 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the value 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.

With using the identical method of counting by including the plus symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?

Yet another interesting point to notice is that if you add up all of the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we have to add up three sixes as opposed to perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

So what might this suggest? We know in this world we’re recognized by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificates to social security, also with our drivers license, being recognized based on a system of ruler ship. So it’s conceivable that this RFID microchip will incorporate a brand new identification that has a complete total of 18 characters.

Could this be the name of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that is identified by 18 characters? This may fit the scriptures that speaks of a mark that we ought to have to buy or sell in our right-hand or forehead, and that it additionally includes the number of the beast, during a future cashless money society.

Go to: to see all the proof!

God’s word warns us in the last days that a false prophet will rise up doing miraculous signs deceiving many to receive this mark:

“Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

At all costs, DO NOT TAKE IT!

“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

We’re living in very prophetic times with very important Biblical prophecies coming to pass. When Donald Trump acknowledged Jerusalem as capital of Israel on December 6th of ’17, this was a massive step to fulfill the Third Temple foretold in the words of God.

God’s word alerts us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

“…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

Inside the Islamic religion, they have a man known as the Mahdi, referred to as their messiah who they’re awaiting to be revealed. There are a number of testimonies from individuals on line who imagine this man will be Barack Obama who may be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had strange dreams about him. He got on stage declaring himself to be a follower of Christ with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, but was later revealed by his family that he certainly is a faithful Muslim.

His real name is stated to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name changed to Barack Obama. Is there any significance to this?

Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

In Hebrew, the word “Barack” means “lighting”, and the use of “Bama” (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights” of heaven.

The following day after the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the prevailing pick three lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

Obama had been U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

Regardless, whomsoever seats themselves in the future Third Temple in Jerusalem, declaring himself to be God IS THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

So, why do we need Jesus?

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Our own works cannot save us. If we step in front of a judge in the court of law, being responsible of a criminal offense, the judge is not going to judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we’ve committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of moral justice, how much greater a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

God has introduced to us His ethical law’s through the ten commandments received by Moses at Mt. Siani. These legal guidelines were not given so we may be justified, but in order that we may see the need for the saviour. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it’s an act of evil to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.

We may strive to follow all the moral guidelines of the ten commandments, but we’ll by no means catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law received by Moses manifested as flesh over 2000 years ago within the body of Jesus Christ. He was brought forth to be our justification by perfectly fulfilling the commandments of God, living a sinless life that solely God could fulfill.

The space between us and the law can in no way be reconciled by our own merit, however the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we’re to seize hold of, by faith in Him, He’ll pull us forward being the one to justify us. As within the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your debt, even though you’re guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let you go free. This is what Jesus did nearly 2000 years in the past on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled within the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His last words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

Now why did Jesus have to die for us?

Due to the fact that God is Holy and just, the wrath that belongs to us could not be brushed away. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched and satisfied.

For God takes no pleasure in the demise of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, the place it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

That is due to the fact the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it was poured out on us who have earned it, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not be left in Hades, however was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

Now after we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer looks at the man or woman who deserves His wrath, but the glorious image of His perfect Son living within, justifying us as if we obtained the wrath we deserve, making a means of escape from the curse of death.

Now what we must do is repent and believe in the saviour, confessing and forsaking our sins. That is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, butrather receiving His words, taking them to heart. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but turn away from our sins and exercise righteousness:

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

By doing so we will come to be transformed into the image of God by way of faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who is inclined to give the Holy Spirit to those that ask of Him:

“Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

“But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

So what are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only wants the best for us all, restoring all the things this world has stolen from us. This is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.

He’s ready to listen to you. That God given tongue to speak language, by using faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing to Him your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you receive the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you need His Holy Spirit residing inside you reworking you into a child of the living God.

Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Did you realize that Jesus spoke more about hell than anybody else in God’s word, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very purpose He was brought forth to die for us, to save us from this place that we deserve.

He describes hell as a real place where,

“Their worm does not die
And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

And where,

“There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

Jesus tells us who to fear,

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

With all of the world religions, how can we make certain the Bible got it all right? The scientific data has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning wherein space, time and matter had been created. Many know this as the big bang.

“The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

The Bible not only got it all right that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it also states in 7 different scriptures that the universe is in a continuous state of expansion thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.

Did you know that the actual Noah’s Ark was discovered in the place where the Bible instructed us it’d be with the right dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah and the Exodus event of the Red Sea crossing?

The Bible is by far the most translated and examine document in the history of the world, filled with predictive prophecies, matching what we discover within the book of nature. Would not you count on God’s word to be so?

This data and much more can all be found here:
