And – you can “remember us” via our easy to remember slogan .. of:
“QUIX – FOR YOU” = QUIX4U”
Since expanding exponentially since Mr. Clare coined the accronym (when just 12 years old .. back in 1965)
This is being (now) used “jointly with & separately from” – in many forms, alongside the original Copyright owners own uses..

So too- are our “OTHER” Domains
The name is: ” “QUIX.co.nz” ” (it’s a google thing)
That “means” –
DO NOT TRY TO ACCESS – THIS – AS A “URL”
It is “NOT” provisioned as (just) one “URL”
(unless that changed & our “QUIX.co.nz” puts you here)
Currently we are still “researching” NZ & WIPO LAW.
Just to make sure our QUIX(c)(tm) from 1965 onwards
(as detailed below):
Ensures that our Priority Rights,
Both in NZ Copyright & NZ Trade Brand Laws
Always were & thus still “are” actually FULLY protected.
Thank you for visiting the original Hinge Services Central Limited (t/a) QUIX – since 1999
We recently rebranded our NZ Company into:
WAITAKI SOUND TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED
Same company – same details .. different name
We still retain full opwnership of our:
New Zealand Top Level Domain (trading) Name
Registered in 2002 as our New Zealand (Email) Domain of:
There’s more: (MUCH, MUCH MORE)
So much (more) in fact:
That this 1 “website” Top Level 2002 NZ Domain Name
(as a single URL ?):
Could never (ever) “hope” to cover all of the different webpage URL’s, that are truely NEEDED
in order to get it to “land upon” them
(& thus terminate within them all as well as across)
Many more of our vast NETWORK of interlinked websites
Especially given that ALL single Web-based Domain Names were ONLY ever “created” by computor whizzkid experts, whom never (ever) envisaged that anyone would ever be WANTING (just) a single URL to somehow “terminate” across a vast & varied range of pages, as well as a wide range of un-related topics.
Such as I actaully wanted our MAIN one to do.
Oh sure.. WE COULD have just
“listed” our two or three PAGES of “[link_through]” webURLsingle entity access html codes…
WOULD YOU spend the next several hours..
Scrolling down that list? Nah – didn’t think so.
In 2006 when we first “started” creating our own type of multiple use, multiple interconnectable, multi access point websites, world wide.
The first huge hurdle .. Instantly raised it’s ugly head..
SOME ONE ELSE wanted to “create” these for us, at a LARGE COST .. for negligible interactivity.?
I know how to “type” .. and being a bit of a “sit back” & let the PLUMBING & OTHER RELATED “sub-contractors” (actually earn their income) type of “boss”
Especially being, as I have always been, a bit of sedentiary “sit.back” (as many times a day as possible type of CEO), I often sit here with virtualy nothing to “do” (each day), except play video games &/or test the latest products (as if I was a genuine purchasing buyer)
I then decided..
Why not put my desire for “deep” research into good use.
I have since “FOUND” hundreds of FREE hosted website pages across the world, that actually costs me “next to nothing” to set-up each one & maintain (except lots of my “seldom spare” free time).
AND ALL THE TIME – IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
.. to “create these” any way that I want ..
Ok… so how hard could it “really” be…!
To sit down & build my own one (for free) from scratch.!
If I could design hundreds of “electronic trails” ..
Maybe I could eventually discover ? HOW .. to create an interactive 3D “effects” website, where the Uploader also instantly downloads their OWN uploaded content (but cannot access anyone else’s and no-one else can access their’s) but with certain aspects of my own (old school style) “analogue”, multiple channel, 3 dimensional, totally spherical, surround sound, “deplexer decoders” built into that virtual site, or somehow “construct” a dual layer inward only / outward only “instant streaming” connectivity? That then utilised come good old fashioned hard wired “hardware” (here) .. so that I, or some of my team members, could even “assist'” (by sitting in at our “real” studio descks” .. whilst the online interactive user would see & hear everything in realtime 3D, then when the (paying) customer was “satisfied” with the eventual studio “re-mastered newmix” .. they could then simply reboot a clean upload.download through.play, straight through the device, which would autostream directly out from the “inboundout.bound” server, whilst the end user (creative artist uploader) simply saved the re-mastered “MASTER.MASTER” back into their own audio systems.. Without ever having to buy a major recording studio for creating their audio themselves.. but always “had” our one, “on tap… 24.7” whenever they next wished to create another QUIX self-creation as a “remastered.re-master”
One – that wasn’t just a one way stream.. but one that allowed clients to “multi-stream” in dual directions at the same time, whilst actually “listening” to the way in which this process was executed, & also able to tweek it.
Yes– “playable” as they watched, or listened, & then they could simply “choose” which of the obtained results best suited them, & simply save changes at their own PC
At a “substantial” membership entry $$$ rate that is ..
(as I wouldn’t be hard out working — for no reward)
Well .. that was my theory anyway..!
I just haven’t configured my 2002 “QUIX.co.nz” Domain thing out, to get it do such a complex type of website yet.!
Give me a chance as I’ve ONLY had 6 years worth of constant typing & testing of various “ideas” whilst trying in vain to be doing this, since going broadband, in 2006
& Basically – ONLY – in the “AFTER HOURS”
ie: between 5pm @ night & 6am in the mornings, as my NZ Company still needed a manager (of sorts) with my overview ideas inside, of it’s self-sustaining operation
Thankfully I deliberately designed it to do just this, away back in 1998/9 when I designed it’s functionalities. & that’s when I decided that I WOULD NEVER “actuallly” employ myself, in any manner or form, within this my LARGE master “Holding Company” (a Holding Company) of all my “other” various Business “activities” as such as the many “non-registered”, and “un-limited” enterprises, as well as “un-related” ones of them too, as each business thus related around it’s own interests, yet they “all” also constantly evolved & revolved around this “PIVOTAL”:
HINGE SERVICES CENTRAL LIMITED
The NZ Company – that I initially made too,
Hence one of it’s functions – was as the “HINGE” (pivotal) Services (of services the sub-contractors operated from) Central
By being truely CENTRAL – as per being “Located” in almost the exact (N/S/E & W “centred”) centre of the “entire Otago-/-Southland regions”, as well as actually being in the “Central Otago” region, whilst “still” being the main “CENTRAL HUB”, of all of the other outwardly radiating “business enterprises” (of mine), thus I did originally deliberately provision my QUIX Domain Name in this fashion .. for my OWN best interests, as well as the best interests of my NZ Company, which didn’t NEED (at the time in 2002) a WEB PAGE, as I couldn’t access one then, even though I had originally wanted too, as back in the late 1990’s & early 2000’s – Telecom’s (old) analogue network of 025 WAP cellphones, were NOT very well geared up, to be anything other than purely email WAP capable & cellular “mobile.web” WAP access units (only)
Therefore- I deliberately set-up my QUIX back then, as a purely “email driven” system, done in this way to provide an exceptionally “strong” copyright & well documented:
LASTING PAPER TRAIL
(Back then) – I could “once a month” – access the town library computor, whever possible, and get the ladies there .. to print out the “emails” that I wanted to save, as most auto deleted after about two months, read or not).?
Thus of all of our Intellectual Property Holdings, not the least of which were done via NZ & Aust. Patents as well as a PCT app. via the SWISS WIPO on a Re-invention of the: HINGE (itself)
We have held some “properties of intangible values” like:
NZ Pat: 330552, Aust.Pat:754678 & PCT/99/00066
On -and thus of – one of our things – being:
“Improvements in and relating to a hinge”.
Thus: Hinge Services Central “obviously” has always been the “most.quickest.expert.done” QUIX method of: Quickly-Fixing all of our QUICK-FIX, Quick-to-Affix, Innovations & Inventions, into “ONE FIXED PORTAL” “The International Electronic Email Postal System”, where our WRITTEN WORDS were Instantly Copyright Protected (all around the world) AND thus were fixed.
By being All “time-dated” to the EXACT DATE
That each & every file was actioned.
When we state – that a “webpage” URL of ours,
or TRADEMARK coined & initiated on such & such a day
We do NOT need to check again,
as that’s actually how we came to know it now.
.. WE CHECKED FIRST ..
Just so we’d remember which day it was:
That we initiated “that” something.
And in that fashion, I often post lengthy lists of all the remembered sites (of ours) on newly created sites – later
(as then it also help me – remember where I left them all)
There – “in the first place”.
Well – if I had my way.
(and some day)
I may even attempt to “build” a workable system,
One URL “bulk_websearched” –
landing NOT upon just it’s one fixed page ..
But just LIKE a huge aeroplane does nowadays when it “brings in” a whole plane load of “ideas” inside people (on any one unit) that then lands as it does .. on just one airstrip, yet from within that one “place” – there are already many like minded brains, filled with hundreds of similar ideas already awaiting the chance, to simply leap out and scream loudly – we’re here – why aren’t you.
Just as all those greeting families do with friends whom were waiting inside that terminal, with a whole paddock of motor vehicles waiting outside to transport them away
Yes some may even been left, for this planes passengers
… and yet … within a matter of hours …
All those people whom sat thinking together
On the SINGLE (URL) PLANE ..
whom did arrive onto a “single area” at one terminal
They are now scattered out upon the entire world (hidden again).
So.! Wouldn’t it be wonderfull..?
If one did NOT have to leap frog, from one airport terminal to another, looking for the cheapest fare whilst your baggage is on another plane flying somewhere else, such that by the time you eventually arrive at your final destination with that baggage of yours that has almost circumnavigated the world, whilst itself just airport hopping along on it’s own merry way – back to you.
Somehow the baggage handlers mysteriously produce your completely LOST luggage, and away you go
never to see any one – from that aircraft again.
What I would like to eventually see.. is:
No one needing to sleep over, in a cramped airport because they “missed” the one flght out, and people not “needing” to run from one end of a building to another. just to “catch” an interconnecting flight
often the same plane that got them there initially
& then .. when you’re finally firmly BACK ON BOARD
That’s when you finally discover — shock horror ..
you turned left when it was a right you should’ve made
And somehow your plane is flying non-stop (to Alaska)
Yes a wild imagination I suppose..
BUT I have heard some nasty stories .. about airtravel
But anyway .. I was talking about “internet searchings”.
I knew you would have “liked” to have been able to arrive
just before your plane leaves, instead of 2 HOURS before
& then at the touch of buttons it’s the through connection
Well that’s “precisely” the sort of interactive web.page that I would’ve LIKED to have offered, to a select few target people .. (to judge their reaction at first).
To my original idea of my QUIX.co.nz interactive website
My web page for this FIRST most amazing “main”:
Non website url -that I have wanted to provision (myself) I wanted it completed perfectly (the first time U tried)…?
It awaited for me patiently, but it was ACTUALLY already way to busy being my email postal central HUB, for all SIX of our existing International “Domain Names”.
So I finally decided – lets go live anyway, and tell you why I didn’t provision it before. (before two Auckland plumbers couldn’t leave my brand TRADE MARK alone)
THERE ARE NOW LITERALLY MANY HUNDREDS:
of forums, chatrooms, related sites run by others, where I often also go, either to ask my own questions, or answer those of others, & have placed my information upon, way too many more – for all of whom I now “seem” to be working for as well .. (for free) .. whilst STILL running the overviews of my main core businesses here too, AND now with an American Businessman exited about my many and varied innovative product lines .. I’m also now in the interim stages of provisioning his 3 websites too, as well as incorporating another Company (under the master one of all mine), to be then “run” semi- autonomously, yet purposefully together – almost as one, both of which will be “co-run” between another two joint venture businesses, (one here in NZ under a partner’s control, & the other in the USA, which already is under his control) and then when everything is “runing smoothly along, MAYBE — just maybe .. I can get back to all of my 250+ webpages & sort them out a bit better than before.
As thankfully, by then this “QUIX.co.nz” will be under another of my Companies “own” controls too (thankfully)
And my original 1999 can finally revert to what I started
And “Hinge Services Central Limited” will again have some TIME to make more of my wonderfull gate hinges & other funny things, & I’ll be able to go farming again too
As I show farmers .. how to “swing” their old gates more
And thus I will then finally revert “back” into the Construction & Maintenance “feilds”, from whence & where- I first became a “professional” Electrician
So many, many years ago
But before that happens – theres just too many things that need to be constantly maintained
And now I am DOUBLING my workload.?
But at least I will eventually be “paid”
when the NZ & USA connection is running smoothly.
Thus yes folks:
I’m often deeply involved in some dim darkened space, researching Forgotten Laws (& Common Rights of Tort)
Searching through legal beagle archived websites, and digging deep into those decidedly tricky, legally binding Acts & Local bylaws seeking out varous stringent codes
Whilst all the time sharpening my keenly refined abilities, utilising my now vast knowledges & things, on how to roam around the internet extracting clickthrough links or searchable character set, a full sentence at times
Anyone, whom should know “exactly” how to do indepth (deeper than standard methods) search & research, into a wide variety of litigation website information portals,
SHOULD KNOW – in the normal course of their core business — such as for “technically difficult to find” LEGAL aspects, with an intricate knowledge of such things (as Un-Registered Trade Marks) which because of that “precise non-registered quality”
ARE NOT ACTUALLY EVER LISTED
on any “Registered Only” type of
OFFICIAL LIST OF REGISTERED TRADE MARKS
Which only exist for actual REGISTERED trade marks
Otherwise why call it a “registered TRADE MARK list”
But an: ALL TRADE MARKS LIST
(for not only registered but unregistered” marks too)
be they specifically for trade
or just as an official trading LOGO (or BRAND)
Thus, by way of their legally representative profession:
Such people as Lawyers – especially those whom hold
or whom have held themselves out as:
Ex- Qualified Patent, Trade Mark & Copyright Attorney’s
Even they should know the simplest of methods
& techniques, to extract any detailed LEGAL description:
of a NZ Companies “business activities”
from such places as?
the New Zealand Universal Business Directories
better known as the UBD http://www.UBD.co.nz
& the New Zealand “Telecom” Business Directory Services
such as YELLOW http://www.YELLOW.co.nz
plus ask the New Zealand Domain Name Commission “themselves” (as after all, where else would one expect to “find” information on a “currently hidden” NZ Registered “.co.nz” Domain Name, especially one which “although registered and current” for many many years, still is NOT provisioned “directly” into just ONE “specific” URL for any reason whatsoever, such as a NEED to remain invisible for RECENT SPAM reasons, or simpy because WE want you to think “outside the square” and go do a general web-search” for the “WORD TERMINOLOGY”
(and thus mine did NOT actually need just a single URL).
However, it has again sadly come to our attention:
Some “so-called” ex patent attorney’s and other legal beagle types of professionals (such as plumbers), actually do NOT have those basic (internet searchable) research skills, and instead BASE all of their incorrectly applied accusations, on their own inability to discover LEGALLY identifiable NZ Trading Information about ANY Registered NZ Company.
And it’s actual a highly complex business set of activities.
But then sometimes when “one” goes driving down the international super highway Internet electrical pipeline
A plumbers registration & practicing licence..
“just doesn’t help” – YOUR EXPERT SEARCH.
I am being accused by some “plumbers” AGAIN,
Not “plumbing” that they thought meant “plastic pipes”
But on my OWN:
2002 registered DOMAIN NAME of: ” “QUIX.co.nz” “
Double quotes as I HAVE to let some “plumbers” know:
“it’s a KEYWORD for your search”
(& not a terminated deadend sewerage pipeline “URL”)
As a fully functional “data access” point- for MY OWN:
“Pivotal Portal” EMAILING HUB – on this super highway
it doesn’t NEED to be anything other than a:
centralise sewerage sorting system
for everyone “elses” SPAM emails – to end up inside.
Thus “QUIX.co.nz” is exactly that:
A “registered” EMAILING DOMAIN NAME.
Not a (fixed) PLUMBERS (H) URL
It is a constantly “flowing” pipeline of freely flow data
Whilst re-routing massive amounts of throughput emils. and other electronic audio & visual data too
For many other informational uses, as well as providing a drainage pipeline to sink hole all of the worst plumbing
that I’ve ever had the continuously harrassed need to see
Some of which has become a real headache since those:
two Auckland plumbers – took it upon themselves to: “flood” my pipelines with constant SPAM since Feb 2008
Well they do say, Goliath should never throw boulders:
At what on the surface only looks LIKE a tiny wee David (versus Goliath).
But I am NOT – “a one man band” operation
Because SOME of those rocks of Goliath, have bounced off David, and awoken the MONSTER “sleeping beside me”.
Now the monster is HUNGRY ( and Goliath is on his menu list ).
“QUIX.co.nz” is NOT for sale.
It isn’t even available for your use (apart from being an email portal into the rest of our extensive business operations -worldwide)
“QUIX.co.nz” is however..
ALSO NOT OWNED..
By “KEITH CLARE”.
It was ONLY ever purchased with Company Funds, and PROVISIONED .. on exactly HOW the business was to “function” as a central emailing server, without a dedicated website “plonked’ somewhere such as this NEW ONE, adding to the HUNDREDS OF OTHERS WE ALREADY RUN.
Don’t believe us?
Want to just be ignorant & goto the “DOMAIN NAME”
As if it were a “fixed” URL..? Well golly gee.. YOU MAY GET YOUR WISH.
But for now.. google is (still) good enough for everyone else.
As we “FLOAT” this domain NAME .. across a vast array of often unrelated websites.
ALL generally interlink to each other, or at least to a different one that does
It is NOT a (provisioned domain) WEBSITE NAME, But a legally identifiable NZ Business (International or Internal only) “Domain Identifier”, that can Legally be utilised for EITHER of it’s two main qualities (or both, or neither)
A DOMAIN NAME can exist with NO email functionality, but simply exist for a SINGLE webpage “terminating” URL;
A DOMAIN NAME can exist with NO terminating URL, but simply exist for it’s WILDCARDED (all email)”aliases” emailing HUB functionalities,
Both of those functions to varying degrees,
NEITHER FUNCTION. as it may be in transition from one system to the other, or it may be in transit from one ISP Host Server to another, OR .. the owner may “simply’ not have a suitable webpage design or functionality in mind “at the present time”,
As so often happens nowadays, it MAY simply be an outage beyond the owners control, such as an internet server connection in their place of business, has failed &is away for repairs,
ANY OTHER REASON.
As NO DOMAIN NAME OWNER is legally bound to “display” at all times, (irrespective of & irrelevant to, any conflicting reason; be that for purely “business or commercially sensitivity reasons”, or not), nor are DIRECTORS LEGALLY BOUND to “publicly acknowledge & release” their Commercially Sensitive Reason/s “on any grounds”, that may seriously IMPACT on their compliances with ANY NZ COMPANY LAW.
Which states that NO DIRECTOR shall expose the Company to any “undue release of commercially sensitive information”
(especially if a competitor desires to gain information which could, if that release were given, be conferred & construed, as being detrimental to the DIRECTOR’s own company’s business interests).
I will hereby “release” SOME of our Business activity interests, JUST TO PROVE A POINT.
Operating as it always has under section 2/ (above) with respect to HOW it has been provisioned for use with an “original” CELLPHONE account, which STILL USES THAT ACCOUNT for it’s intended & provisioned purposes (both within NZ & world wide).
A DOMAIN NAME can exist with NO terminating URL, but simply exist for it’s WILDCARDED (all email)”aliases” emailing HUB functionalities,
Is in itself, a WRITTEN COPYRIGHTED TERM (written) upon many of our “other” FULLY VISIBLE, Publically accessible BUSINESS websites:
Both of those being themselves fully provisioned (in 2008) into Part 1/ above:
They BOTH terminate at exactly the SAME MAIN 2006 URL, itself “hosted” by the very same UBD, being the New Zealand “Universal Business Directory” Service, that ALL “intending” NEW COMPANY DIRECTORS (one of whom was actually an ex Patent Attorney), and obviously others whom are doing their client’s due diligence, such as “searching” professionally qualified lawyers, are (by the Commissioner of Companies) DELIBERATELY DIRECTED TO SEARCH, when first doing the requirements of the New Zealand Companies Office, ALL OTHER DIRECTORES & (business best practice) search information resources, such as the “yellow pages”, “newspaper advertisements”, “hand delivered flyers” & any OTHER form of “written documentation”, such as a “name search of the UBD.
All of those NEED to be done, as a pre-requisite requirement & thus a LEGALLY BINDING New Zealand Companies Office “stipulation”, directing the attention of (all) “Intending Directors” of NEW COMPANIES to actually start doing, and continue to do, ALL DUE DILIGENCE (at all times).
ESPECIALLY BEFORE ANY NEW BUSINESS NAME:
1/ IS RESERVED, OR
2/ ACTUALLY “INCORPORATED”.
As to not do due diligence then, will often expose them to litigation & even LOSS of business NAMES & ASSETS, if an “existing” NZ Company is already trading upon that name, of if that NAME has been used “IN TRADE” anywhere in New Zealand, at any time, by any method, especially with respect to “any” UN-REGISTERED TRADING NAME, BRAND, PLAIN WORD LOGO, or “Product Name”, as the REGISTERED LISTS are only conclusive evidence of “actual” registered names, and NOT of the FULL LIST of Legally Trading Entities (in New Zealand) whom, by reason of their NOT requiring to be “registered” on any LIST, can still LEGALLY TRADE in whatever busines category they were trading;
As LONG as they can show, by any one (or more) visually provable means, that they are INDUSTRIALLY APPLYING THEIR provable priority dated PRIOR RIGHT OF TORT (NZ Common Law of Business), BRAND/ LOGO/ Product Line, or (trade) “MARK”;
Acrtoss their Business tradings IN NEW ZEALAND;
Which does uphold their own “prior” ownership of any contestable “MARK”. then the NEW New Zealand Company Name: (or Trade Mark as the case may be) is actually UN_REGISTRABLE;
And, if later “proven’ that there was a bona fide case, of “publically available evidence (easily found, via any normal means available to the general public, at large);
A “NEW” (later registered under false pretences); New Zealand Company Director, or Directors as the case may be, together & separately with not only each other, but with their actual “since so registered” NZ Company (as well), ALL can be held accountable in a Court Of Law under the the New Zealand Fair trading Act, the NZ Common Law of Tort, the New Zealand Copyright Act, the New Zealand Companies Office Policies & Penalties section, as well as various OTHER ACTS, (such as in relation to any specified TRADE to which that infringing MARK has been illegally applied), as well as to the specifics of the New Zealand Trade mark Act 1953 & 2002 (pertaining to the stipulation that NO REGISTERED MARK can be “abused” OUTSIDE of it’s specified class, or classifications of classes, especially if there is any “chance” of that having been thus committed, in any form whatsoever, for the leverage for commercial gains (or outright denial of competition), over a PRE_EXISTING “priority rights owner”, whom holds any such pre-existing (verifiable) DATED copyrights & priority dated “industrially applied” usage rights of that MARK (if an Un Registered Mark) with respect to BOTH the New Zealand Trade Mark Act 2002 & of the law of Passing Off, as well as that most missundertood “law” of the: COMMON LAW OF TORT.
Just to set the record straight:
Should anyone “else” be making false accusations and or showing their complete LACK of doing their legally bound:
Before forming any NEW Company (in New Zealand), any intending, or current, Company Director, whom somehow assumes that because a “pre-existing” NZ Company Business, is EITHER “not trading” in your style, or NOT trading with their registered OFFICe, based in the TOWN or CITY where you intend to “register” your head office (before expanding your NEW Company into their “pe-existing” New Zealand Wide “territory”);
Let me assure you.
DO NOT attack this apparently “sleeping” DAVID
Especially do not hurl mountains of email spam, to deliberately get the recipient to “BLOCK” your spam (as if it were a genuine phishing / hacker attack), to then allow you to send out any advertisements calling for FRANCHISEE’S, and thereby receive ANY ADDED BUSINESS BENEFIT,. thus gained upon your cybersquatting, or typosquatting, or outright theft, of the (original) pre-existing NZ Company’s (& or other unregistered business’s) “own” priority right NZ “Un-registered” (& or UN_REGISTRABLE) pre-existing Trading NAME
As, if you do:
You may be liable (in court) to the severest of penalties that apply
Such as the deliberate, & or partially accidental, Miss-use of a New Zealand “Registered” Trade Mark (outside of it’s actual “registered” class or Classification) which has been then so used as to “leverage” an unfair advantage over any pre-existing competitor, or to deliberately HARRASS (in any form), or to deny the pre-existing New Zealand Company Owner (with priority rights) the “fair use” of their pre-existing TRADE MARK, (especially if such denial has been, or could be, “seen” to have been done, for your own commercial gains);
The penalty (for such infringement) is PUBLICALLY WRITTEN & thus visually verifiable by anyone, that the “prescibed penalty” for breaching section New Zealand Trade Mark Act 2002:
As written in public view on the Switzerland Based SWISS WIPO being (Switzerland’s) “World Intellectual Property Organisation”
That place where everyone in the world MUST COMPLY with the World Wide Patent, Trade Marks & Copyright Acts (of each & every Signatory Country’s Convention), and which does “publically display” all CURRENT versions of each of those Individual Countries “own” internally prescribed Palimentary Acts.

I bring everyone’s attention to a few “facts” of New Zealand Business Life.
Especially with regards to the “making” of deliberate (or accidental) Harrassments of, & towards, those original owners of “Priority Right Claimants” (rights owners), in respect to the NEW Company’s “claimed” rights in respect to the priority rights holders “pre-existing” (prior dated) industrially applied uses, of a “NZ Trade Mark” (whether registered by the original owner, or not), by a LATER REGISTERED TRADE MARK OWNER whom may be seen to, or can be seen to, be harrassing or making false claims (especially one whom can be seen, or is seen, to be deliberately miss-using their Registered MARK), by the “miss-representing” their later registered MARK’s assumed claim to a right, outside of it’s fixed class (or clasification) in which it is REGISTERD:

Well – did YOU undestand that …? NO.
Well then don’t worry eh…?
As many people do NOT even bother to read down this far.
It is very, VERY important.
Because what it says .. is that:
ONLY registered Trade Marks can “actually” be:
“HELD ON” the Trade Marks REGISTER.
That if anyone:
incorrectly assumes that – because they:
HOLD a “registered trade mark”

IN ANY OTHER CLASS

Is NOT an all exclusive MARK across ALL classes

(a) disclaims any right to the exclusive use of any part of the trade mark; or
(b) makes any other disclaimer that the Commissioner or the Court considers necessary for the purpose of defining the owner’s rights under the registration.
72 Rights affected by disclaimer
A disclaimer on the register affects only those rights of the owner of a trade mark that arise out of the registration of the trade mark in respect of which the disclaimer is made.
Invalidity of registration of trade marks
73 Invalidity of registration of trade mark
(1) The Commissioner or the Court may, on the application of an aggrieved person (which includes a person who is culturally aggrieved), declare that the registration of a trade mark is invalid to the extent that the trade mark was not registrable under Part 2 at the deemed date of its registration.
(2) Despite subsection (1), the registration of a trade mark that has acquired a distinctive character after its registration must not be declared invalid even though the trade mark was not registrable under section 18(1)(b), (c), or (d) at the deemed date of its registration.
(3) The Commissioner or the Court, as the case may be, may refuse any application for a declaration of invalidity that is vexatious.
74 Effect of declaration of invalidity
(1) If the registration of a trade mark is declared invalid to any extent,—
(a) the trade mark is, to that extent, to be treated as if it had not been registered; and
(b) the Commissioner may alter the register accordingly.
(2) The validity of any transaction that occurred in respect of a registered trade mark before the registration of the trade mark was declared invalid is not affected.
75 Presumption of validity of registration of trade mark
The registration of a trade mark is, after the expiration of 7 years from the deemed date of registration, deemed to be valid unless—
(a) the registration was obtained by fraud; or
(b) the trade mark should not have been registered on any of the grounds set out in section 17(1); or
(c) the registration may be revoked on any of the grounds set out in section 66.
And so…….. ?
Where to from here.!
Well obviously.. Court (of some form or other),
Even if it’s not resolved first by the realisation .. that a serious misconduct or a difinitive deleriction of duty, has once again brought the Auckland Plumbers to try to leverage a commercial gain again, on a different aspect of my legitimat business activities.
So? What are my “LEGAL” remedies.. lets look to the 2002 NZ Trade Mark Act “again” shall we.?
Part 4—Legal proceedings
Subpart 1—Civil proceedings for infringement
How Act affects other rights
88 How Act affects other rights
Nothing in this Act affects—
(a) the law relating to passing off; or
(b) rights under the Fair Trading Act 1986; or
(c) rights under the Geographical Indications Act 1994.
91 No defence that infringement arose from use of company name
In an action for infringement of a trade mark, it is not a defence that the infringement arose from the use of the name under which a company has been registered.
By “deliberately” REGISTERING (in Auckland in 2010)
MY PRIORITY PROTECTED /TRADE MARK /COPYRIGHT /NAME BRAND:
As their “so-called” TWO New Zealand Company Names..
There IS no defence that they can raise ..
as to there “being” any LEGAL RIGHT —
to have so infringed upon my PRIOR EXISTING
(well documented & excessively well advertised)
TRADE MARK ..
WHEN THEY DID .. not do — due diligence even then,
to actually agressively “seek out my BRAND EXISTANCE.
Does not therefore constitute a legal right of defence .. that as they REGISTERED THEIR COMPANIES with my QUIX
They cannot claim it as defence of infringement upon my
Simply because they thought they could get away with it
And then there is “this”:
Acts not amounting to infringement
92 No infringement where trade mark used in circumstances not covered by registration
A registered trade mark is not infringed by the use of a trade mark in any way or in any circumstances to which, having regard to any conditions entered on the register in relation to the trade mark, the registration does not extend.
Ok.. lets go “check’ (again) shall we, as I am “certain” that it was ONLY in just ONE class.
That of “plumbing”.
“QUIX.co.nz” is my Internet Email Postal Services DOMAIN NAME & as such: It is “not a part of the plumbing classification”.
Here is the class that REGISTERED MARK is “registered” within. Remembering that ANY ACTIVITY of “abusing” a registered mark “outside” of it’s class, exposes the OWNER (of that mark) to severe criminal penalties, under the 2002 NZ Trade Mark Act.
>>> “QUIX” via my own (lifelined) background records..
In 1965 I first coined this from Qu (ick f) ix = QU + IX = QUIX
Auckland Plumbers in 2008 “claim” they got theirs from?
Qui (ck) ? (e) X (pert) ?
How they got there baffles me. ? (and you too – I daresay).
As would it NOT have been simpler to just say?
Quert = as in “Qu (ick – exp) ert” ?
Aparently NOT because-
Somehow I was attacked in 2011 by the “claim”
(by a couple of Auckland Plumbers)
whom told the Plumbing Regulatory Board,
That I was “advertising” on my?
http:// QUIXNZ (.wordpress.com/) web info page
(I will include the actual link at the bottom of this article, as by then, you will be truely able to understand, the immense amount of writting that I have had to undertake in responding to, and collating deffence documentation in order to protect, and then to also keep my various business activities organised (as well as keep my committment “up’ to the other board directors commitments that I must adhere to,
such that all of these “claims” such as
That I was “holding my self OUT — as a PLUMBER
(installing sanitary services)
via my QUIXNZ brand
Which is “another” well known HANDLE — of mine
(brand name / TRADE MARK / username)
Since 2007 when I NAMED my “Windows Live Spaces”
& Windows Live – SKYDRIVE (photo albums)
Oh & yes:
there’s even a QUIX_PIX “tiny.cc” which will get you there
It seems to – NOW BE?
(or it will be if they can illegally squeeze it out of me)
Thus .. after the Plumbing Regulatory Board .. ran against:
A BIG SOLID WALL OF LEGAL DEFENCE
When they “accused” me & tried to “force me” to STOP “sub-contracting” PLUMBERS .. in my line of business.
THEY WITHDREW THEIR ACTION
The same Auckland based Plumbers..
Are now – “attacking me again”
No- NOT through “normal legal channels”
(where they would instantly fail)
But through the NZ DNS Disputes Service.
Claiming that their 2010 PLUMBERS TRADE MARK
Somehow infringes my well documented:
1965, 1985, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2006 & 2008
COPYRIGHTED (UN_REGISTERED) TRADING MARK
By being just ONE of my:
250+ “usernamed” ISP hosted WEB domain names
Just because they:
COULD NOT DO A GENERAL WEB SEARCH
Of the written sentence of :
” “QUIX.co.nz” “
Which if done correctly, ?
DOES NOT aim at a “non existant” SINGLE URL
But Aims towards >>> “a sentence”
Where it is “written” on about 1,500 or more pages
MANY “MANY” YEARS PRIOR to 2008
(when they “claim” to have coined the somewhat difficult)
Quick Expert “advice” (into) QUIX ? in February of 2008
Which is a descriptive services TERM & “non-registerable”
? 2008 ?
That’s the same year in fact..
THAT I HAD ALREADY ALSO REGISTERED:
MY 2 BEST UNREGISTERED TRADEMARK USERNAMES
After having them “exposed” (advertised) on the www
Since 2006/2007 via Microsoft’s Windows Live MSN
& Via their SKYDRIVE “photo” storage website.
& on twitter & wordpress, bogger & google &…
ALL PROVING beyond any shadow of doubt.!
That somethning really fishy is going “on” here
As ALL of my MARKS
Are now being either deliberately Hi-Jacked, Typosquatted upon & / or Cybersquatted upon.
Especially that of my:
“QUIX & QUIX-NZ & QUIXNZ”
All of which are “somehow?
THEIRS (in just two years)
When I have “created & held” mine
Since the first in 1965
(generically altering them in literally “many” ways)
11 twitter accounts (prior to 2011)
15 wordpress accounts including QUIXPLUMBING
In 2007 I had already formed QUIXNZ at Windows Live
(with nearly 90 QUIX photos uploaded)
7 Blogspot accounts pre-dating 2007
I run Facebook (on 3 accounts)
1 “main” youtube
with 2 & 1/2 others as well
(1/2 because we still can’t remember how we did the 1st)
Thus youtube has QUIX , QUIX4U & QUIX4U2
I have been profiled on Google for a long time,
an Uploader (of photos & info) to Wikimedia Commons,
My QUIX is advertised on Wikia Tractors
via: Mitsubishi Pickup Trucks
My “personal username” QUIX4U is BLOGGED everywhere >>>
I am in the final stages of expanding into USA Markets.
A couple of harrassers:
are (now) abusing their Registered Trade Mark
in order to “steal” my “QUIX.co.nz” Domain NAME
AND THEY ALSO WANT ALL OF MY INTERNET BLOGS
That have absolutely NO relevance to PLUMBING or to a
PLUMBING TRADE MARK CLASSIFCATION
Unless my 1965 invention:
Of an analogue AUDIO 7 channel surround sound system? Has suddenly become some sort of a “plumb”
I’m just a “david” (of sorts)
That a BIG GOLIATH has been throwing rocks at..?
But … Now the MONSTER
(whom was asleep behind me)
Wants to BITE “Goliath” instead
That MONSTER .. is my (own) 1965 BRAND
As well as that of a 1999:
NEW ZEALAND REGISTERED COMPANY
(and of an “incoming” American Investor)
A brand that I have worked LONG AND HARD
Everywhere, not the least of which is now splattered
(across all mediums, since 1965)
They have finaly woken a “MONSTER” asleeping beside me
Someone wants to “PUSH ME ” (again) do they.?
I wonder how hard they will run away (this time)..
when they KNOW that I have absolutely NO intention..
of relinquishing my VALUABLE hard earned:
BRAND NAME (goodwill) Product Name, IP
Including that of the QUIX invention I invented
Upon which I took World Patent Applications upon..!
(in no less than 90 signatory countries .. in 1998).
QUIX INTERLOCKING MODULAR HINGE SYSTEM
NZ Pat: 330552, Aust. Pat: 764567
& the SWISS WIPO
Oh & Talking of the “swiss” WIPO
That place in Geneva where:
ALL PATENT, Trademark & Copyright LAW is “held”.
It’s an email trev & look whois:
“it” ? From:
—– Original Message —–
Ok .. That’s sweet now you KNOW where that:
2002 NZ Trade Mark Act “info” came from (for me)
Is a fine not exceeding $150,000 or a term of imprisonment of up to 5 years ..
NOT a big enough incentive to “stop” people harrassing
And to thus “starting” to treat me with respect.
Or.. am I going to have to “tell’ that monster:
Where it can “READ ALL ABOUT THIS”
& eventually “reveal” where we have been hidding
ONE domain in 6 — (all of this time).
By finally fixating a “fixed” URL
& thus an extremely invisible “static” web site
Will suddenly become your worst nightmare
As others discover what you have done.
Something no-one knew that I would want ONE url to do.
>>> choose your web engine search provider >>>
Paste the entire contents of the next line
(into your browser as)
” “QUIX.co.nz” ”
Then hit go.?
The reason I double quoted that ” “sentence” ”
is extremely easy to understand..
IF.! If you stop and think a bit first.
All single URL’s by default (without quotations)
gets ONE HIT (stuck) with a single pin.point
somewhere upon the inernet.
Such that if one doesn’t USE a webpage very often
(or simply doesn’t use it at all – as a visual medium)
But instead “provisions” it ONLY for emailing..
Then to what purpose would it be needed HERE for .. ?
To be forcefully required
(on pain of being threatened by you – as I am today)
With a “claim” that my emailing Domain name ..
Somehow isn’t working .. as just a website.?
Oh boy, How wrong you wish that I wasn’t too.
But no — I work really really hard, in Administration.
Last Night .. I ‘started work’ (again)
after an eventfull full-on day elsewhere.
I haven’t been to bed yet & already it’s after 7:25 am
You know — that TIME in a day ..
When everyone else is starting to wake UP again.
And now .. some of “those” DAYLIGHT workers..
Are suggesting that I do not utilise my Domain name ..
Just because it doesn’t allow them to do one:
BASIC BROWSER GOTO
& land on an exact URL!
Because if one that used to do that ..
& it simply “aim” into space – with no URL
It will soon be deliberately provisioned
To stop it’s hidden FLOAT
over hundreds of pages .. by the 2 ” “double quote” “
but when just bundled
It was a web-wide “general expression search”.?
Now that in itself was:
a SERIOUS internet based WEB traffic medium.
Thus who but you
Not in their right mind ..
then “pokes” that hidden web domain OUT
into the sunlight for all to see…
just so that someone (else) doesn’t need
to DIG DEEPER – to find the truth hidden
down deep below the surface?
I already RUN five other Top Level Domain Names,
AND maintain about 250 more,
Plus I oversee many “sub-contractors” ..
Whom RUN my various enterprises as they have before ..
WITHOUT my constant input…
Officially I retired years ago – or was that just (re) “tired”.
I have way bettter things to “do” with my limited time ..
Than to go chasing someone elses rainbows,
or into digging youe farm trenches,
or cleaning out and fixing – someone elses mistakes
That’s what PLUMBING Sub-Contractors
Were always employed for.
I “utilise” the other four letter (cleaner) word.
And – prefer “PLAY” .. instead of just WORK.
As an Ownwer/ sole shareholder/ CEO
+ (unpaid everything else).
Why would I want to DO “work”.
After all —I WORK for free .. would you?
Unless one is like myself, and doesn’t need the greenback
MY income stream is NOT derived from Businesses I own.
As my main form of income .. is actually “sourced”
Somehere else entirely – & it’s an eternal resource.
Outside my internet SERVER – that services my enterprise
Anyways.. enough of that …
Here’s aother clue.
Why work .. ?
when someone else (like a registered plumber)
wants to do ALL that hard work .. for a “sub-contract” fee.
Me — I’m off to “play” some more ..
(as I’m forming a new company where I will have to work).
Whilst (my) 1965, 1985, 1999, 2002, 2006 & 2008 “QUIX”(tm)(c) Business RUNS ITSELF,
& works silently behind me (in the deep dark shadows)
As the Central Nervous System for all SIX master websites & hundreds of indeterminate smaller ones .. by the score
As all around the world, I own, operate or maintain ..
too many to assist, inform, on-sell & sub-contract from.
But if you want..?
YOU can follow me..
Anywhere U like..
Oh & TALKING of that – try LIKE .. it’s that facebook thing
Tep: QUIX4U is on Facebook 2 – or is that just 3.
(which actually terminates into his QUIX-NZ’s “face” site)
So too have we (“Gonewalkabout Quixnz”) via:
Hinge Services Central Limited’s on our old WAP CT
BUSINESS 0275 QUIX C/T
02745 (QUIX) C/ellular & T/ext”
It’s a faceless (cellphone number based) F/B uploader.
That even has a NAMED FB WEBPAGE for it to rest upon(as it’s an know number, via cellular at Telecom)
Whilst out back, it’s Owner just gets “faced”
there as well … Because (see).?
Keith Clare is doing really fine.
He’s also working hard out — over on Google via:
Whilst his other business for pleasure
(free give away E_Flowers4U business)
..trades all over the world..
Selling FREE HUMOUR to everyone.
Via those E_Flowers4U gift cards, that are GIVEN,
to as many people on the streets, roads, & cities
in New Zealand, as well as given to any “foreigner”
Hitch-Hiking through NZ,
Whom is not only blessed with a good FREE RIDE ..
(somewhere in NZ – to then be “able” to – also take home)
ACROSS any International Border (world wide)
One .. very Unique NZ Business Card .. UC
Hidden as it is there too…
Deep within the zero fragrance Virtual E_Flowers4U
.. that they take home to their respective countries..
to “plant” the seeds of my inventions when they get back, MY QUIX4U business interests & products – yes it’s a fact
Oh and yes,
They actually do get those E_Flowers4U “2″.
That’s them… ON THE CARD.
A Single RED @ Rose &
A tall GREEN ! Leaf +
A wee BLUE * Carnation …
(covered in frost)
All gently _-\wrapt/-_ in ?
it’s own “Pink.Tinsell.Paper” 2
Go plant my E_Flowers4U
(And make someone elses day – really good too)
Ok >>> It’s time for U2.Go “a-wandering-on” elsewhere in QUIX:
Oh & p.s:
Here’s why our 2002 registered (NZ) domain name of:
Still isn’t fully provisioned “yet”.
