In the recent 2014 regular legislative session, Louisiana repealed a law that had reserved the word "Jazzland" and related logos in the state for use by Jazzland, Inc.

In Louisiana, there are currently no active trademarks or business names using the term "Jazzland."

Despite the repeal, the term "Jazzland" is not freely available for use. A brief search of the United States Patent and Trademark Office's database reveals that there is a Federal trademark application for "Jazzland".

As this brief example shows, there are many sources that need to be searched to clear a particular mark for use in commerce.
