A 38 -year -old Mitchell, who usually works as an Amazon employee, says he never spends his doom scrolling.I don't usually touch the Internet, and sometimes local news is checked on public broadcasting national public radio (NPR), but Twitter and Reddit are only used to check new equipment.Mitchell, who was inspired by the idea of "Doom Scroll", has finally begun to start a new progressive slash metal band.To determine the name of the band, he applied for the first DOOMSCROLL trademark to the US Patent Trade Agency (USPTO) in February this year.A few months later, the USPTO sent an email saying, "Trademarks are approved within 30 days and given later."At that time, the name "Doom Scroll" was protected, and only Mitchell could be used as assets for band names and entertainment.Someday, Doom Scrolls will be a band that shakes people's hearts.Mitchell dreamed of the day and said, "www.facebook.COM/DOOMSCROLL "was registered.次ページは：ゲーム会社からのメッセージ
