Isaac Fuld

Isaac Fuld had one Ouija related trademark and that was on the word Oriole. He produced Oriole talking boards from 1904 – 1920. Though the Oriole board is not responsible for the Fuld family feud it certainly didn't help matters. William didn't tolerate Ouija board competition well, and it wasn't long until the Oriole board ended up in court. Though Isaac had an earlier trademark (No. 86,526) on the word Oriole, it was discovered in his second court case with his brother William that the mark didn't actually cover talking boards. This was a violation because he had been marking his Oriole boards as registered, and he was forced to register another one. William also alleged in court that Isaac by manufacturing Oriole talking boards had violated a 1901 injunction against him. Oriole boards were exact duplicates of the Ouija boards the two manufactured together as seen on the surviving stencils. Oriole boards were not produced on the scale Ouija boards were, and therefore they are a bit harder to come by.
