I think this is why he might lose

This is the main reason he could lose. Not only did he wait 6 years. He KNEW that they had it and what they were doing with it all that time. Plus from what I gather he let the registration expire.

Not saying he will lose, but I think that is the key thing. And ethically that puts him in hot water to boot.

edit....just want to add that I really think a trademark owner has a duty/obligation to protect their mark. He clearly did not do that. This is why all those cease and desist letters are sent.
