Revised Section 66(a) Chart
The December 14, 2004 TTABlog posting predicted that 84 Madrid-based Section 66(a) applications would be published for opposition on January 11, 2005. That prediction, based on information from a source whose identity will not be disclosed, turned out to be incorrect. In fact, 106 Section 66(a) applications were published on January 11, bringing the total published through that date to 143.
Here is an appropriately revised chart reflecting the number published by the PTO each Tuesday from November 9, 2004 to January 11, 2005. The perceptive reader will recognize that the tower on the right edge of the chart is relatively about 25% taller than that in the previous, erroneous chart.
