USPQ Publishes TTAB's Uncitable Jiu-Jitsu Decision While Citables Go Unpublished
In its January 31, 2005 issue of the United States Patent Quarterly, BNA includes the TTAB's uncitable, interlocutory, and uninteresting ruling in Rickson Gracie LLC v. Gracie, 73 USPQ2d 1379 (TTAB 2004). It is simply a mystery why BNA would choose to publish this unremarkable November 2004 decision while two citable TTAB decisions from September 2004 remain unpublished: namely, In re Candy Bouquet Intl, Inc., Serial No. 78058216 (Sept. 8, 2004) and In re White, Serial No. 78175476 (Sept. 8, 2004).
The TTABlog has no problem with BNA publishing uncitable TTAB decisions, even if they are as dull as Gracie. But citable decisions should receive priority treatment, don't you think?
