TTABlog Quarterly Index: January - March 2006

It's been quite a quarter! Eighteen citable decisions (as of March 24th), equalling the total for all of last year. Proposed TTAB Rule changes and lots of comments thereon. The continuing Leo Stoller saga. The launching of the new Shape Blog. Can the next quarter even come close in bloggable excitement? Maybe. Let's see, there's the INTA annual meeting in Toronto, the second annual "Meet the Bloggers" event, the World Cup, more scintillating TTAB decisions, perhaps a few more Stoller extension requests, the continuing battle over the TTAB Rule changes, .... Somehow, I think the TTABlog will not be scrounging around for content.
