TTABlog Report: TTAB Issued 57 Citable Decisions in 2006

Set forth below are links to the TTABlog postings for the 57 citable decisions issued by the TTAB in 2006. [The total for 2006 dwarfs those of the last two years: 18 in 2005 (TTABlogged here) and 13 in 2004 (TTABlogged here and here)]. The decisions are categorized by subject matter. If the reader is looking for a particular decision by name, or wants to conduct a key word search to find cases on a particular issue, the best approach is to use the TTABlog Search box on the right hand side of the blog page (just under my photo).
