Revised TTAB Rules to be Published Next Week
Fasten your seatbelts! The TTAB is about to issue its revised rules. A reliable source tells me that the new rules package will be published in next week's Federal Register. Reportedly, some changes will be effective as of September 1st and others as of November 1st.
In case you've forgotten what this is all about, see the TTABlog postings here and here. Or peruse Section III of my article, "The TTAB in 2006: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."
