TTABlog Holiday Reading: The Trademark Reporter Nov.-Dec. 2008 Issue
Santa Claus arrived a bit early this year with a nice present from INTA: the November-December 2008 issue of The Trademark Reporter. Four articles and an amicus brief discuss zombie trademarks, dilutions surveys, trademark use, and the "famous marks" doctrine, topped off with a brief friendly cup of STARBUCKS (or CHARBUCKS) coffee. A great big thank you to the Trademark Reporter Committee for granting permission to The TTABlog to provide these links. [The illustrations were not supplied by INTA].
