CAFC Hears Oral Argument in Southern Cal v. South Carolina "SC" Trademark Dispute
On November 4, 2009, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit heard oral argument in an appeal from the TTAB's decision in University of Southern California v. The University of South Carolina, Opposition No. 91125615 (August 1, 2008) [not precedential]. [mp3 here]. At the Board level, the Trojans of USC (California) topped the Gamecocks of USC (South Carolina) in this Section 2(d) opposition proceeding involving their respective SC logos. [TTABlogged here]. Sounds like USC will win.
