TTAB Hot Stove League Opener: LA Dodgers Oppose BROOKLYN BURGER logo
The Los Angeles Dodgers, apparently hoping to salvage something from this season, have filed an opposition (here) to registration of the mark BROOKLYN BURGER in the logo form below, for "hamburger patties." Los Angeles Dodgers, LLC v. A. Stein Meat Products, Inc., Opposition No. 91197089 (filed October 25, 2010). [News report here].
The Dodgers claim likelihood of confusion with their registered mark BROOKLYN in the stylized form shown below, for "baseball games and exhibition services and a variety of goods and services, including, but not limited to, apparel, beverage containers, printed matter and novelty items." The Dodgers also make a "false connection" claim under Section 2(a).
TTABlog comment: Stein Meat Products must be bummed out! Who do you think will win?
