TTABlog Summary of TTAB Precedential Decisions: June 2012-March 2014
Here is a bit of reading material for your trip to the INTA annual meeting in Hong Kong: "Decisions of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and the Federal Circuit on Registrability Issues June 2012 to March 2014." This paper (pdf here) categorizes and summarizes the TTAB's precedential opinions for the last two years. I will be discussing a number of these cases in my presentation on Wednesday morning, May 14th. An expanded discussion of many of the decisions (i.e., the decisions published in the USPQ between July 2012 and June 2013) appears in the article "The Sixty-Sixth Year of Administration of the U.S. Trademark (Lanham) Act of 1946," recently published by The Trademark Reporter (TTABlogged here).
