TTAB Test: Which of These Four Section 2(d) Refusals Was/Were Reversed?
Okay, readers. You didn't do so well on the last TTAB test, but that doesn't mean I'm going to make it any easier for you. When the going gets tough, etc., etc. Here are four Section 2(d) refusals for your perusal. At least one was reversed, but not all. Let's see if you have what it takes to be a TTAB Judge.
