TTAB Confuses Snow White With Cinderella. Harmless Error?

My Foley Hoag colleague, Charles Weinstein, just pointed out to me that the "Mirror, mirror on the wall" phrase is from Snow White, not Cinderella. Both the Board and the Applicant got it wrong in In re Glaze, Inc., blogged here.

As my law school professor, Benjamin Kaplan, used to say, a lawyer's job is to wash everything in cynical acid -- even fairytales. Thank goodness Charles was on duty.
