I realize this comment won't make it on the site but I have to say I am a bit surprised with the Tuesday Trademark Tip appeal, and the applicant. This is most certainly a "WYHA?".. and the arguments.. Unitary? TIP capable of multiple meanings? I must be missing something. I won't be able to look at him the same. "..just the tip of the iceberg of Trademark law." LOL

Oooof, the FOREAL case, so many weird (frivolous?) filings in the proceedings. The Board must really get tired of pro se's like this, to say nothing of opposing counsel.
