CAFC and TTAB Registration Decisions: July 2015 to April 2017

Here is a bit of reading material for your trip to the INTA annual meeting in Barelona: "Decisions of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and the Federal Circuit on Registrability Issues: July 2015 to April 2017." This paper (pdf here) categorizes and summarizes the precedential opinions of the CAFC and TTAB over the last twenty-two months. I will be discussing a number of these cases in my presentation on Wednesday morning, May 24th. An expanded discussion of many of the decisions (i.e, the decisions published in the USPQ between July 2015 and June 2016) appears in "The Sixty-Ninth Year of Administration of the U.S. Trademark (Lanham) Act of 1946," published in February by The Trademark Reporter (TTABlogged here).
