Although practice before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) may feel familiar for federal court practitioners, there are many traps for the unwary. This panel will discuss advanced practice tips for litigation before the TTAB, including non-obvious practical do’s and don’ts of TTAB practice and insights into how counsel can best present a case before the TTAB. The panel will touch on the Trademark Modernization Act and the recent uptick in questionable trademark application filings by non-US parties.
