TTAB Citable Decisions Available Via the TTABlog
John Welch at the TTABlog has been kind enough to set out a list of the citable decisions from the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, arranged by category and accompanied by a comment or two regarding each. According to John,
Decisions of particular note include three Section 2(d) cases: Knight Textile, in which third-party registration evidence led the Board to dismiss an opposition involving the addition of Applicant’s house mark NAUGHTON McNAUGHTON to the Opposer’s registered mark ESSENTIALS; Blue Man Productions, wherein the Board set a high standard for proof of fame in a Section 2(d) context; and Carefirst of Maryland, in which the Board found the marks CAREFIRST and FIRSTCAROLINACARE not to be “identical or very or substantially similar,” as required for a dilution claim.
