In B&B Hardware v Hargis Industries, the Supreme Court has held that a decision of the TTAB denying registration of a trademark on likelihood of confusion grounds can have preclusive effect in a later district court infringement action.

DAILY: Japanese company turns counterfeit headache into market entry strategy

There is a wide range of common reactions when a company makes the all-too-common discovery that counterfeit versions of its products are being produced and sold in China.

More...

DAILY: Offering of services without actual use does not qualify as use for basis of registration

In Couture v Playdom Inc, in a precedential ruling, the Federal Circuit has held that the advertising or offering of a service, without actually providing the service, cannot constitute use in commerce sufficient to support a service mark registration.

More...

DAILY: H&M's COS mark not confusingly similar to Greek island of Kos

The Federal Administrative Court has overturned a decision of the Federal Institute of Intellectual Property refusing to register the mark COS in the name of H&M on the ground that the sign referred to the Greek island of Kos and would be deceptive if the goods did not originate from Greece.

The US Supreme Court has handed down its decision in B&B Hardware v Hargis Industries, addressing the level of deference that should be afforded to findings made by the TTAB on likelihood of confusion.

More...

DAILY: New notarial law favourably impacts costs and timeframes for foreign mark owners

Following some legal challenges, a new notarial law has finally come into force, superseding a 150-year-old law. In essence, the new law removes the notarial functions from the judiciary and passes them on to the executive branch. For trademark owners, this means faster local procedures and somewhat lower out-of-pocket expenses.;

DAILY: TTAB reverses refusal of application for monster truck trade dress

In In re Frankish Enterprises Ltd, the TTAB has issued a precedential ruling that helps clarify US trademark law with respect to the registrability of trade dress used in connection with services.

More...

DAILY: Unregistered design right in style of jeans held to be infringed

In G-Star Raw CV v Rhodi Limited, G-Star has been broadly successful in its action against Rhodi Limited and others for secondary infringement of its UK unregistered design rights in its iconic three-panel jeans, the 'Arc Pant'.
