Alt Legal WebinarNo More Reservations for Courts Confirm It’s a Trademark

Thursday, September 10, 2020


Watch Now

How can a name be generic when the PTO admits it is logically and grammatically impossible to use generically? How can it be anticompetitive to protect a name that it is impossible for the competition to use? These questions were central to the recent USPTO v. case. In this webinar, Foley & Lardner partner Jonathan Moskin discusses his seven years’ work on the landmark case. He discusses the team’s process of effectively appealing the PTO’s decision as well as the implications for future trademark prosecution. Topics include:

  • The process of appealing the USPTO v. case
  • The process for crafting an effective strategy to argue for the trademark registration
  • What the decision means for future dot-com trademark registrations
  • What problems in the trademark prosecution and review process this case exposes
