Fitzpatrick Trademark Update - Fall 2016 Edition
October 5, 2016
The Fall 2016 edition of Fitzpatrick’s Trademark Law and Practice Update provides an update on the Supreme Court’s next foray into trademark law. Just last week the Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal in a case with interesting constitutional implications with respect to the Lanham Act. The Update also discusses five recent precedential decisions from the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board focusing on issues such as the registrability of marijuana-related trademarks, the impact of a utility patent on a trademark application, and the protection of the color white.
