Yours truly, the TTABlogger, will be heading down to our Nation’s Capital for the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) in Washington, D.C. (Register here). The TrademarkTrack will be presented on Thursday, October 27th. My topic? Wait for it ………….. TTAB Developments! (Brochure here).
The Trademark Track will include a review of the new TTAB Rules of Practice (which will go into effect on January 17, 2017), a panel discussion on disparaging, immoral, and scandalous trademarks (how timely!), and a discussion of USPTO Examination and TTAB Updates (by Commissioner Denison, Deputy Commissioner Marsh, and TTAB Chief Judge Rogers).
