A TTAB judge once said to me that one can predict the outcome of a Section 2(d) case 95% of the time just by looking at the marks and the goods or services. Here are three recent decisions in appeals from Section 2(d) refusals. No hints this time. How do you think these came out? [Answers in first comment].
In re Minted, LLC, Serial No. 88031150 (August 19, 2020) [not precedential] (Opinion by Judge Cindy B. Greenbaum) [Section 2(d) refusal of PIPPA for “Paper products, namely, stationery, envelopes, printed invitations, announcement cards, note cards, and greeting cards,” in view of the registered mark PIPPA & CO. for “Retail store services in the field of party supplies” [& CO. disclaimed].
