Significant Matters

We succeeded in having two of our clients' trademarks declared to be "famous marks" by the US Trademark Trial and Appeal Board:

  1.   Major League Baseball's mark WORLD SERIES.  (Opposition No. 91200934).
  2.   ESRT Empire State Building's mark EMPIRE STATE BUILDING IMAGE (Opposition No. 91204122).

The TTAB also decided that the designations 1.0, 1.25 and 1.5 in plain or stylized letters are generic for cigarette rolling papers and could be freely used by our client. (Opposition No. 9158276).

We obtained a decision from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that the graphic designs on our client's cheerleading uniforms is copyrightable.  This decision is before the US Supreme Court.
