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).

Our decision from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that the graphic designs on our client's cheerleading uniforms is copyrightable was affirmed by the US Supreme Court.
