An Introduction to Practicing Before the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board

1h 30m

Created on December 28, 2017




While many attorneys are familiar with proceedings in state and federal courts, a case before the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board (TTAB) is a special appearance before a federal administrative court. Many trademark applicants, especially pro se applicants, are unaware that filing a trademark application may result in appearing before the TTAB or defending a challenge of the application's existence by third parties.

In this updated course, trademark attorney Anthony Verna will familiarize attorneys with the TTAB as a whole and the very specific rhythm of such a case. The program is also updated to include new rule changes in 2017.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Familiarize yourself with trademark opposition
  2. Identify interested parties
  3. Grasp claims by plaintiffs and defendants
  4. Explore lessons learned through practice
  5. Review recent rule changes related to TTAB practice
