While practicing in front of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) does have the look and feel of being in a Federal Court, there are several different rules and procedures that any practitioner should be aware of before heading into court.
In this program, attorney Anthony Verna takes you through the nuances of practicing in a TTAB court. Mr. Verna begins this presentation by discussing who can bring and defend a suit in front of the TTAB. From there he discusses defining goals before proceeding to the TTAB. Mr. Verna concludes by giving real life examples of complex hurdles presented when practicing in front of the TTAB and how to overcome them. This course is updated with some new rules changes for 2017.
Very comprehensive. This course packs a LOT of material into a relatively short time. Excellent use of the printed materials helps in getting maximum “bang for the buck” by putting all relevant cases into materials and then just referring to materials in the lecture rather than spending time spelling out long citations twice orally in the lecture
