CHICAGO, Oct. 05, 2010 – A new resource from the American Bar Association, A Legal Strategist’s Guide to Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Practice, provides a comprehensive look at the proceedings of the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. As the first book of its kind to examine Board practices, the new guide is an essential resource for all trademark practitioners.
Edited by Jonathan Hudis, an expert in trademark and copyright law, the guide features commentary from several leading trademark lawyers and TTAB specialists, who detail and analyze each facet of Board practice and procedure, including:
- Inter partes proceedings (such as oppositions, cancellations, and concurrent-use proceedings);
- Ex parte appeals to the Board from refusals to register marks;
- Disclosures and discovery;
- Motion practice;
- Evidence presentation at trial;
- Use of experts;
- Briefs on final hearing and oral argument;
- Appeals from final TTAB decisions;
- Settlement, alternative dispute resolution and accelerated case resolution; and
- Ethical issues when practicing before the Board.
Published with the needs of both TTAB novices and veterans in mind, the annotated guide combines legal expertise with practical insights. It includes sample forms, practice tips and checklists of items that practitioners should bear in mind during Board proceedings.
