Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Practice: A Comprehensive Review explains the Board’s authority and the limits on its authority, when a party can or must resolve a dispute before the Board, when it can’t, and how Board proceedings compare to litigation in other forums. Other topics covered include the following:

  • Inter partes and ex parte proceedings:
  • Opposition, cancellation, concurrent use, and interference proceedings;
  • Ex parte appeals;
  • Standing, service of process, discovery, motion practice, and trial procedure
  • “Dilution,” “mere descriptiveness,” and “acquired distinctiveness”;
  • “Likelihood of confusion”; and
  • Appeals from Board decisions in the federal courts
