Tamara's Tips

A recent Trademark Trial and Appeal Board decision in In re DePorter found that a particular hashtag was not eligible for trademark protection.

Sometimes a trademark application is just too funny for words.  As Newsweek first reported, Proctor & Gamble is seeking trademark protection for WTF, LOL, and FML in connection with dishwashing soap and air fresheners.

 I love this article I recently came across discussing the economics of trademark applications.  I found it interesting that more than 30,000 applications filed in 2017 are now dead.  This cost the filers more than $56 million!
