Recent TTAB decisions and activity of note (Feb. 13 – 20, 2012)

Several important and interesting decisions or interesting procedural and discovery issues are highlighted in bold.

Here is a rundown of the activity of note from the TTAB in the last week (click link on TTAB action to open Board opinion):

Notes
92051344 2/14/2012 PLAIN`S MOT. FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT GRANTED Yes Respondent, from Pakistan, filed the underlying application based on an a registration from the European Union, claiming the registration was from his country of origin; Respondent had also claimed ownership of Pakistani application which had not matured to a registration at the time the US registration was issued. The Board found “as a matter of law, that respondent has not established the European Union as his country of origin, and that respondent’s ownership of Community Trade Mark Registration No. 005662887, issued by the European Union, cannot serve as a basis for registration under Section 44(e). Accordingly, respondent has no issued foreign registration on which he could rely at the time his U.S. registration issued under Section 44(e).” As a result, Petitioner’s MSJ granted and the registration was cancelled.
91192917 2/13/2012 PL`S MOT. FOR SUMM. JUDGMENT DENIED n Opposer’s motion to strike or to test sufficiency of Applicant’s responses to Requests for Admissions denied; Opposer’s MSJ denied; Motion to Compel Applicant’s appearance at deposition granted

accessories, namely, vehicle wheel caps and hub caps.” Applicant’s application to register FUTURE MOTORS refused for goods and services in Class 12, 35, and 40 for the same conflict. Prior Opposition involving Applicant found to have preclusive effect regarding FUTURE but not FUTURE MOTORS. Section 2(d) refusals both affirmed.
77522109 2/13/2012 BOARD`S DECISION: AFFIRMED n Refusal of Application for UNIDRIVE for “metal screws”  under Sect. 2(d) for likelihood of confusion with UNA-DRIV for “threaded fasteners-namely, bolts” affirmed.

91192408 2/17/2012 TRIAL DATES RESET n
Applicant’s motion to strike testimony deposition on basis of inadequate notice denied.
91201716 2/16/2012 TRIAL DATES RESET n Opposer’s motion to strike applicant’s response to the notice of opposition and to issue a notice of default granted and Applicant allowed 30 days to file an answer. Applicant’s response failed to comply with the Board rules for a number of reasons: it was a letter, submitted by a representative but not an attorney, and sent without proof of service on opposer.
91188863 2/16/2012 BOARD`S DECISION: DISMISSED n Opposer’s registered mark: MANGO (& Design) for “body soaps, perfumery, essential oils for personal use, cosmetics, hair lotions, and dentifrices” and other goods. Applicant’s mark: MANGO BEACH for “hand creams, body creams, face complexion creams and toners, massage oils, bubble baths, body cleansing gels, bath powders, soap, bath beads, skin moisturizing creams, sachets, body splash, light cologne and perfumes, room fragrances, and lip balms. Opposer’s claim of a famous mark failed. The common element found to be highly suggestive. Applicant’s mark, including the term BEACH, found to have a look and sound different from opposer’s mark, and as a result the Opposition was dismissed.
91189160 2/17/2012 BD`S DECISION: DISMISSED W/ PREJUDICE n Opposer responded to show cause order after if failed to file its main brief; opposer did not show excusable neglect and its brief was not considered. Since Opposer had not entered any testimony or other evidence, the Opposition was dismissed with prejudice.
91152248 2/16/2012 BOARD`S DECISION: SUSTAINED YES
Opposition to GUANTANAMERA for “tobacco, namely, cigars” on grounds that mark is primarily geographically descriptive under Sect. 2(e)(3) was sustained by TTAB in 2008. Case was then appealed to U.S. District Court of District of Columbia, and remanded back to the Board on Aug. 5, 2010 ‘so it may
apply the proper legal standard to the third part of the test for primarily geographically deceptively misdescriptive terms.” The Board sustained the Opposition, finding that “consumers would be materially influenced in the decision to purchase applicant’s cigars due to the geographic meaning of the mark in the Spanish language.  The case is also notable because the parties submitted more than 3,000 pages of evidence of this issue, and the Board ruled on several evidentiary issues.  In addition, a Motion to disqualify Applicant’s expert was denied, but Opposer’s objections to reliability of expert report concerning (a) the advertising and selling of Cuban cigar brands in US, and (b) consumer perception of the GUANTANAMERA brand, were sustained because the report was not reliable and did not explain methodology. “
92054462 2/14/2012 BOARD`S ORDER Respondent’s motion for relief from judgment after a default was entered against respondent for failure to file an answer is granted.
91197238 2/14/2012 D`S MOTION FOR RULE 56(D) DISCOVERY GRANTED, IN PART, DENIED, IN PART n Applicant’s motion for Rule 56(d) discovery following Opposer’s filing of MSJ granted in part so that Applicant may conduct discovery regarding Opposer’s continuous use, chain of title, and trade channels.
91202980 2/15/2012 D`S MOTION TO DISMISS DEEMED MOOT; D`S MOTION TO SUSPEND FOR CIVIL ACTION GRANTED n Applicant’s motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim (FRCP 12(b)6)) denied after Applicant amended its pleading to cure deficiencies. Applicant’s motion to supsend pending district court action seeking a declaratory judgment and involving Applicant’s mark is granted since the court could rule that Applicant’s mark has not acquired secondary meaning and such a ruling would impact the opposition claim of mere descriptiveness.
91190328 2/14/2012 MOTION DENIED; TRIAL DATES REMAIN AS SET n Applican’ts motion to consolidate two oppositions with different opposers denied despite being conceded by opposer’s since they did not file responses to the motion.
91193987 2/14/2012 SUSPENDED PENDING PETITION DECISION n Opposer’s motion to suspend proceeding pending action on Opopser’s petition for review of Board’s order by the Director (the order denied opposer’s motion to amend its pleading) is granted.
91201141 2/17/2012 PROCEEDINGS RESUMED n Applicant’s mark: MODS V ROCKERS for clothing and patches; Opposer’s claims common law rights in MODS V ROCKS in connection with organization and hosting of motorcycle and scooter events, and clothing and patches in connection therewith. Applicant filed motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim; Opposer filed an amended notice of opposition in response.  Opposer’s motion for leave to amend granted and Applicant’s motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim denied.
91202010 2/16/2012 PROCEEDINGS RESUMED n Applicant filed a combined motion to strike, to dismiss the dilution claim, and for partial judgment on the pleadings. To motion to strike sought to strike several lines from the notice of opposition referencing possible co-sponsorship of hte NCAA basketball tournement by the parties; because it was not clear if the statements were made in the context of settlement discussions, the Board denied the motion to strike. Regarding the motion to dismiss the dilution claim, Opposer fialed to allege that its mark became famous prior to applicant’s filing date; Opposer is granted leave to amend its pleading.  Applicant’s motion to for judgment on the pleadings regarding the claim of a lack of bona fide intent was denied by the Board, but the Board found the pleading insufficient and granted Opposer leave to amend.

CAFC rules on Coach Services, Inc. v. Triumph Learning, Inc.: affirmed regarding lack of confusion and dilution, remanded regarding acquired distinctiveness

Coach Services, Inc. v. Triumph Learning, Inc.decided by Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on February 21, 2012.

For the full opinion of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, see here.

For the TTAB’s earlier ruling, see here.

Brief Summary:

In September of 20102, the TTAB dismissed an opposition by Coach, the maker of handbags and accessories, against the mark COACH for educational software, holding that opposer’s likelihood of confusion and dilution claims failed. Opposer’s alternative argument that the applicant’s mark was merely descriptive was also dismissed by the Board after a finding that applicant sufficiently demonstrated acquired distinctiveness.

On appeal, the CAFC affirmed the finding dismissing the likelihood of confusion and dilution claims, but remanded regarding the acquired distinctiveness claim based on an evidenciary decision.

As a preliminary matter, the Court found that the Board properly struck opposer’s annual reports submitted as testimony because they were not submitted in accordance with the Board’s rules and were not otherwise authenticated. Opposer argued that because its annual reports from 2001 to 2008 were available online, the Board should have accepted the printed versions of the reports. Regarding the likelihood of confusion claim, the Court agreed that while the marks are identical in sound and appearance they have different meanings and commercial impressions when applied to the respective goods. After weighing the DuPont factors, the Court agreed with the Board “that customer confusion is not likely between the parties’ respective COACH marks.”

Regarding the claim of dilution, the Court agreed that the dilution claim fails because oppose did not introduce sufficient evidence to demonstrate that its mark was famous for purposes of dilution prior to the filing of applicant’s application.

Regarding the Board’s finding that applicant’s use of COACH is descriptive but has acquired distinctiveness, the Court agreed that it is descriptive. But the Court found that the Board erred regarding the handling of evidence of Applicant’s documents showing use of its mark before July 2003, and remanded to the Board to “the weight, if any, to be given to pre-July 2003 documents in the absence of any testimony authenticating them or addressing their use. The Board must then assess whether these apparent gaps in Triumph’s proofs impact the Board’s determination that the mark was in continuous use during any relevant period.”

“Goats on a roof” trademark survives petition for cancellation

One of my favorite non-traditional trademarks is for “goats on a roof”.  Having “building décor with a roof comprised of grass and bearing several goats on the roof” is registered for restaurant services and for retail on and online retail store services featuring gifts, food and clothing. The registration is owned by Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant and Butik. The “drawing” of the mark in Registration No. 2007624 looks like this:

Robert Doyle petitioned to cancel the registration’s owned by Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant and Butik. Doyle essentially claimed the mark was functional since it helped keep the temperature lower below. Al Johnson’s brought a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim.

The Board ruled that Petitioner did not properly allege standing. Petitioner claimed an interest in taking photographs. The Board noted that

While respondent’s Registrations might prevent petitioner from using any photographs of goats on sod roofs as a service mark in connection with restaurant or gift shop services, or related services, petitioner has not alleged that he uses or wants to use the desired photographs in such a manner, or that he has any right to do so…. In short, petitioner alleges that he wants to take photographs of goats on roofs, but does not allege that anything about respondent’s mark or Registrations prevents him from doing so.

The Board also found that the functionality claim, as alleged, had no merit

[W]hile petitioner alleges that respondent’s goats and sod roof affect respondent’s costs, by reducing respondent’s energy and mowing expenses, this allegation is
not specific, and is in fact completely unrelated, to restaurant or gift shop services.

Therefore, the Board dismissed the claims in a precedential opinion. See here for full opinion. However, Petitioner has 20 days to file an amended Petition for cancellation that properly alleges standing and a claim regarding functionality. The Board also took an unusual step of noting that the “Petitioner should also be aware of the extreme difficulties he would likely face in ultimately proving that respondent’s mark is functional.”
