91181440

02/21/2012

BOARD`S DECISION: DISMISSED

N

Consolidated opposition and cancellation:-          Applicant’s marks: BERYLL & Cross Designs for (a) jewelry, leather accessories and furniture, (b) sunglasses, cloths and clothing, and (c) sunglasses jewelry, leather items and clothing

–          Opposer’s mark: PLUS SYSTEM and 3 different cross designs for sunglasses

–          Claims: Likelihood of confusion and priority; lack of use on sunglass and eyeglass goods; and fraud regarding one of the registrations

Opposer moved to strike a variety of evidence. Excluded evidence included: references to third party registrations without the registration certificates (“The Board does not take judicial notice of registrations that reside in the USPTO”); hearsay from a telephone conference from receptionist at a store;

Regarding Wikipedia evidence: the board considered it but noted that probative value is limited. Information about logos from a logo website are not considered for “the truth of any matters stated therein, such as proving that any of the depicted goods have been, or are being, offered for sale or distribution.”

Regarding Opposer’s statements made in the prosecution of one of its registrations regarding a lack of confusion, they may be used as evidence as an admission against interest but will not relieve the Board of its burden to reach its own conclusion.

Opposer objected to testimony of a third party witness as biased since Opposer has filed a petition to cancel the 3rd parties’ registration was denied.

Ruling: Fraud claim fell short and was dismissed, and the marks at issue “simply too dissimilar to support a finding of likelihood of confusion.” As a result, the Petition/Opposition was dismissed.

91199336

02/24/2012

BOARD`S DECISION: DISMISSED

N

Applicant motion for judgment on the pleadings regarding Section 2(d) claim granted as the board found the two winged design marks too dissimilar despite nearly identical goods “and that a likelihood of confusion cannot exist as a matter of law based on the dispositive nature of the first du Pont factor in this case; furthermore the Board rules sua sponte that the dilution by blurring claim – although not part of the motion – also cannot exist as a matter of law, and Opposition dismissed in its entirety.

91185011

02/23/2012

BD`S DECISION: DISMISSED W/ PREJUDICE

N

Opposer submitted no evidence during its testimony period. Applicant moved to dismiss for failure to prosecute; Opposer moved to reopen its testimony period. Board denied Opposer’s motion to reopen and applicant’s motion to dismiss granted.

92049692

02/22/2012

BOARD`S DECISION: GRANTED

Y

Petition to cancel Respondent’s mark (“Shut It Down” for clothing and related goods) on grounds of abandonment and fraud. Respondent failed to follow rules of practice and failed to submit a valid brief or any testimony. Respondent admitted it never used many of the goods listed in the registrations description, and those are deemed abandoned. As to goods allegedly in use, Respondent showed no evidence of sales for several years prior to the filing of the petition for cancellation and abandonment also found. The registration was also found to be void ab initio as Respondent showed no real use on any goods and admitted non-use on over 100 listed goods.

92054628

02/23/2012

BOARD`S DECISION: GRANTED

N

Petitioner sought partial cancellation of registration for HIGHWAY HAWK for “motorcycle helmets” on grounds of abandonment and no bona fide intent to use the mark; via subsequent limitation of the underlying international registration at WIPO, the USPTO registration limited to delete “motorcycle helmets.” As a result of the amendment without consent to Petitioner, the judgment is entered against respondent and the registration cancelled as to “motorcycle helmets.”
