The May 2020 issue of Sterne Kessler's MarkIt to Market® newsletter discusses two recent precedential TTAB decisions – one regarding disclaimer scope and the other exploring how to successfully claim trademark rights in the title of a single creative work. We also discuss a recent Federal Court copyright decision applying the Supreme Court's separability test, and provide an update on current open gTLD sunrise periods.
Additionally, the firm is celebrating a trademark infringement win in District Court for our client Lamborghini! Read more about the case here.
