The Basics of TTAB Opposition and Cancellation Proceedings

This webinar has ended.


Suppose that another person or entity has applied for a trademark registration at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that is similar to your trademark. Or, perhaps, you learn that another person or entity has already registered a trademark that you do not believe should have been registered. What can you do? One option is to institute either an opposition or cancellation proceeding at the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).
