Opp. No. 91209815 (T.T.A.B. Oct. 5, 2016)
The Firm, on behalf of our client Cartier International A.G., prevailed in an opposition proceeding before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Cartier had opposed an application to register the mark TRINITY in connection with leather handbags on the basis of likelihood of confusion with its own TRINITY mark for jewelry. The Board held that confusion was likely, finding that Cartier’s TRINITY mark was strong and that jewelry and handbags were related.
