Opp. No. 91219587 (T.T.A.B. Aug. 8, 2017)
The Firm prevailed on behalf of client DC Comics (“DC”) before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (the “Board”) in an opposition involving THE FLASH character and related trademarks. DC had opposed an application to register the mark FLASH TEC together with a lightning bolt design in connection with clothing. In a lengthy decision dated August 8, 2017, the Board held that THE FLASH was “a valuable intellectual property asset with marketplace strength” and found that FLASH TEC was likely to cause confusion.
