LaFrance on the Registration of Sound Marks on the Principal Register
Response or Comment
In a pair of precedential decisions addressing a novel question of law, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board first created, and then applied, a standard for determining whether a sound is sufficiently distinctive to qualify for registration on the Principal Register under section 2 of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1052. Mary LaFrance analyzes these decisions and discusses their effects.
