Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Manual updated to include new precedents

The June 2022 update of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Manual of Procedure (TBMP) is now available on the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) webpage under “Practice and procedure.” The revision includes precedential citations to legal opinions from the TTAB and the Federal Circuit made between February 28, 2021, and March 4, 2022. The modification reflects changes due to the Trademark Modernization Act of 2020, including a new Chapter 1300 “Ex Parte Appeals from Expungement or Reexamination of Registration Proceedings.”
