Anyone Can Make An Adhesive Container Cap Consisting Of Four Flat Wings


Federal Circuit case upholding dismissal of trademark application of Pacer Technology (makers of Super Glue) to register the shape of its adhesive container cap, consisting of four flat wings. The PTO showed absence of distinctiveness by proffering design patents with drawings for somewhat similar caps.  Note: the PTO drawing of the application drawing is illegible.  The decision contains a nice clear drawing of the adhesive container cap.
