Answer To 'Test Your Skills' Problem re SURFVIVOR


Pencils down.  We asked whether, if you were reviewing a trademark search, whether you would clear SURVIVOR for sunscreen if there was a prior rights holder for SURFVIVOR for identical goods.  In this Ninth Circuit decision, the Court affirmed dismissal on summary judgment that plaintiff did not prove that the marks were confusingly similar.
