LAWYERS.COM Unregistrable As Generic Term


Citable TTAB decision rejecting application for LAWYERS.COM on genericness grounds.
Echoing TTablog, my reaction to the decision was ‘coulda told you that in fewer than 29 pages’ although to be fair to the Board, most of the decision is concerned with shutting down a ploy in drafting applications for [generic].com marks.
Trademarks build brands and domain names build pre-brand traffic. When it comes to generic domain names, it appears that you cannot have everything (though some of us will keep trying).
