Overview of Common Failure-to-Function Refusals

March 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

Are you filing trademark applications involving sound recordings, t-shirts, or books? Would you like to learn more about less-common bars to federal trademark registration? If so, you’ll want to register for this free webinar.

We’ll provide an in-depth discussion of failure-to-function refusals and how to respond when your mark fails to indicate the source of your goods and services. Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • Ornamentation
  • Titles of single works
  • Names of authors and performing artists
  • Goods in trade/services for others

We’ll also cover best practices for selecting appropriate specimens and tips to consider before filing your application.

A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. You may submit your questions in advance to [email protected].

This webinar will use a high degree of legal terminology and concepts familiar to experienced trademark professionals, but we encourage trademark filers of all experience levels to attend. We’ll post a recording of the event on the Trademarks Webinar Series page within three weeks of the event. All registrants will receive an email with the video link when it is ready.
