Amicus Brief

United States Patent and Trademark Office v. B.V.

Published: February 19, 2020


U.S. Supreme Court

Our Position

The Court should consider survey evidence when deciding whether a mark is generic or descriptive and should not be limited to cases involving “coined” terms. Furthermore, the Court should affirm that there is no per se rule for the protectability of generic marks with addition by an online business of a generic top-level domain (‘.com’).
