BBA Webinar: Let’s Go For A Spin! Tips and Tricks for Avoiding Trademark Genericide

Wednesday, October 20, 2021 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM
On-Line


Description:

The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link.

Hear from leading trademark industry professionals in a discussion on how to avoid trademark genericide, a recent hot topic as several companies have been fighting to keep their trademarks from becoming generic. For example, indoor cycling company Peloton recently filed a cancellation proceeding against Mad Dogg Athletics to cancel their trademarks SPIN® and SPINNING ® as generic for indoor cycling classes. 

The discussion will review how trademarks become generic, what you can do to avoid trademark genericide, and will feature an examination of recent cases surrounding trademarks that have become generic.
