The 10 worst things that have happened to trademarking in the past decade
A list of the ten worst things the US Patent and Trademark Office has done in the last decade, including the removal of a trademark from its site, the deletion of a patent, and a trademarking crackdown on online companies.
The list includes everything from the deletion and sale of a company’s name to a company getting sued by another.

The USPOT has previously banned several trademark applications, including those related to “Boys and Girls Clubs of America” and “Beverly Hills Barbershop”.
In an effort to address the “corporate confusion” caused by the USP, the agency has issued a statement calling for the removal from the US PTO’s site of the word “beverly”, a trademark that the US government uses to protect businesses and individuals.
The move comes after the US Congress recently passed a bill called the Trademark Fairness Act, which seeks to address a “corrupt and abusive” practice that the PTO has repeatedly taken to its own website.
The US Patent & Trademark office previously took down the word from the POT website in 2017, and the agency later reversed itself and reinstated it.

In the wake of the removal, B&s claim was that the trademark was invalid.
In its statement, the Pots said it is “reviewing” the B&ams lawsuit and “working with our partners to determine whether it can be resolved in a manner that ensures the protection of the B &B brand”.
In 2017, the USPT ruled against a suit filed by the National Hockey League, alleging the NHL’s logo and colours were disparaging to minority groups.
It also rejected a lawsuit brought by the New York-based artist, Mark Rothko.
