DavidPontious: First SCOTUS opinion of the day: Patent and Trademark Office v. https://t.co/eLG9v3qs4y B. V. "Held: A term styled "https://t.co/czwS6ER4wp" is a generic name for a class of goods or services only if the term has that meaning to consumers." https://t.co/m3w1y4X6lA
wetrat: But can they trademark "Booking.yeah"?or "Booking.YoMama"
bhcompy: This seems like a common sense decision. Good to see something the bulk of the court agrees on
eKonk: My question: Let's say the company decides to no longer pay for the url. Can they use their trademark to prevent someone else from using it?
