Contract template sketch
About this template
This legal template, the Petition for Cancellation (Likelihood of Confusion and Dilution) TTAB, is a document that can be used in intellectual property law matters, particularly cases regarding trademark registration and protection. It is specifically designed to file a formal request with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) to cancel a registered trademark.

The template covers two main grounds for cancellation: likelihood of confusion and dilution. The likelihood of confusion claim asserts that the existing trademark is causing confusion among consumers due to its similarity with another trademark. It argues that this confusion can negatively impact market competition and infringe upon the petitioner's rights.

On the other hand, the dilution claim argues that the registered trademark has become so famous or well-known that any similar trademark would likely diminish its uniqueness and distinctiveness. It contends that such blurring or tarnishing of the famous trademark's reputation is harmful to the petitioner's interests and the public's perception of the mark.

The template provides a structured format for gathering all the necessary information, including the petitioner's details, the target trademark being challenged, and specific reasons supporting both the likelihood of confusion and dilution claims. It also offers a framework for presenting arguments and supporting evidence, including any prior disputes, consumer surveys, or examples of potential harm caused by the registered trademark.

Overall, the Petition for Cancellation (Likelihood of Confusion and Dilution) TTAB template is a comprehensive tool that assists individuals or legal professionals in initiating the cancellation process for a registered trademark that, according to their analysis, poses a risk of confusion or dilution in the market.
