Washington, DC – June 25, 2021 – Mei & Mark Attorneys Larry Sandell and Rob Kimmer’s potentially ground-breaking Trademark appeal on Intent to Use Applications for goods that are not currently legal continues to march forward: The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) has scheduled an oral hearing on for 1 PM ET on July 20. Larry Sandell will be arguing on behalf of Mei & Mark client, For Joy, a CBD tea company.
The case is being watched closely by Trademark attorneys and cannabis industry leaders alike. The Canna Law Blog (TM) has observed: “If Joy Tea prevails, it will mark a dramatic before-and-after when it comes to cannabis trademarks. Cannabis companies would do well to start getting ready to file what may soon be known as Joy Tea applications.”
