Electric… what?!

From the TTABlog® — not the brightest argument in the legal chandelier:

Applicant Electric Visual Evolution argued that “the term ‘electric’ is not commonly used by the general public to describe a source of power for watches,” . . .

Do you need much illumination as to how this one came out at on appeal?

Unfortunately for Applicant, the PTO’s website pages and news articles demonstrated that, time and again, the term “electric watch” is used to describe or name watches are powered by electricity. Applicant’s argument, on the other wrist, was unsupported by evidence.

Lights on — nobody’s home!
