Indeed.  LIKELIHOOD OF CONFUSION® is also not ready to weigh in on Star Athletica, LLC v. Varsity Brands, Inc., 136 S. Ct. 1823 – Supreme Court 2016.  To be truthful, I kind of danced around it when I first mentioned it on the blog here; I did sort of analyze it, though not particularly incisively, I’ll grant you, here; though at the end of this thing — trust me, you don’t have to watch it — I did venture that an affirmance seemed likely, albeit with some trimming or simplification.

What I will do is this.  Two things.  I will do for you two things.  First, a roundup, below.  Second, a blog post, yes, next week.  But it will be a very special blog post.  Unlike in the past, when I’ve done a roundup of a really big decision and sat back and, after benefiting from everyone else’s thinking, weighed in ponderously, we’re going to have, instead, a surprise special guest post by someone who is already legitimately thinking originally all by himself.  This of course is the premier variety of originally.

For now, here’s the roundup of my selection of tweets about the decision, courtesy of the Twitter embed, which makes this process a lot easier than it used to be.  There is a lot of food for thought here, and it is presented in no particular order:

We’re all definitely going to be busy with this stuff for a long time to come.
