The Patent and Trademark Office has denied reconsideration of its denial of John Welch’s application for a registration for TTABLOG. John has appealed — to the Trademark Trial  and Appeals Board (TTAB).

Well, of course, John. How could it be otherwise? Your application was never meant to be granted anywhere south of the topic of your blog, and the examiner knew that. This is shaping up to be one of the great self-referential trademark adventures of the last four to five months! And what else is blogging about, after all?
