Recently the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (“TTAB”) granted The Trademark Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment in the matter of Dainese S.p.A vs. Roxy Holden, Opposition No.91210140.

On April 9, 2013 Dainese S.p.A filed an Opposition Proceeding seeking to block the registration of the trademark SYCKK RACING and design owned by Ms. Holden in regard to clothing, helmets, and other items relating to motorcycles.

Following the completion of Plaintiff’s trial period, The Trademark Company quickly moved for summary judgment on the grounds that Plaintiff had failed to provide sufficient evidence upon which the TTAB could find in its favor.

Siding with Ms. Holden, on May 24, 2014 the TTAB granted The Trademark Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment and dismissed the case with prejudice against the Plaintiff permitting Mr. Holden’s trademark SYCKK RACING and design to register.
