Snoop Dogg and Toronto Maple Leafs Battle Over "Leafs" Trademark

Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
The lawyers on both sides have been trying to settle this for quite some time. They couldn't do it during the extension of time to oppose so now Leafs the hockey team had to
formally oppose Snoop's trademarks to buy more time. If this does not get settled, it may create an important precedent that would show how USPTO's Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) views trademark applications parodying other well-known trademarks in respect of products and services in completely unrelated industries.
