Thanks, Chris. I've always just referred to it as the TTAB manual. I'd forgotten that it has an anagram as well.
As I've always said, people using this Forum should always consider who is participating and the source of the statements. I offer only experience, but that still does not make whatever I offer correct nor should it be construed as legal advice.
If I may offer, however, that in my experience, the type of scenario mentioned in IPLoya initial statement would not necessarily cause a prosecution examiner of IPLoya's application to automatically suspend unless the examiner was asked to suspend. He indicated that his application already exists as does the infringers. A prosecution examiner is not always aware of a TTAB proceeding unless told about it. Again, if IPLoya is at all unsure as to how to proceed, he should see the counsel of a TM-qualified attorney, such as yourself or the other attorneys participating on this list. Thanks.
