Applicant Nieves & Nieves LLC has applied to register the mark PRINCESS KATE in connection with various body, skin care and cosmetic products in Class 3; jewelry products in Class 14; handbags and similar products in Class 18; bedding in Class 24; and clothing items in Class 25. Not surprisingly, the application was refused, based on the false suggestion of a connection under Section 2(a) of the Lanham Act and also because the mark consists of a name of a living individual whose consent is not of record under Section 2(c) of the Lanham Act. The application was filed in November 2010, and was actually approved for publication before it was pulled and a second and then Final Office Action issued. That Final Refusal has been appealed by the Applicant to the TTAB and the oral hearing is scheduled for March 20th of this month.
