Jack Wolfskin Ausrustung Fur Draussen GmbH & Co. KGAA (“Wolfskin”) applied to register a design mark consisting of an angled paw print for use with its clothing, footwear, and accessory products. New Millennium (“NM”) filed an opposition asserting that Wolfskin’s mark would likely create confusion with NM’s KELME mark. Wolfskin denied the allegation and counterclaimed to cancel NM’s KELME mark for abandonment. The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (“Board”) sustained NM’s opposition and refused Wolfskin’s application.
