`
`Trademark Act Section 2(d) bars registration of an applied-for mark that is so similar to a registered mark that it is likely consumers would be
`confused, mistaken, or deceived as to the commercial source of the goods of the parties.  See 15 U.S.C. §1052(d).  Likelihood of confusion is
`determined on a case-by-case basis by applying the factors set forth in In re E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., 476 F.2d 1357, 1361, 177 USPQ
`563, 567 (C.C.P.A. 1973) (called the “ du Pont factors”).   In re i.am.symbolic, llc, 866 F.3d 1315, 1322, 123 USPQ2d 1744, 1747 (Fed. Cir.
`2017).  Only those factors that are “relevant and of record” need be considered.   M2 Software, Inc. v. M2 Commc’ns, Inc. , 450 F.3d 1378,
`1382, 78 USPQ2d 1944, 1947 (Fed. Cir. 2006) (citing Shen Mfg. Co. v. Ritz Hotel Ltd., 393 F.3d 1238, 1241, 73 USPQ2d 1350, 1353
`
`(Fed. Cir. 2004)); see In re Inn at St. John’s, LLC , 126 USPQ2d 1742, 1744 (TTAB 2018).  
`
`Although not all du Pont factors may be relevant, there are generally two key considerations in any likelihood of confusion analysis:  (1) the
`similarities between the compared marks and (2) the relatedness of the compared goods.  See In re i.am.symbolic, llc, 866 F.3d at 1322, 123
`USPQ2d at 1747 (quoting Herbko Int’l, Inc. v. Kappa Books, Inc. , 308 F.3d 1156, 1164-65, 64 USPQ2d 1375, 1380 (Fed. Cir. 2002));
`Federated Foods, Inc. v. Fort Howard Paper Co., 544 F.2d 1098, 1103, 192 USPQ 24, 29 (C.C.P.A. 1976) (“The fundamental inquiry mandated
`by [Section] 2(d) goes to the cumulative effect of differences in the essential characteristics of the goods [or services] and differences in the
`marks.”); TMEP §1207.01.
`
`Comparison of the Marks
`
`Marks are compared in their entireties for similarities in appearance, sound, connotation, and commercial impression.  Stone Lion Capital
`Partners, LP v. Lion Capital LLP, 746 F.3d 1317, 1321, 110 USPQ2d 1157, 1160 (Fed. Cir. 2014) (quoting Palm Bay Imps., Inc. v. Veuve
`







`

`

`Clicquot Ponsardin Maison Fondee En 1772, 396 F.3d 1369, 1371, 73 USPQ2d 1689, 1691 (Fed. Cir. 2005)); TMEP §1207.01(b)-(b)(v). 
`“Similarity in any one of these elements may be sufficient to find the marks confusingly similar.”   In re Inn at St. John’s, LLC , 126 USPQ2d
`1742, 1746 (TTAB 2018) (citing In re Davia, 110 USPQ2d 1810, 1812 (TTAB 2014)); TMEP §1207.01(b).
`
`In this case, applicant’s mark is CAS TOKEN and registrant’s marks are TOKEN CASH.  These marks contain almost identical transposed
`terms.
`
`Confusion is likely between two marks consisting of reverse combinations of the same elements if they convey the same meaning or create
`substantially similar commercial impressions.  TMEP §1207.01(b)(vii); see, e.g., In re Wine Soc’y of Am. Inc. , 12 USPQ2d 1139, 1142 (TTAB
`1989) (holding THE WINE SOCIETY OF AMERICA and design for wine club membership services including the supplying of printed
`materials likely to be confused with AMERICAN WINE SOCIETY 1967 and design for newsletters, bulletins, and journals); In re Nationwide
`Indus. Inc., 6 USPQ2d 1882, 1884 (TTAB 1988) (holding RUST BUSTER for a rust-penetrating spray lubricant likely to be confused with
`BUST RUST for a penetrating oil).
`
`Therefore, the marks are confusingly similar.
`
`Comparison of the Goods & Services
`
`The compared goods and services need not be identical or even competitive to find a likelihood of confusion.  See On-line Careline Inc. v. Am.
`Online Inc., 229 F.3d 1080, 1086, 56 USPQ2d 1471, 1475 (Fed. Cir. 2000); Recot, Inc. v. Becton, 214 F.3d 1322, 1329, 54 USPQ2d 1894, 1898
`(Fed. Cir. 2000); TMEP §1207.01(a)(i).  They need only be “related in some manner and/or if the circumstances surrounding their marketing are
`such that they could give rise to the mistaken belief that [the goods and services] emanate from the same source.”   Coach Servs., Inc. v. Triumph
`Learning LLC, 668 F.3d 1356, 1369, 101 USPQ2d 1713, 1722 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (quoting 7-Eleven Inc. v. Wechsler, 83 USPQ2d 1715, 1724
`(TTAB 2007)); TMEP §1207.01(a)(i).
`
`In this case, both applicant and registrant provide financial and currency transaction software in Class 9, and both provide financial and monetary
`services, particularly in the field of currency, in Class 36, as listed in full in the section above.
`
`Determining likelihood of confusion is based on the description of the goods and/or services stated in the application and registration at issue, not
`on extrinsic evidence of actual use.  See In re Detroit Athletic Co., 903 F.3d 1297, 1307, 128 USPQ2d 1047, 1052 (Fed. Cir. 2018) (citing In re
`
`i.am.symbolic, llc, 866 F.3d 1315, 1325, 123 USPQ2d 1744, 1749 (Fed. Cir. 2017)).   
`
`In this case, the application uses broad wording to describe its financial software and financial services, which presumably encompasses all goods
`and services of the type described, including registrant’s more narrow financial transaction software, and financial services in a variety of areas,
`including in the field of fund transfers and transfer of virtual currency.  See, e.g., In re Solid State Design Inc., 125 USPQ2d 1409, 1412-15
`(TTAB 2018); Sw. Mgmt., Inc. v. Ocinomled, Ltd., 115 USPQ2d 1007, 1025 (TTAB 2015).  Thus, applicant’s and registrant’s goods and
`services are legally identical.   See, e.g., In re i.am.symbolic, llc, 127 USPQ2d 1627, 1629 (TTAB 2018) (citing Tuxedo Monopoly, Inc. v.Gen.
`Mills Fun Grp., Inc., 648 F.2d 1335, 1336, 209 USPQ 986, 988 (C.C.P.A. 1981); Inter IKEA Sys. B.V. v. Akea, LLC, 110 USPQ2d 1734, 1745
`(TTAB 2014); Baseball Am. Inc. v. Powerplay Sports Ltd., 71 USPQ2d 1844, 1847 n.9 (TTAB 2004)).
`
`Additionally, the goods and services of the parties have no restrictions as to nature, type, channels of trade, or classes of purchasers and are
`“presumed to travel in the same channels of trade to the same class of purchasers.”   In re Viterra Inc., 671 F.3d 1358, 1362, 101 USPQ2d 1905,
`1908 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (quoting Hewlett-Packard Co. v. Packard Press, Inc., 281 F.3d 1261, 1268, 62 USPQ2d 1001, 1005 (Fed. Cir. 2002)). 
`Thus, applicant’s and registrant’s goods and services are related.
`
`Considering all of the above, applicant’s mark is refused registration due to a likelihood of confusion with registrant’s mark under Section 2(d)
`of the Trademark Act.
`
`Although applicant’s mark has been refused registration, applicant may respond to the refusal by submitting evidence and arguments in support
`of registration.  However, if applicant responds to the refusal, applicant must also respond to the requirements set forth below.
`
`DISCLAIMER REQUIRED
`
`Applicant must provide a disclaimer of the unregistrable part of the applied-for mark even though the mark as a whole appears to be registrable. 
`See 15 U.S.C. §1056(a); TMEP §§1213, 1213.03(a).  A disclaimer of an unregistrable part of a mark will not affect the mark’s appearance.   See
`Schwarzkopf v. John H. Breck, Inc., 340 F.2d 978, 979-80, 144 USPQ 433, 433 (C.C.P.A. 1965).
`
`In this case, applicant must disclaim the wording “TOKEN” because it is not inherently distinctive.   This unregistrable term at best is merely
`descriptive of an ingredient, quality, characteristic, function, feature, purpose, or use of applicant’s goods and services.   See 15 U.S.C.
`§1052(e)(1); DuoProSS Meditech Corp. v. Inviro Med. Devices, Ltd., 695 F.3d 1247, 1251, 103 USPQ2d 1753, 1755 (Fed. Cir. 2012); TMEP
`













`

`

`§§1213, 1213.03(a).  
`
`The attached evidence from the dictionary shows this wording is commonly used in connection with similar goods and services to mean an
`electronic device or piece of software that serves as proof of identity of a user, so as to access a network.  See
`https://www.ahdictionary.com/word/search.html?q=token.  Third parties frequently use this to describe a digital asset, or interchangeably with
`the term “cryptocurrency.”   See https://cryptocurrencyfacts.com/what-is-a-cryptocurrency-token/ (explaining the general definition of and
`different uses of the term “token” in the cryptocurrency industry).   Thus, the wording merely describes applicant’s goods and services because
`applicant’s goods and services allow a user to gain access to a software platform for financial transactions, including those for trading and
`arranging digital and virtual currency.
`
`Applicant may respond to this issue by submitting a disclaimer in the following format:  
`No claim is made to the exclusive right to use “TOKEN” apart from the mark as shown.   
`
`For an overview of disclaimers and instructions on how to satisfy this issue using the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS), see the
`
`Disclaimer webpage.  
`
`EXPLANATION OF MARK’S SIGNIFICANCE REQUIRED
`
`To permit proper examination of the application, applicant must explain whether the letters in the mark “CAS” have any significance in the
`cryptocurrency trade or industry or as applied to applicant’s goods and services, or if such letters represent a “term of art” within applicant’s
`industry.  See 37 C.F.R. §2.61(b); TMEP §814.  Failure to comply with a request for information is grounds for refusing registration.  In re
`Harley, 119 USPQ2d 1755, 1757-58 (TTAB 2016); TMEP §814.
`
`LEGAL ENTITY & CITIZENSHIP REQUIRED
`
`Applicant must specify its form of business or type of legal entity and its national citizenship or foreign country of organization or incorporation. 
`See 37 C.F.R. §§2.32(a)(3)(i)-(ii), 7.25(a)-(b); TMEP §§803.03, 803.04, 1904.02(a).  This information is required in all U.S. trademark
`applications, including those filed under Trademark Act Section 66(a) (also known as “requests for extension of protection of international
`
`registrations to the United States”).   See 37 C.F.R. §§2.32(a)(3)(i)-(ii), 7.25(a)-(b); TMEP §§803.03, 803.04, 1904.02(a).  
`
`Acceptable entity types include an individual, a partnership, a corporation, a joint venture, or the foreign equivalent.  See 37 C.F.R.
`§2.32(a)(3)(i)-(ii); TMEP §§803.03 et seq.
`
`If applicant’s entity type is an individual, applicant must indicate his or her national citizenship for the record.   See 37 C.F.R. §2.32(a)(3)(i);
`TMEP §803.04.  If applicant’s entity type is a corporation, association, partnership, joint venture, or the foreign equivalent, applicant must set
`forth the foreign country under whose laws applicant is organized or incorporated.  37 C.F.R. §2.32(a)(3)(ii); TMEP §§803.03(b)-(c), 803.04. 
`For an association, applicant must also specify whether the association is incorporated or unincorporated, unless the foreign country and the
`designation or description “association/associazione” appear in Appendix D of the Trademark Manual of Examining Procedure (TMEP).  TMEP
`§803.03(c).
`
`If applicant is organized under the laws of a foreign province or geographical region, applicant should specify both the foreign province or
`geographical region and the foreign country in which the province or region is located.  See TMEP §803.04.  To provide this information online
`via the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) response form, applicant must (1) locate the “Entity Type” heading and select “Other;
`” (2) locate the “Specify Entity Type” heading and select “Other” under the Foreign Entity option, and enter in the free-text field below both
`applicant’s entity type and the foreign province or geographical region of its organization (e.g., partnership of Victoria); and (3) locate the “State
`or Country Where Legally Organized” heading and select the appropriate foreign country (e.g., Australia) under the Non-U.S. Entity option.   See
`id.
`
`IDENTIFICATION OF GOODS & SERVICES
`
`The identification of goods and services contains wording that is overly-broad and indefinite and must be amended.  TMEP §1402.03(a); see 37
`C.F.R. §2.32(a)(6).  The specific issues are set forth below.
`
`Class 9
`
`The wording is overly-broad and indefinite, and must be amended.  Specifically, applicant must clarify the nature and type of goods further, such
`as that the software is a downloadable or recorded computer software platform for electronic commerce services.  The suggested amendments are
`emphasized below.
`










`

`

`Class 36
`
`The wording throughout the identification of services is indefinite, and must be amended.  Specifically, applicant must further clarify the type,
`nature, and function of the services.  For example, the wording “financial brokerage services” could be amended to “financial brokerage
`services for cryptocurrency trading” in order to further clarify the function of the brokerage services.   The suggested amendments are
`emphasized below.
`
`The applicant may adopt the following, if accurate:
`
`Class 9:          
`
`Computer software platforms, [specify, e.g., recorded, downloadable], for accessing secure electronic platform for providing
`electronic commerce services and facilitating financial affairs, in particular trading and arranging of virtual and digital currency
`
`Class 36:        
`
`Financial affairs, in particular providing and facilitating trading and arranging of virtual and digital currency for use by members
`of an on-line community via a global computer network; monetary affairs, namely, [specify services, e.g., financial information,
`management and analysis services]; financial brokerage services for cryptocurrency trading
`
`Applicant may amend the identification to clarify or limit the goods and services, but not to broaden or expand the goods and services beyond
`those in the original application or as acceptably amended.  See 37 C.F.R. §2.71(a); TMEP §1402.06.  Generally, any deleted goods and services
`may not later be reinserted.  See TMEP §1402.07(e).  Additionally, for applications filed under Trademark Act Section 66(a), the scope of the
`identification for purposes of permissible amendments is limited by the international class assigned by the International Bureau of the World
`Intellectual Property Organization (International Bureau); and the classification of goods and services may not be changed from that assigned by
`the International Bureau.  37 C.F.R. §2.85(d); TMEP §§1401.03(d), 1904.02(b).  Further, in a multiple-class Section 66(a) application, classes
`may not be added or goods and services transferred from one existing class to another.  37 C.F.R. §2.85(d); TMEP §1401.03(d).
`
`For assistance with identifying and classifying goods and services in trademark applications, please see the USPTO’s online searchable U.S.
`Acceptable Identification of Goods and Services Manual.  See TMEP §1402.04.
