It lights up, too!
Every so often I browse The Grommet, frankly just to lift my spirits and to see the cool things people make. It’s like Etsy, but for techies and foodies, and much more finely curated. Here is something that really caught my eye. It’s a KeySmart, and I like it because there is something just so empowering about making my noisy, jangly keys, fit into a sheath the size of a pack of gum. It’s like a Swiss Army Knife, sleek, elegant, but just for keys. And hey, it’s made right here in Chicago! Have a look-see for yourself:

On appeal from the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board’s decision canceling the mark in June 2014, the Redskins win the right to have their case heard in federal district court (E.D. Va, November 25, 2014). The Native American defendants in the federal court case (petitioners in the TTAB cancellation case) moved to dismiss the complaint because, among other reasons, they had no commercial stake in the matter and therefore, were not proper parties. If they are not proper parties to the complaint, the court should lack subject matter jurisdiction to hear the case. Judge Lee denied defendants’ motion to dismiss, because if defendants had enough stake in the matter to cancel the trademark at the TTAB, they have a stake in federal court as well.
