Garan Services Corp. filed an intent to use application to register MATCH STUDIO in plain lettering for “clothing, namely tops and bottoms.” It disclaimed the exclusive right to use the word “STUDIO” apart from the mark as a whole. The Examining Attorney refused registration on the ground that there would be a likelihood of confusion with the existing registered mark MATCH for “clothing . . .woven bottoms and tops . . . .” Garan appealed to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).
