It was my first trademark trial and I didn't cite any applicable law such as the lanham act. I wrote up the petition outlining how the mark was purely descriptive and focused my petition on that. I didn't cite the Lanham act, any case law, 15 USC § 1052. I have heard from colleagues the ttab was so focused on trademark matters it would be enough to just state the mark is descriptive, was an oversight of the EA, and provide evidence to support. Should I amend or is it fine. Upon a cursory reading of other cases, I found many others who didn't include any references. I guess my question is, will the ttab assume it is a violation of 15 USC § 1052 when they see my petition for cancellation and my outlining of how the mark is descriptive in its class?
