AbstractThe Lanham Act tells us that a certification mark is a symbol used by a person other than the symbol's owner to certify one or more characteristics of that person's goods or services. Although the Act offers to register certification marks in the same way as other marks, and provides them with the same protection as other marks, certification marks are viewed as very distinct in trademark law.
IDAHO POTATOES, one such certification mark, is the subject of this memo.
