    Amending the Lanham Act is the wrong approach for these type of changes. To be most effective and, at the same time, the least disruptive to trademark law, the provisions of this bill belong perhaps in Title 18 of the U.S. Code (the criminal law) or even in another area of Title 15 that is not related to the Lanham Act. Section 4 of the bill amends Section 2 of the Lanham Act (15 U.S.C. ) to eliminate an anomaly relating to concurrent use applications, to make conforming amendments and to revise the year timetable for establishing proof of secondary meaning.

      The Lanham Act provides for individuals or companies to dispute the conclusions of the Unites States Patent and Trademark Office by making a formal trademark appeal.
