1215.09    Likelihood of Confusion

When analyzing whether a domain name mark is likely to cause confusion with another pending or registered mark, the examining attorney must consider the marks as a whole, but generally should accord little weight to a non-source-identifying gTLD portion of the mark. Apple Computer v., Inc., 90 USPQ2d 1393 (TTAB 2007). See TMEP §1207.01(b)(iii).
