We at DuetsBlog like nothing more than to be trend-spotters and, dare I say it, predictors of things to come.  Okay, maybe I’m just talking about me.

But I think it’s fair to say that a lot of us saw the concern about the treatment of so-called “green” trademarks at the United States Patent and Trademark Office coming. A recent article on TriplePundit revealed that the PTO has developed and started enforcing “a new prosecution policy that requires federal applications for marks that include the word ‘green’ for selected products or services to contain a statement of ‘environmental friendliness’ in the description of goods or services.”

We’ve blogged about this trend here and here.  Don’t say we didn’t we didn’t warn you.
