When Examiners Reopen Prosecution …

by Dennis Crouch Gilbert P. Hyatt v. Andrei Iancu (Supreme Court 2019) The following is a fairly typical pattern within the USPTO: After final rejection, applicant files a PTAB appeal notice and brief; Rather than pursue its side of the appeal, the Examiner withdraws the pending rejections — and then re-opens prosecution with a new set of rejections.

One Way I’ve Dealt With Hotel Upgrade Shenanigans in the Past – But It’s Risky

Here's what I've done in a similar situation. I once checked in at the Park Hyatt Sydney early in the morning after a long transpacific flight. They told me they did not have any standard rooms available (I had redeemed points) but they did have an Opera View King available and if I wanted that room it would be an extra AU$100 per night for my 5 night stay. (Since they were 'full' they wouldn't offer any complimentary upgrades.) Unquestionably this is a room type eligible for elite upgrade. ...

New Ways to Earn Hotel Loyalty Points Without Being Loyal

While everyone was watching the giant Marriott/Starwood merger play out to become Bonvoy Rewards, there was a story with wider appeal developing that was not getting as much play.

To earn IHG points, you stayed at a Crowne Plaza or Intercontinental. Then the companies bought out brands and started new ones until we...
