The final oral hearing over the trademark dispute will occur this Friday, 13th November at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. The Trademark Trial & Appeal Board, a part of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, will preside over the event hosted by the Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association. Tickets are being sold to the hearing at $95 a pop, which includes a “continental breakfast and lunch.” (Cheers, NeoGAF.)
