McCabe, Jr. was quoted in World Trademark Review in its article entitled “Dispute Between USPTO and Controversial Trademark Filer Ends” (by Trevor Little).  The World Trademark Review article quotes Mr. McCabe’s IPethics & INsights law blog article (here), which broke the story regarding The Trademark Company‘s Matthew H. Swyers and the conclusion of his 3-year ethics legal battle against the USPTO’s Office of Enrollment and Discipline.  As noted in the IPethics article, the disciplinary proceeding against Mr. Swyers ended when he agreed to be excluded from practicing in trademark and other non-patent matters before the USPTO.
