My 'take' is pretty much the same as last time, except that I'm surprised that the Trademark Board hasn't kicked both parties' butts to make them move forward or quit.

WCVC must feel it can make use of the delays initiated by the Plaintiff (i.e., the company that initiated the trademark case), while at the same time figuring it will win on the merits (see its one filed 'answer') if the case gets beyond its current on-going 'negotiations' suspensions.

The Plaintiff must a) be disappointed that WCVC didn't just buckle-under when the case was first filed (a not uncommon outcome against small companies that don't have the resources for a protracted fight), and b) be hoping to get some kind of capitulation from WCVC. At this point, it's been the Plaintiff dragging the case out with repeated motions for suspension to negotiate.

To get truly meaningful commentary, however, you'd have to ask a real trademark lawyer with litigation experience.
