Fall 2015 (snippets)
Trademarks are valuable tools for businesses since they allow a trademark holder to identify and distinguish its goods from those manufactured or sold by others. However, there are many issues to be aware of when seeking trademark protection.
Fall 2015 (snippets)
Under the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) Act, advertising must be truthful and non-deceptive, advertisers must have evidence to back up their claims, and advertisements cannot be unfair. An advertisement is deceptive if it misleads reasonable consumers and is material to a consumer’s decision to purchase a product. An advertisement is unfair if it causes substantial unavoidable injury that is not outweighed by its benefit to consumers.
Fall 2015 (snippets)
This is the perfect time and environment in which to take a close look at your trademark portfolio. It is the time to be thankful for your brand’s position in the market and the investments you have made into searching, registering, maintaining, and enforcing your trademarks. But it is also the time to set goals and develop plans to make better use of your trademark portfolios.
Fall 2015 (snippets)
According to a recent court ruling, Costco sold counterfeit diamond engagement rings bearing the Tiffany name and confused relevant consumers by using the word “Tiffany” in display case signage. The court rejected Costco’s fair use defense and assertion that Tiffany’s trademarks were invalid because they sought to prevent others from using the word “Tiffany” as a generic description of a type of ring setting. Under the ruling, Tiffany can now take Costco before a jury to seek damages, including recovery of Costco’s profits from the sale of the diamond rings and punitive damages.
Summer 2015 (snippets)
In an effort to simplify production issues for our clients – and to ensure that they themselves are in compliance with the EU and Swiss Privacy Laws on protection of personal information – MBHB has obtained certification under the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework. This certification process allows clients peace of mind when transferring documents and other materials that may contain personal data from the EU and/or Switzerland to the United States.
Summer 2015 (snippets)
The Supreme Court Brulotte v. Thys Co. decision stands for the rule that a patentee cannot receive royalties for activities falling within the scope of the patent claims once the patent has expired. Roundly criticized on economics grounds since it was handed down, the Supreme Court refused to walk back the Brulotte rule in a case decided at the end of the past term, Kimble v. Marvel Entertainment, LLC.
