Main Volume Information
Get clear guidance on the complex laws governing trademark dilution protection
Trademark Dilution: Federal, State, and International Law, Second Edition helps sort through the controversy and confusion surrounding the Trademark Dilution Revision Act (TDRA) of 2006, the ways in which the Act makes clear that the likelihood of dilution is the standard for analyzing federal dilution claims, and the complications that may arise under state law.
The Second Edition has been revamped and decentralized, resulting in several newly separated chapters to make it easier to find relevant features. It has eight chapters on federal dilution law, covering all topics and featuring discussions and citations of a larger number of cases than ever before. A revised state dilution law section with new chapters devoted to defenses and remedies is included, as well as updated coverage of newly adopted state laws-particularly those influenced by the most recent Model State Trademark Bill. The international chapter has been revised to include coverage of many more countries, while retaining the comprehensive coverage of the European Union, Canada, and Japan. This treatise also updates developments in state dilution laws where several states have adopted the new (2007) version of the Model State Trademark Bill.
The Second Edition analyzes several major new cases, including:
Trademark Dilution: Federal, State, and International Law, Second Edition analyzes dilution issues before the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board (TTAB), providing discussions of non-precedential cases which provide useful insights into the TTAB’s thought processes. The book also discusses continuing development and use of the multifactor test for dilution and analyzes lower court applications of the TDRA. Knowing how courts are using this test is critical to advising clients.
