DESCRIPTION

Detailed, practical analysis of the full range of federal and state trademark infringement remedies

Trademark Infringement Remedies, Second Edition provides owners and their counsel with the information they need to effectively defend and protect their brands to maintain a trademark’s value. The treatise covers all aspects of trademark rights, liabilities, and remedies in both traditional and emerging forms of trademark use and abuse. It addresses every aspect of civil infringement remedies available today in federal and state courts. The Second Edition discusses necessary elements in establishing liability for trademark and unfair competition; principles for equitable relief and the impact of bad faith on a practitioner’s case; issuance of preliminary and permanent injunctions; wrongful seizure of another’s goods occurring in the area of “extraordinary” relief; attorneys’ fees; availability of special enforcement remedies; relief and remedies under state law for infringement and unfair competition; and special relief available in counterfeiting cases.

  • The Fourth Circuit in Belmora LLC v. Bayer Consumer Care AG held after Lexmark that some of the federal rights granted by the Lanham Act are not limited to those who use a mark in United States commerce
