Plaintiff, developer of the popular online game Divergence: Online, has brought an action against a disgruntled designer for a violation of 17 U.S.C. § 512(f). In other words, Plaintiff claims that Defendant filed a fraudulent DMCA takedown notice. #Copyright   #DMCA

Pretty blatant knockoff but this case is interesting because of how long it took Plaintiff to take action...almost 3 years. Is that too long to knowingly let a counterfeit food item stay on the market? Should injunctive relief have been sought much sooner? Waiting to take action on a trademark claim can always invite a laches defense, but what should be done when there are public health and safety implications? #trademark  
Plaintiff, the Shipshewana Spice Company, has sold quality spices under the trademark "HAPPY SALT" since 1994. Defendant allegedly operates a website selling knockoff spices. The product comparison...

Plaintiff operates an online auction marketplace at the domain autobidmaster.com. Defendant, a competitor, began using the domain autobidmaser.com and autobidmater.com to redirect traffic to its own website. #oregon   #trademark   #cybersquatting

This lawsuit arises because the configuration of Defendant’s Heritage A-Line markers is alleged to be confusingly similar to the configuration denoted in the trademark registrations and the configuration of Plaintiffs’ COPIC line of markers. #productdesign   #trademark   #oregon  
Plaintiff manufactures and sells high-end markers for illustrators and design professionals. Their markers have distinctive squarish bodies and distinctive squarish cap-ends, both protected by U.S....

Here’s yet another trademark lawsuit involving a brewery. This time, however, the defendant isn’t another brewery but a DUI attorney using an allegedly confusingly similar logo. #oregon   #trademark   #beer

Defendants are alleged to have used their position as managers at Nike to steal unique and/or custom athletic footwear in order to profit from the sale of those shoes to collectors of rare athletic shoes, known in the industry as “Sneakerheads.” The defendants allegedly lied to Nike and its manufacturers by misrepresenting that the shoes would be used for promotional and marketing purposes in order to trick them into manufacturing inventory for the illicit scheme. #oregon   #trademark   #sneakerhead

Businesses, this lawsuit should serve as a warning to have your employees sign all necessary confidentiality, non-solicitiation and non-compete agreements PRIOR to sharing your valuable trade secrets. Another common avoidable mistake in this lawsuit was to allow a salesman to use his personal cell phone as his client contact number, rather than a business number. #oregon   #tradesecret   #noncompete
