Trademark Bullying Webcast: Where is the Line and When is it Crossed?
Listen as Winthrop & Weinstine attorney Stephen R. Baird
discusses trademark enforcement tactics in a variety of environments and from a variety of perspectives to help advance your understanding of trademark bullying, and how to avoid this unfortunate label.
Trademark law requires trademark owners to vigilantly protect their trademark rights from encroachment by both willful and innocent infringers. But some trademark litigation tactics have been called into question by the public, by the media, and just a few years ago, by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in an official report to Congress. As a result of this increased scrutiny, trademark counsel should develop a keen understanding of which trademark enforcement efforts cross the line between useful, necessary policing and trademark bullying. Doing so will help trademark counsel protect and serve their clients in trademark matters while lowering the risk that their clients will be swept up in a public shaming campaign.
