Cert Petition Filed in Ty v. Perryman (BARGAINBEANIES.COM)


Goldstein Howe, source of the SCOTUS Blog, has filed a petition for cert on behalf of Ty Inc. (the Beanie Baby people), in Ty v. Perryman (the BARGAINBEANIES.COM case discussed previously here).  The question presented is:

Whether every third-party reseller of goods bearing famous trademarks has the right, as a matter of law, to incorporate the famous marks into the reseller’s business name and Internet domain name, or whether such conduct instead constitutes dilution of the famous trademarks under the Federal Trademark Dilution Act.

Text of the cert petition here.
