EMECO NAVY CHAIR Trade Dress, Design Patent Suit

I speak about the EMECO NAVY CHAIR a little bit in my LAW OF SHAPES TO COME talk because it’s one of those controversial shape trademarks – chairs where the original manufacturer tends to sue on trademark a bit (prior blog post here), and, let’s face it, you see them around. I took the photo above two weeks ago in a restaurant in Westhampton, NY. I examined the chair, didn’t see a manufacturer’s mark, then went back to my margarita. Word mark and design patent infringement is alleged as well as trade dress.
