Rotoworks International Ltd., a New Zealand farm implement manufacturer, received a preliminary injunction Monday in a trademark infringement case involving a bait-and-switch scheme by a northwest Arkansas group.
In the lawsuit filed by the Henry Law Firm of Fayetteville, Rotoworks claimed the defendants — Grassworks USA LLC, Grassworks!!! LLC, Robert D. “Bobby” Umberson and Linda K. Reed — infringed on the federally registered Rotowiper trademark and violated several trademark laws by manufacturing copies of Rotoworks’ herbicide applicators, known generically as “weed wipers.”
