Freecycle Network v. Oey – Defendant stated that Freecycle Network’s FREECYCLE mark was generic. District Court issues an injunction that such claims were a violation of the Lanham Act without doing much of an analysis of any particular provision of the Lanham Act. People like me participated as amici pointing out various problems with the District Court decision. 9th Circuit overrules.
