Seattle Trademark Lawyer: “Trademark Owner Has Standing To Sue Desipte Non-Competing Goods“:
On Nov. 12, the Ninth Circuit handed down a reminder that a trademark registrant has standing to sue for infringement even when the parties’ goods do not compete.
In doing so, it vacated the Central District of California’s summary judgment dismissal of plaintiff’s trademark claims in Halicki Films, LLC v. Sanderson Sales and Marketing concerning trademark rights stemming from the motion picture Gone in 60 Seconds.
