Here is the recording of the February 6, 2013 webinar entitled “Trademark Dilution.”
How do you protect famous marks from uses which tarnish or otherwise harm them? Trademark Dilution claims help to protect famous marks from other uses which tend to harm their uniqueness. In this webinar we will discuss the concept and some cases which implement the law. Come learn from Davis McGrath LLC’s Kevin Thompson during this interactive webinar. Be prepared to ask and get answers to your own questions as well.
Kevin has over thirteen years of experience in counseling clients with regard to their trademark issues.
Topics covered include:
- Trademark Dilution
- Federal vs. State
- 15 USC 1125
- Changes in the 2006 Act
