IP @ the Supreme Court Series: Jack Daniel’s Properties, Inc. v. VIP Products LLC
- The Program on Information Justice and Intellectual property is excited to announce the next IP at the Supreme Court Series: Jack Daniel’s Properties, Inc. v. VIP Products LLC moderated by Professor Christine Haight Farley.
- AUWCL regularly invites counsel of record and counsel for selected amici to offer post-argument reflections on intellectual property (and related) cases heard by the Supreme Court. These events are held on the afternoon of oral argument before the Court.
- The issues are: (1) Whether humorous use of another’s trademark as one’s own on a commercial product is subject to the Lanham Act’s traditional likelihood-of-confusion analysis, 15 U.S.C. § 1125(a)(1), or instead receives heightened First Amendment protection from trademark-infringement claims; and (2) whether humorous use of another’s mark as one’s own on a commercial product is “noncommercial” and thus bars as a matter of law a claim of dilution by tarnishment under the Trademark Dilution Revision Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1125(c)(3)(C).
- March 22 | 5:00 - 6:30pm EDT | Hybrid | Reception to Follow
- Registration is required.
