While conventional wisdom for many years has held the injunction against use of a trademark to be the main prize and danger of trademark litigation, the stakes in many cases have risen. Plaintiffs now frequently seek, in addition to injunctive relief, monetary awards in the form of damages, profits, and attorney fees. This Briefing will cover the general statutory and common law framework of monetary relief in trademark cases, as well as judicial applications of the laws to specific controversies.
Patricia Cotton, Richard L. Kirkpatrick and Paul E. Thomas from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP will address:
- legal criteria to merit each type of monetary award available in trademark litigation, including the impact of recent Supreme Court decisions (15 minutes);
- practical strategies to win money awards and defend against them (15 minutes);
- types of proofs accepted and rejected by courts (15 minutes); and
- risk assessment decision processes to weigh the expense of litigation against potential recoveries and losses (15 minutes).
The program is recommended for in-house counsel, law firm counselors and litigators, and all others involved in potential trademark litigation.
