Ninth Circuit Provides Guidance for Likelihood of Irreparable Harm in Trademark and Trade Dress Cases, But Questions Still Loom for the Role of Evidence of Likelihood of Confusion

We haven't heard the last on trade dress precedent. 

On May 18, 2018, following the Ninth Circuit’s highly anticipated decision in the trademark and trade dress row between adidas and Skechers, the Los Angeles Daily Journal published an article written by attorney Brian Wheeler that examined the lessons learned from the Ninth Circuit’s adidas v. Skechers decision and the role of evidence of likelihood of confusion to support a finding of likelihood of irreparable harm sufficient to justify a preliminary injunction.  Read the full article here.

Brian, a partner in Atkinson Andelson’s Cerritos office, focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation, including trademark, trade dress, copyright, and design patent infringement, as well as trade secret misappropriation and unfair competition.  He regularly represents clients in trademark and trade dress matters.
