Common Law Trademark Infringement, Federal Trademark Infringement, John V. Acosta, Litigation Update, Unfair Competition
Plaintiff manufactures and sells high-end markers for illustrators and design professionals. Their markers have distinctive squarish bodies and distinctive squarish cap-ends, both protected by U.S. trademark registrations.
This lawsuit arises because the configuration of Defendant’s Heritage A-Line markers is alleged to be confusingly similar to the configuration denoted in the trademark registrations and the configuration of Plaintiffs’ COPIC line of markers.
