This lawsuit involves alleged infringement of the PORTLAND HOME SHOW and PORTLAND HOME & GARDEN SHOW trademarks.
According to the Complaint, Defendant’s business model is “to travel to a location with an established and successful home show and produce a similarly named show several weeks in advance of the established show.”
The dispute originated way back in November 1999, so there’s history between the parties.
