False Designation of Origin, Federal Trademark Dilution, Federal Trademark Infringement, Federal Unfair Competition, Paul Papak
Plaintiff Pacific Fence & Wire Company, an Oregon corporation based in Clackamas, Oregon, has used its PACIFIC trademark in connection with fences, fencing materials, and fencing services since as early as 1921.
Plaintiff brings this action because the Defendants are allegedly willfully infringing Plaintiff’s PACIFIC trademark by using the trademark PACIFIC NW FENCE & DECK to advertise and provide fencing services and by using the domain name pacificnwfenceanddeck.com.
Defendants apparently agreed to discontinue use of their trademark in 2016, temporarily stopped use in 2017-2018, but have since revived their use of the allegedly infringing trademark, hence this lawsuit.
