Pillsbury partner writes 29th supplement to ‘Likelihood of Confusion in Trademark Law’

The Practising Law Institute has released the 29th semi-annual supplement to Likelihood of Confusion in Trademark Law by Richard Kirkpatrick, intellectual property partner at Pillsbury.

The update includes newsletter-style commentary on major new cases such as the ‘Own Your Power’ dispute that landed Oprah Winfrey on the wrong side of the US Appeals Court for the Second Circuit.

The new edition includes an expansion of the appendix, ‘Colour Illustrations of Trademark and Trade Dress Infringement Cases’.

Doubled in size, the appendix provides key examples of the packaging, logos and designs that led to the outcome in the particular case. The book’s extensive footnotes, citing approximately 2,000 cases, refer to these colour illustrations as well.
