SCT may review territoriality issue
The United States Supreme Court has a new opportunity to look at whether a U.S. trademark owner can recover damages for infringing uses of the owner’s mark occurring outside the United States. … The district court jury returned a verdict to the tune of $90 million, finding that Abitron had willfully infringed the Hetronic mark— even though 97% of the infringing sales were made in Europe. The district court entered a final judgment in line with the jury’s verdict as well as a worldwide permanent injunction.
