Arnstein & Lehr Chicago Partner Judith L. Grubner has written an article in the April issue of The Intellectual Property Strategist, titled “The COACH Mark Is Famous, But Not Famous Enough to Support a Dilution Claim.” The article discusses a decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that there was insufficient proof that the mark was a “household name” and famous enough to support a claim of dilution against a third party’s COACH-branded educational materials. Coach Services, Inc. v. Triumph Learning LLC, __ F.3d __ (Fed. Cir. 2012).
