While we are a Virginia-based law firm, we often work on cases involving copyright infringement, trademark infringement and publicity rights infringement against large companies across the United States.
This firm-feature is to share a victory for a Connors and Brenke client who, as a solopreneur, was unsure what to do when approached by a major greeting card company for sale of her trademarks (logo and business name).
Since this case is subject to a confidentiality agreement we are limited on what we can share.
Issue: Industry-leading greeting card company seeking to acquire client’s trademarks
Opposing party: Confidential
Subject matter: Trademark- branding intellectual property such as logo and business name
Claim: No claim. Amicable offer and sale of trademarks.
Court of jurisdiction: Not needed. All settled in house.
Resolution: Successful settlement for undisclosed amount in favor of Connors & Brenke client. Trademarks successfully assigned to company with a license for client to continue use of marks under her business.
