IP litigation partner Matt Rizzolo (Washington, D.C) was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article published May 9. The article examines a Federal Circuit decision that Swagway hoverboards infringed Segway Inc.’s trademarks. The decision affirms that the International Trade Commission correctly determined that Swagway creates a likelihood of confusion with Segway even without evidence of actual confusion.

Mr. Rizzolo explains that the decision is significant in that it is a first from the Federal Circuit in addressing the potential preclusive effect of trademark decisions out of the ITC.
