SCOTUS examines TM licensing post-bankruptcy

21.02.2019 | World Intellectual Property Review

Pat Dinardo was quoted in the article, “SCOTUS examines TM licensing post-bankruptcy,” which was published by World Intellectual Property Review on February 21, 2019.

The US Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in Mission Product Holdings v Tempnology, in which it will consider whether a debtor-licensor’s rejection of a trademark licence agreement in bankruptcy results in complete termination of the license agreement. Pat commented that “some members of the court seems to accept the distinction between the obligation to maintain the mark (which they all agreed could be rejected by the debtor-licensor) and the right to use it.”
