Supreme Court Vacates and Remands 10th Circuit's Decision in Abitron Austria GmbH v. Hetronic International, Inc.
June 29, 2023On June 29, 2023, the Supreme Court vacated and remanded the 10th Circuit's decision in Abitron v. Hetronic. The Court held that the Lanham Act’s causes of action for trademark infringement do not rebut a canon of statutory construction—the presumption against extraterritoriality. Accordingly, any triggering conduct for Lanham Act liability must be domestic, and the Court held that the relevant triggering conduct is “infringing ‘use in commerce.’” The decision is in part inconsistent with the amicus brief filed by AIPLA on December 26, 2022.
