IP Casebriefs #006: Discussing the Booking.com Case, Part 2
AIPLA filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in United States Patent and Trademark Office et al. v. Booking.com B.V., No. 19-46, a case addressing whether the addition by an online business of a generic top-level domain (such as “.com”) to an otherwise generic term can create a protectable trademark.
In part two of a two-part series, we hear from Craig B. Whitney, a partner in the Frankfurt Kurnit litigation group and the author of AIPLA's recent amicus brief in this case. In part 1, we heard from Rebeccah Gan, a Partner at Wenderoth, on why she disagreed with AIPLA's adopted position.
Hosted and produced by Kemahl Franklyn.
