Abstract: E-commerce has allowed foreign corporations to reach new customers far beyond their borders. Sales to U.S. customers, though, might open up a foreign company to litigation in the United States. This article summarizes a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit shedding light on how a foreign defendant can land in federal court for alleged trademark infringement. Plixer Int’l, Inc. v. Scrutinizer GmbH, No. 18-1195, Sept. 13, 2018, 1st Cir.
