    Abstract: In 1998, the international lingerie company that uses the trade name “Victoria’s Secret” sued a retail outlet that sold sex-related products and operated under a similar name.

When the case returned to the district court, it applied the act and found a likelihood of dilution by tarnishment. The defendants appealed. This article discusses the results and the current status of the law.
