    Abstract: The federal appeals court recently held that a trademark owner seeking a preliminary injunction against an alleged infringer must first show that it will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of an injunction. This holding will stand even if the owner has already established a likelihood of succeeding on its infringement claim. Although the decision reverses long-standing precedent, it wasn’t totally unexpected after recent rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court. This article examines the arguments in this case involving the name of a ’50s vocal group. Although the ruling favored the defendant, a sidebar notes that the court did reject the latter’s claim that the plaintiff had abandoned the trademark. Herb Reed Enterprises, LLC v.

    Abstract: In the recent case Monsanto Co. v. McFarling, a Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit decision has significant implications for patent infringement damage calculations. This article describes the case’s background and explains the court’s reasoning in the case, which provides plaintiffs with additional ammunition for building a reasonable royalty claim. The decision also requires plaintiffs on both sides of patent infringement cases to look beyond “established” royalty rates at other economic factors that affect the amount to which the parties would agree in a hypothetical negotiation.
