Amicus Brief

Starbucks Corp. v. Wolfe’s Borough Coffee, Inc.

Published: September 26, 2008


U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit

Our Position

For a finding of likelihood of dilution, the U.S. Trademark Dilution Revision Act does not require that the marks be very or substantially similar and does not require that the defendant have a bad faith intent to associate its mark with the plaintiff’s mark.


The court agreed with INTA’s position on both counts.
