Best Vacuum, Inc. v. Ian Design, Inc.

Case Conclusion Date: 11.21.2006

Practice Area: Trademark Infringement

Outcome: Motion for Summary Judgment Granted

Description: We successfully obtained summary judgment in favor of our defendant-client who had been sued for alleged trademark infringement by Best Vacuum, Inc. of Illinois. Best Vacuum, Inc. contended that Ian Design, Inc.'s use of the domains "bestvacuumcleaner.com" and "bestchoicevacuums.com" infringed its alleged mark "best vacuum." Ian Design, Inc. opposed such allegations. On behalf of Ian Design, Inc., we also successfully defeated Best Vacuum's motion for preliminary injunction. In response to the Plaintiff filing its motion for summary judgment, we filed a cross motion for summary judgment. The trial court held that "best vacuum" was not a protectable mark.
