The Northern District had 72 trademark cases filed during the first half of 2008.  That is well on the way to meeting or exceeding 2007’s total of 138 cases — click here to read about the 2007 case filings.  So, it looks like, as with patents, the Northern District continues to have an active trademark infringement docket.  A difficult economy is not slowing the Northern District’s IP cases.

Thanks to Mike Atkins at the Seattle Trademark Lawyer for the idea of a mid-year status report.  Expect a similar copyright mid-year report shortly.
