Prevailing defendants in a trademark dispute over the mark MEMORY LANE were not entitled to an award of attorney fees incurred in their successful defense, the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco has held. A district court properly concluded that the case was not “exceptional” for purposes of the Lanham Act’s fee-shifting provision (Memory Lane, Inc. v. Classmates, Inc., March 25, 2016, per curiam).

A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.
