Slep-Tone Entertainment Corp. and its successor in interest, Phoenix Entertainment Partners LLC (collectively, “Slep-Tone”), failed to plausibly allege consumer confusion in its trademark infringement and unfair competition claims against an Illinois pub and its owner, who allegedly made unauthorized copies of Slep-Tone’s karaoke files and passed them off as genuine Slep-Tone tracks, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago has ruled. The court affirmed a district court’s dismissal of Slep-Tone’s claims (Phoenix Entertainment Partners, LLC v. Rumsey, July 21, 2016, Rovner, I.).
