The federal district court in Salt Lake City did not err in terminating Leland Sycamore’s rights under a trademark license agreement (TLA) that granted him the right to use the “Grandma Sycamore’s Home Maid Bread” and “Grandma Sycamore’s Home Maid Bread Design” trademarks (the Sycamore marks), or in the scope of a permanent injunction it awarded to EarthGrains Baking Companies, that permanently enjoined Sycamore from using the Sycamore marks nationwide, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Denver has decided. Sycamore’s Lanham Act violations of trademark infringement and unfair competition provided an independent basis for the injunction granted by the district court, and Sycamore’s arguments on appeal to the contrary were without merit (EarthGrains baking Companies, Inc. v. Sycamore, October 10, 2017, Holmes, J.).
