Pamela Chestek Comments on "METAL GEAR" WYHO Case

Pamela Chestek, ip ownership maven, comments here on the ownership issue in the recent METAL GEAR case. [TTABlogged here].

So DAT thought up the mark, spec'd the goods, and arranging for manufacturing with several companies - in other words, did what every brand name company who manufactures offshore does. The opposer then bought unauthorized goods and had the nerve to claim that the cheating manufacturer owned the mark. I should hope a fraud claim wouldn't fly.

You said it, Pam!

I think "Galaxy" should be "DAT" in Ms. Chestek's quote - DAT was the applicant who contracted with the foreign manufacturer and Galaxy was the opposer.
