What is the Lanham Act?
The Lanham Act is a federal trademark law passed by President Harry S. Truman in July 1946. It regulates and regulates the use of trademarks and service marks and defines trademark prohibitions and penalties. The ever-evolving nature of IT and the digital world has made enforcement of the Lanham Act increasingly challenging. The Lanham Act is also available as a Trademark Law famous.
Internet growth has exacerbated the uncertainties and conflicts associated with U.S. trademark law. The problem of domain names and trademarks has been particularly controversial. In July 2011, Facebook filed a US district court lawsuit against CybersquattingDomains, including Facebook, Inc. v Cyber2Media, Inc., which claims trademark infringement under the Lanham Act. In this and similar cases, defendants from around the world surrendered dozens of domains. In February 2011, the Central District of California in Binder v. Disability Group Inc. has determined that purchasing a competitor's trademark through Google AdWords is trademark infringement under the Lanham Act with respect to commercial use.
