Holy Non-Infringement, Batman!

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has an interesting article discussing last week’s 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling dismissing Fortres Grand’s trademark infringement lawsuit against Warner Bros. on the grounds that a fictional product (the “Clean Slate” software program from the movie The Dark Knight Rises) cannot infringe the trademark of a real product (Fortres Grand’s “Clean Slate” software program).  Read the full article here, and the Court’s opinion here.
