Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Lose, Sometimes You Manage to Do Both

We are reminded of the line in Carol King’s Sweet Seasons: “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes the blues just get a hold of you.” Selee, a manufacturer of foam-based filtration equipment, sued McDanel Advanced Ceramics Technology, a manufacturer of ceramic tubes and components, for infringement of its “Engineered Ceramics” trademark. We can only assume that the plaintiff or its lawyers just made a bad impression on the jury, because the jury found that McDanel had indeed infringed Selee’s trademark, but it awarded Selee $1. Ouch!
