Outdoor Industry Product Manufacturers: Beware of Potential Trademark Pitfalls

Outdoor Industry Product Manufacturers: Beware of Potential Trademark Pitfalls

The outdoors and sporting goods industries are key users of the latest high-tech materials such as specialized fabrics, plastics, etc. Manufacturers in the outdoors and sporting goods industry can sometimes unexpectedly find themselves pulled into trademark infringement and counterfeiting lawsuits in America with these large outdoor and sporting goods companies, in connection with these high-tech materials.

Outdoors IP, Outside!

Outdoors IP, Outside!

For the past thirteen years, the No Ivy League has partnered with Portland Parks and Recreation to remove invasive English ivy from Portland's parks, and to educate the public about the problems associated with overgrowth of invasive, non-native species. Their mission is to restore the native habitat of natural areas with efforts in removing invasive plants, youth development programs, environmental education, and community participation.

Earlier this month, contributors to OutdoorsIP took part in a volunteer work party with the League, and really enjoyed getting off the trails a bit, pulling and mulching English ivy and making room to breathe for an estimated 4,600 square feet of gorgeous forest!

If you or your company are interested in getting outdoors and assisting with this project, the No Ivy League meets first Wednesdays and first and third Saturdays at 8:45 a.m.
