SDNY Maternal Beauty Products Trademark Case Heard by Court of Int'l Trade Judge Reif

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 10 –  A trademark dispute about beauty products for mothers has been referred to a judge of the U.S. Court International Trade, from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

On September 13, Court of International Trade Judge Timothy M. Reif held a proceeding in a case initially assigned to SDNY Judge Vernon S. Broderick.   Hope Organics is suing Preggo Leggings for using a MTHR mark, which it says copies its MUTHA trademark.

 There ensued an oral argument ranging from the success of Peleton during the pandemic to res ipsa locutor and the changed geograph of trademark and confusion when packages can be ordered in one day from anywhere. 

 The lack of complaints about confusing on social media was noted by Judge Reif. But Hope Organics' lawyer asked, Who among us has time to comment on social media? Who indeed.

The case is Hope Organics LLC v. Preggo Leggings LLC, 21-cv-2416 (Rief)
