Unfair Competition And The Lanham Act Section 43(a)

Our Texas IP attorneys have engaged in substantial litigation, and have provided substantial prelitigation preventive and enforcement advice, with respect to Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act.

Booth Albanesi Schroeder, PLLC, has prosecuted and defended numerous major actions under Section 43(a) concerning false advertising involving:

  • Consumer products
  • Drugs
  • Food
  • Cosmetics
  • Other products.

In the course of these cases, the firm's attorneys have acquired significant experience in analysis of substantive issues, such as clinical test methodology, as well as the use of survey research with respect to the issue of implied claims. In addition, our litigators have handled cases under Section 43(a) concerning false designation of origin, and counterfeiting and false advertising, and have worked with survey experts concerning the issues of likelihood of confusion and secondary meaning.

Proceedings Before The International Trade Commission

Department members have litigated disputes on behalf of clients under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, which enables U.S. industries to obtain relief from unfair acts in importation. These unfair acts can involve:

  • Patent, trademark and copyright infringement
  • Misappropriation or violation of trade secrets
  • Violation of antitrust laws
  • Unfair competition claims

Section 337 proceedings before the International Trade Commission are unusual in that they ordinarily are completed within one year and hence require litigation expertise and a full-scale commitment of litigation resources.

We use this knowledge to counsel clients in advance of litigation on how to prosecute, as well as defend, unfair competition claims. The firm has creatively used the breadth of the common law unfair competition cause of action to develop claims on behalf of plaintiffs and in counterclaims on behalf of defendants.

State Statutory Unfair Competition, False Advertising And Other Related Matters

The firm has litigation experience that has resulted in a deep understanding of unfair competition laws in various states other than Texas. Our attorneys use this expertise to counsel clients and to prosecute and defend lawsuits brought under these statutes.
