This webinar, the second in our new webinar series "FICPI Focus 45", features Davide F. Schiavetti of Rothwell Figg Ernst & Manbeck in conversation with moderator Louis-Pierre Gravelle of IP firm Bereskin & Parr in Canada. 

Davide discusses the recent Federal Circuit decision, and a potential Supreme Court appeal, on the case between Deckers Outdoors Corp. and Australian Leather, that held that Australia Leather’s sale of its sheepskin “ugg” boots in the US infringed Deckers’ “Ugg” trademark, despite the fact that “ugg[ly boot]” is a generic term in Australia.
