Who owns the colors of the rainbow?

Date: Tuesday, August 18, 2020 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Color trademarks are increasingly popular. You can likely picture these colors just by reading them: Tiffany blue, Coca Cola red, T-Mobile pink. Just like any other trademark, they serve as source identifiers. But what makes color marks distinctive and protectable?

In 2017, Covington secured a landmark trademark infringement ruling for John Deereā€™s rights in its iconic green and yellow colors on agricultural equipment. This appears to be only the second color trademark case ever to go through trial, and the very first case in which a color trademark was found to be famous for purposes of a dilution claim.

Join us as we discuss color marks and who owns the colors of the rainbow.
