Mondaq, 13 Nov 2015: “Namer v. Broadcasting Board of Governors, No. 14-31353 (5th Cir., Oct. 26, 2015) Costa, J. Affirming summary judgment in favor of the Board on its claim of trademark infringement for Namer’s use of ‘Voice of America,’ and an injunction preventing Namer from further infringing the Board’s ‘Voice of America’ mark.” See also the opinion (pdf). KIM: Involved Namer’s use of www.voiceofamerica.com, although I saw thevoiceofamerica.com in one account. See previous post about another legal challenge involving “Voice of America,” but not “our” VOA.
