Patent Law, Trademark Law – Updates on patent trolls, the Winklevoss twins, Kim Kardashian, and Jeremy Lin

Here are updates on things we have covered in the past.

President Obama is aware of the problem of patent trolls, although he did not mention any particular solution to the problem.

The Winklevoss twins did not appeal the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling rejecting their attempt to cancel their settlement agreement with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg, and are now involved in a new social network and spending part of their time in Los Angeles.

Kim Kardashian and Old Navy settled their lawsuit over an Old Navy commercial with a Kim Kardashian-lookalike.

Finally, we previously covered Jeremy Lin’s efforts to trademark the catchphrase “Linsanity.”  After much back and forth between the US Patent and Trademark Office, Jeremy Lin, and the other hopeful applicants, all the Linsanity trademark applications have been either rejected or suspended for now.
