Charlie Meyer quoted in The Indiana Lawyer, “Say what?: Trademark case tests ‘scandalous,’ ‘immoral’ standards”

April 25, 2019

Charlie Meyer was quoted in The Indiana Lawyer article, “Say What?: Trademark Case Tests ‘Scandalous,’ ‘Immoral’ Standards.”

What’s more, the scandalous and immoral clause seemingly gives the government permission to treat some businesses differently than others based on the trademark they choose to use, said Charlie Meyer, a partner at Indianapolis IP firm Woodard, Emhardt, Henry, Reeves & Wagner, LLP. But such unequal treatment would seem to be unconstitutional, Meyer said.

“Is it the government’s job to treat people differently on this basis?” Meyer said, pointing to a question he thinks is an important issue for the justices to resolve. Further, if Tam stands for the proposition that the government cannot determine what is “disparaging,” then Meyer questioned why the government would still be allowed to decide what is scandalous or immoral.

Charlie Meyer Quoted In Indiana Lawyer: “Chinese tariffs shed light on theft of American IP”

May 9, 2018

The brewing trade war between the United States and China has shone a renewed spotlight on a longstanding source of contention between the two economies: intellectual property theft.

President Donald Trump announced on March 22 the U.S. would impose tariffs on Chinese imports in response to Chinese theft of American IP, and since then the two nations have engaged in a series of retaliatory economic sanctions. While trade experts say the back-and-forth could give rise to a global trade war, IP law experts say the debate underscores the need for stronger intellectual property protections in America and abroad.

Most IP attorneys say across the country, inventors and innovators can take only a reactive, rather than proactive, approach to protecting their work. But experts also say Indiana has a unique approach to IP law that sets the state apart as a model for strong intellectual property defense.

Specifically looking to the patent side of IP law, it’s also common for overseas markets to produce goods covered by American patents, then import them back into the states for a profit, said Charlie Meyer of the IP firm Woodard, Emhardt, Moriarty, McNett & Henry LLP. Alternatively, Chinese manufacturers of American goods often take American molds and use them to create identical, but knockoff, goods, Meyer said.

MAP Pricing Policies

December 10, 2012

Manufacturers of goods often seek to control how their goods are advertised or otherwise presented to the public.  One method of doing so is by creating a “Minimum Advertised Price” or “Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price.”  However, doing so may present price fixing or anti-trust concerns.  Our Prosecution Practice Group Meeting this week discussed these potential risks and the rewards of doing so and what considerations should be taken into account when establishing such policies.
