Microsoft Corp. v. GeoTag, Inc.

Romag Fasteners, Inc. v. Fossil, Inc.

Romag Fasteners, Inc. (“Romag”) owns U.S. Patent No. 5,777,126 (“the ’126 patent”) on magnetic snap fasteners, which Romag sells under its registered trademark, ROMAG. Romag sued Fossil, Inc. and Fossil Stores I, Inc. (together, “Fossil”), along with retailers of Fossil products, alleging, inter alia, patent and trademark infringement. A jury found Fossil liable for both patent and trademark infringement and made advisory awards. The district court reduced the patent damages because of Romag’s laches and held as a matter of law that Romag could not recover Fossil’s profits for trademark infringement because the jury had found that Fossil’s trademark infringement was not willful. We affirm.
