The IMPACT® blog reports a settlement in the Second Life dispute.
Author:Ron ColemanI write this blog.
The question of whether consumers are likely to be confused is the signal inquiry that determines if a trademark infringement claim is valid. This blog is about trademark law, copyright law, free speech (mostly as it relates to the Internet) and legal issues related to blogging.
As for me, I'm an AV-rated partner and commercial litigator in the IP Department of Archer & Greiner PC* with offices in New York and New Jersey (but active nationwide) and, some say, "IP maven"* with a special interest in copyright and trademark infringement claims involving the Internet, including advising clients how to avoid them.

CATEGORIES (a work in progress)
I’m high-ranked and I know it.
Is LIKELIHOOD OF CONFUSION® really all that? Rankings-wise? Is it really one of the top law blogs in the galaxy?
It is, for what that's worth.
As of right now, here are the latest rankings via:
- All legal blogs on Avvo.com
- Most popular law blogs this month on Justia (sometimes)
- All IP law blogs, by popularity, on Justia
- All copyright law blogs, by popularity on Justia (whoa!)
- Alltop's law blogs.
Then there's this kind of odd thing, plus SiNApSE's Ten Titans of the IP blog world and also something called Inspired Sites where this blog is categorized under "Naming / Branding / Language" rather than law, which is, as the young folk say, "kind of cool."
Of course, it's easy to game almost any ranking system -- not that I've tried to... as such. These just are what they are.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of Archer & Greiner, P.C.
THIS BLOG IS ONLY A BLOG, NOT LEGAL ADVICE. IT IS IN PART AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR LEGAL SERVICES BY ME, RONALD D. COLEMAN, BUT I AM NOT YOUR LAWYER. YOU ARE NOT MY CLIENT. JUST WALK BESIDE ME AND BE MY FRIEND.
*The term maven is used to mean "wise guy" here and is not meant to suggest that I am certified or otherwise authorized under bar rules to claim "expertise" in any field of legal practice. But try me. [email protected]
