Ward v. Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Noble, Inc.

Our attorneys represented Barnes & Noble in the defense of a copyright infringement action brought by Michael Ward.  Plaintiff claimed that a B&N publishing subsidiary was infringing his New Zealand copyright and US trade dress rights by publishing a Hangman game book.  Summary judgment motion brought by B&N to dismiss the claims was granted in significant part. 

In July 2015, a trial was conducted on remaining claims.  The jury rendered a verdict in the client’s favor on all such claims.
