Multidistrict Judicial Panel Rejects Copyright/Trademark Case

The litigation involves cases in California, Missouri and New York for copyright infringement and trademark infringement. Two of the defendants moved to centralize the litigation in California. The panel denied the transfer because the cases were too individualized.

This case is another example that intellectual property litigation usually involves issues that are unique between the parties. As a result, intellectual property litigation typically is not suited for multidistrict litigation or class action litigation.
