Dan Harkins Speaks About Packaging Dispute in Bloomberg Law

October 21, 2020

Dan Harkins, San Antonio-based Member and Director of Dykema’s Intellectual Property Department, was quoted in the Bloomberg Law article, “Gorilla Glue Faces Packaging Trial After 11th Cir. Revival.”

In the article, Harkins addressed the Eleventh Circuit’s decision to overturn the lower court’s ruling regarding a packaging dispute between J-B Weld Co. and Gorilla Glue Co., saying that “it’s a weak trade dress.” He also said Gorilla may win at trial but could have avoided litigation by simply not using packaging similar to that of J-B Weld.
