In 2010 an independent inventor, Choon Ng, invented the Rainbow Loom, a loom for making rubber band bracelets. In 2013 and 2014 the Rainbow Loom was perhaps one of the hottest toys in the world. It was a great success, but not without challenges from infringement.
Counterfeits and various types of infringements flooded the US, Europe and Asia. Ted Olds and John Siragusa of Carlson, Gaskey & Olds P.C. headed up the intelletual property law firm team charged with stopping these actions. As our March 2021 Keynote Speakers, Ted and John will explain what worked and what did not work to address this problem. Also, they will cover steps that were taken early so that Rainbow Loom had the tools to limit the counterfeits and infringements. Rainbow Loom enjoyed the success every independent inventor dreams about, and this is the story of the headaches that can come with that success, and how to minimize them. Join us to learn:
