Fish’s Kristen McCallion (NY) was recently quoted in Corporate Counsel, authored by Lisa Shuchman, discussing the trademark dispute between client Full Circle United, LLC and Skee-Ball, Inc. regarding the term Skee-Ball.

“They came to us in part to get things moving,” said Kristen McCallion, a Fish partner who specializes in trademark, copyright and other IP issues. “They also were looking for a new perspective.”

“It’s not a protectable trademark because there’s no other word to describe Skee-Ball,” McCallion said. “Under trademark law, if a noun identifies a common name for something and not a source, then it’s not protected.”
