February and March 2012 IP Cases Filed in US District Court of RI

There was 1 new intellectual property (patent, trademark and copyright) case filing in February and March 2012 at the U.S. District Court for Rhode Island. This is the first IP case filing this year, which is a 75% decrease over the IP case filings for the first three months of 2011.

The new filing in March is a trademark case.  This case will be highlighted in an upcoming blog post.

So far there have been no new patent or copyright cases filed in 2012 in Rhode Island

These numbers only include cases that have been designated in the court's database as a patent, trademark or copyright case. There are other cases pending where the complaint may include trademark or other intellectual property claims, or where intellectual property counterclaims may have been asserted. But unless the case is designated as such in the court's database, we are not counting it here
