IP Trial Lawyer Darin Klemchuk Leads ABA Panel

Klemchuk Kubasta Partner Moderates Discussion on High Profile Rosetta Stone v. Google Case

DALLAS – Nov. 8, 2012 – Darin M. Klemchuk, co-founder and senior partner of Klemchuk Kubasta LLP (KK LLP), a leading full-service intellectual property (IP) law firm, moderated a panel discussion on the high-profile Rosetta Stone v. Google Case during the American Bar Association (ABA) IP Roundtable held in Dallas on October 17.

In a presentation titled, “Did Rosetta Stone v. Google change the trademark infringement landscape for Keyword Advertising?," Klemchuk and his co-moderator, Allen Lineberry of Siemens Product Lifecycle Management Software, led a panel discussion that explored possible long-term implications of this landmark case.

“Just because the case has settled doesn’t mean that the underlying issues were invalid,” noted Klemchuk. “The Rosetta Stone v. Google Case is a bellwether for the IP industry, and will change the face of e-commerce marketing on the Internet. Whether it is Google’s use of third-party trademarks in its Adwords programs or another search engine utilizing similar marketing programs, trademark infringement and unfair competition liability issues will remain a concern for any company engaged in online marketing.”

He has successfully handled more than 200 IP disputes including more than 20 patent infringement cases. Utilizing trademark, copyright registrations, employment and non-compete agreements, his practice also includes assisting companies seeking to increase their market share, while protecting their competitive advance through the identification and protection of valuable branding, technological innovation, software and other property.
