U.S. District Judge Colm Connolly of the District of Delaware mandated that Hershey Creamery Co. must remove all of a certain blender produced by Hamilton Beach Brands Inc. from the U.S. Market. The mandate followed f’real foods‘ victory in a patent suit against the two companies over three patents involving self-cleaning blender, according to Monterey County Now. F’real, represented in Delaware by Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell in the case, sells frozen beverages that are blended in-store using the technology covered by the patents.
An attorney with Munger, Tolles & Olson defended Disney in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit against plaintiffs who claim Disney’s first “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie is similar enough to a screenplay they had created that it infringes on copyright. According to Bloomberg Law, the plaintiffs had submitted a screenplay about pirates, which Disney rejected, three years before the franchise’s first movie debuted. The case was originally dismissed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, but the Ninth Circuit revived it because of concerns that the district court did not consider the arrangement of the unprotectable elements it filtered when considering whether infringement was possible.
