Nabisco v. Warner-Lambert Co.

Nabisco v. Warner-Lambert Co.

2d Cir. (2000)

Nabisco sued our client Warner-Lambert alleging that Warner-Lambert’s “Dentyne Ice” chewing gum trademark infringed Nabisco’s trademark on its “Ice Breakers®” chewing gum. The district court found as a matter of law that there was no likelihood of confusion between the two trademarks and granted summary judgment in favor of Warner-Lambert. On June 5, 2000 the Second Circuit affirmed this decision, holding that the use of the two marks “is so dissimilar as to require judgment for Warner-Lambert.”
