Lefkowitz - Petitioner

Nicholas Medellin, Leilani Lu, Kira Petersen

San Francisco

Issues

Petitioner owns a music store and claims trademark infringement of its mark "OFF THE CHARTS!" due to Respondent's--the popular band BTX--use of the trademark "WE'RE OFF THE CHARTS? YOU BTXHA!" As a promotional tool Petitioner used BTX themed action figures in the store. BTX claims that unauthorized uses constitutes false endorsement.

The questions presented are:

1. Did the District Court err in finding no likelihood of confusion?

2. Did the District Court correctly find that "OFF THE CHARTS!" functions as a trademark?

3. Did the District Court err in finding that Rex's use of the BTX action figures was false endorsement?
