Lefkowitz - Respondent
San Francisco, Washington DC
Members: Noura Elfarra, Sonya Patel, Matthew Tratos
Coaches: John Darin, Daniel Duan
Description of Issues:

Hollywood Hops, a Southern California organic brewery founded by former child star Dustin Diamond, appeals a lower court decision denying an injunction on trademark grounds of use of the name Hollywood & Vine by a Southern California winery. 

The issues are these:

1) Whether Hollywood Hops is distinctive enough to qualify as a trademark;

2) Whether Mr. Diaomond acquiesced to Hollywood & Vine's use of the name, thereby providing Hollywood & Vine with an affirmative defense; and whether consumers are likely to confuse (likelihood of confusion) the names of the two companies.
