Dilution's (Still) Uncertain Future

Graeme B. Dinwoodie & Mark D. Janis

Dilution looked to be a potent weapon when Congress introduced it as § 43(c) of the Lanham Act in 1995. Indeed, some observers feared that it would be too potent (and in some contexts, such as cybersquatting, it successfully augmented traditional causes of action). But a series of court decisions, culminating in the Supreme Court's 2003 Moseley v. V Secret Catalogue opinion, weakened dilution protection so profoundly that what remained wasn't of much consequence.
