Cases Over Domain Names, Sneaker Cases Put Abitron to the Test

Vans also cited the Supreme Court decision in a separate trademark dispute with Walmart. The decision underscores the need for companies to have a brand protection strategy both domestically and abroad. The definition of "use in commerce" remains unclear and will likely be defined by future court cases.
