Counterfeit Pharmaceutical Kills Music Legend Price – by Anthony Keats

counterfeit-pharmaceuticalsCOUNTERFEITING IS NOT A VICTIMELESS CRIME. In the last 24 hours it has been reported by CNN and others that the iconic music legend, PRINCE, became another victim of counterfeit pharmaceuticals. In bottles marked as Vitamin C and Aspirin pills were found containing the powerful anesthetizing drug, fentanyl. It is reported that fentanyl is fifty times stronger than heroin and one hundred times stronger than morphine in its debilitating effects on the human body. It is legitimately used with terminal cancer patients or as an anesthetic during surgery.

The US Food and Drug Administration (“USDA”) refers to counterfeit prescription drugs as: “fake, contaminated, ineffective, or otherwise unsafe ingredients; drugs that have not been tested by the FDA for safety and efficacy; drugs that don’t carry the correct amount of active ingredients or; drugs that carry harmful ingredients. How far are counterfeiters willing to go to victimize the pill-popping citizens of the United States? These organized efforts are part of a criminal secondary market that has produced incredible profits because legitimate prescription drugs are often too expensive for the average American. Part of the problem rests with big pharma itself which over the past several decades has inundated media with consumer advertising for prescription drugs from Viagra to Avastin.

The problems arising from counterfeit prescription drugs has been documented since at least as early as the 1980’s.Two well-publicized incidents attracted headlines. First, counterfeit Ovulen-21 birth control pills were being sold to American women. These pills had originated from Panama and were found to be ineffective. Second was the distribution of counterfeit Ceclor, an antibiotic, and Naprosyn, a pain reliever, by a sophisticated pharmaceutical educated resident of Iran. In line with these developments Congress passed the 1987 Prescription Drug Marketing Act or PDMA. The PDMA required states to license prescription drug wholesalers; put in place a requirement for non-authorized distributors to show the “pedigree” of the drug; and third, imposed requirements for the distribution and accountability of drug samples. Under pressure from various interest groups Congress and the FDA delayed imposing the “pedigree” requirements for decades until technology was developed in the form of Radio Frequency Devices (“RFD”) which allows manufacturers to track and trace each of the prescription drug products. Unfortunately, track and trace technology does not necessarily get used during the supply chain process of base chemical ingredients which are often sourced from third-world or lesser developed nations with lax quality control oversight.

In 2015, Congress enacted the Drug Supply Chain Security Act, which required all health care providers to provide prescription drugs to patients which are purchased from authorized licensed trading partners. However, as evidenced by a July 22nd release from the FDA; see “Counterfeit Prescription Pills Containing Fentanyls: A Global Threat” at www.DEA.gov. When it comes to fentanyl, the danger appears to be increasing. Chinese suppliers of legitimate ingredients are at the same time manufacturing large amounts of uninspected synthetic ingredients like fentanyl. The report indicates that counterfeiters can transform as little as one kilogram of fentanyl powder costing a few thousand dollars into hundreds of thousands of counterfeit pills reaping millions of dollars in profits.

Trafficking in counterfeit pharmaceuticals is subject to both criminal and civil penalties. So when consumers think that it’s fun to buy knock-offs they ought to think about the fact that they themselves could be a victim of this dangerous game. The death of the icon of the “Minneapolis Sound” in his Paisley Park home will effect America’s culture for decades to come.

Brexit and Intellectual Property Rights

brexitThe withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union will have many consequences for businesses around the globe. However, it appears to be the consensus of expert commentators on the law of the UK and the EU that it is unlikely that there will be any immediate dramatic changes to how intellectual property rights will be treated in the UK.  To read the full publication in the Los Angeles Daily Journal, written by Tony Keats, click here.

SAM Alert – “.sucks” gTLD – End of Sunrise Period Quickly Approaching

.sucksAs the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has released new generic top-level domains (gTLDS), clients concerned about protecting their trademarks and famous names need to review their positions with respect to “defensive” domain name registrations.  The new gTLD receiving a surprising amount of attention is “.sucks”. Owners of registered trademarks who register prior to June 19, 2015 ( end of ‘Sunrise Period) with the Trademark Clearing House of ICANN will have the first opportunity to purchase the “.sucks” gTLD domain names. Those trademark owners who do not register or are not registered may still have an opportunity to acquire this gTLD . Unfortunately they may also face having to buy the “.sucks” gTLD from cybersquatters or those who seek to criticize the business or activities of the trademark owner.

The Trademark Clearing House fee to acquire the “.sucks” domain name during the Sunrise Period is higher than after the window closes as no priority is guaranteed. So the rights holder must consider how far it needs to go in defensively protecting its reputation or famous marks. Is it important to stop all gTLD’s using your trademark or name? Do you want to have to manage a portfolio of non-productive domain names? While critics of a company or individual might use the new “.sucks” gTLD to launch a website that contains criticism, how much of a difference would such a website make to the business or career of the target?  Couldn’t the same critics more easily use social media such as TWITTER or FACEBOOK to communicate the same criticism and possibly with greater impact and less effort?  A rights holder must also consider how difficult it will be under the current law to be able to stop such websites based on trademark infringement as such websites have been found not to violate owners’ trademark rights. Although the content of the site may be the basis for other legal claims.

Nevertheless, there are certain businesses and personalities for whom the existence of a critical or seemingly defamatory web presence cannot be tolerated. In such instances, obtaining the “.sucks” gTLD as well as “.XXX, .porn, and .adult” gTLD’s makes sense and provides a comfort level knowing that someone cannot post on these websites or hold up the rightful name owner for large sums of  money to acquire these gTLD’s.

Please contact your principal attorney at SAM or SAM’s Intellectual Property Group to assist you in obtaining any of the new gTLD’s during the sunrise period or thereafter.

Obtaining a Federal Trademark Registration

Trademark Registration

The Federal Circuit in Couture v. Playdom, No. 2014-1480 (Fed. Cir. March 2, 2015) clarified that in order to obtain a U.S. trademark or service mark registration there must be actual trademark “use” (15 U.S.C. 1051) prior to filing an application to register or filing a Statement of Use (intent-to-use applications) with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Practical Pointers

1. A photograph on a website or the advertising of a product is not sufficient to establish “use”. A product must be shipped in commerce.  Keep documentation of earliest shipments.

2. A service offered on a website or simply advertised is not sufficient to establish “use”. The service must be provided in commerce. Keep records showing earliest provision of services.”

  Kathryn Ireland, Million Dollar Decorators Star,
and Acclaimed Interior Designer

Kathryn M. Ireland is an interior decorator internationally renowned for her worldly flair, easy sophistication, and a covetable design aesthetic that emphasizes comfort, color, and, ALWAYS, a magical dash of the unexpected. As a child growing up in London, Kathryn visited grand houses of unparalleled beauty all over England and immersed herself in the varied design traditions of these estates –furnishings of generous dimension, uninhibited expression of pattern and color, and graceful arrangements of objects and collections. Kathryn’s predisposition for the imperfect elegance of the English manor house followed her to Los Angeles where she has decorated homes of the Hollywood elite for over 25 years. Her Spanish Revival residence in Santa Monica is a pure reflection of her refined eye, her romantic attention to detail, and an innate understanding of the function of the home. Capacious, slip-covered sofas rub elbows with mid-century pieces, contemporary art, and tribal accents sourced from her wide and extensive travels. Ireland’s characteristic mingling of period and idiom may be highbrow, but she always aims to achieve a lived-in atmosphere. In fact, what supersedes every aesthetic consideration is quality, comfort, and an immediate sense of style and warmth. Ireland’s passion for layering pattern and color is well-documented and reflected in everything she does; but her emphasis on comfort and the practical considerations of day-to-day living – kids, animals, and the occasional over-served guest bobbling red wine – is what makes her the ideal designer for clients who want unique, stylish environments, but not at the expense of real, modern life.

 

 

  Jeff Jampol, Jampol Artist Management, Inc.  (JAM, Inc.)

As the founder and head of JAM Inc., which manages rock legends The Doors, Ramones, and the Estates of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Tupac Shakur, Otis Redding, Peter Tosh and Rick James, Jampol has had ample opportunity to consider such issues. Indeed, he and his team are fond of citing the “Hippocratic Oath of Rock” as a guiding principle: First, do no harm to the artist’s legacy. But Jampol doesn’t view himself merely as a curator of classic catalogues. “The goal is to extend the reach of the artist and their work, using new distribution channels, new technology and other emerging resources, to place timeless art into a modern context.”

 He was the producer of the recent Broadway hit, “An Evening with Janis”, and in 2009 The Doors Theatrical documentary “When You’re Strange”.
