Calboli on Trademark Assignment in Gross

My colleague Irene Calboli has written a paper on trademark assignment in gross entitled Trademark Assignment With Goodwill: A Concept Whose Time Has Gone, scheduled to be published in the Florida Law Review later this year. She thoroughly recounts the history of, and policy debates about, the assignment in gross rule and offers her solutions. Trademark assignments create both practical and theoretical problems, and this paper is worth reading if you’re interested in either.
