Tracy-Gene Durkin is quoted in a IP Law360 article covering a case between Toys R Us and Luv N' Care Ltd. regarding a baby drinking cup patent. The case is notable in that it is the first time the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has instituted an inter partes review for a design patent. Durkin commended the Patent Trial and Appeal Board for displaying a firm grasp of design patent law, stating that "the board had not seen a design patent case before, so it did a good job of citing the appropriate law."
