Kansas City shuttle company ordered to pay $500K for trademark infringement

Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
As upsetting as it is to not be able to collect on the judgment right away, at least it creates the basis for being able to enforce the judgment if the defendants continue to do business. With businesses that have a physical presence, it is much easier to enforce such judgments because, in order for them to offer services, they have to physically be present in the jurisdiction where they have a judgment against them. So the trademark owner will either get paid or at least will be able to ensure that the competitor no longer does business under a confusingly similar brand. Or possibly both.
