The US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit affirmed a district court's decision dismissing a trade mark infringement claim by a co-founder of the Chicago restaurant Japonais based on the three other co-founders' expansion of the Japonais restaurant to New York and Las Vegas locations, because the operating agreements for the Japonais Chicago restaurant authorized such expansion; the 7th Circuit held that the co-founder's trade mark infringement claim failed as a matter of law because there could be no likelihood of confusion where the alleged infringer's use of the mark was authorized.
