District court order denying defendant's motion to compel arbitration and stay proceedings involving claims of patent and trade dress infringement is reversed where: 1) the Federal Circuit does not have exclusive jurisdiction over the appeal as the court's order was neither final nor injunctive, and the present court has jurisdiction pursuant to 9 U.S.C. sec. 16(a)(1); and 2) the court erred in denying the motion as the dispute fell within the broad language of one of the arbitration provisions of the parties' agreement.
