Davidoff v. CVS Corp., No. 07-2872

In a trademark infringement action, district court order issuing a preliminary injunction enjoining defendant from selling plaintiff's trademarked products with the unique production code removed is affirmed where district court correctly found that plaintiff was likely to succeed on the merits in its contention that defendant's sales of its products with the UPC removed constituted trademark infringement, as the UPC codes play an important role in controlling quality and helping the trademark owner guard against counterfeits and protect the reputation of the mark.
