ASSET PURCHASE AGREEMENT TRANSFERRING TRADEMARK CANNOT BE WITHHELD IN TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT SUIT

This case involves companies who each use the trademark BRANDT for selling agricultural equipment, but in different geographic areas. Trademark attorneys for Pitonyak Machinery Corporation claimed it acquired rights to the trademark BRANDT when it purchased several businesses in 2002 from a Brandt family in Carlisle, Arkansas. During discovery, Pitonyak produced to lawyers for Brandt Industries, Ltd (the opposite party), the Asset Purchase Agreement but redacted (or blocked out) the purchase price, arguing it was not relevant. Brandt Industries filed a Motion to Compel Production of a non-redacted Version.
