Closure gets closure from Second Circuit

Schutte Bagclosures Inc. v. Kwik Lok Corp., No. 16-2767 (2d Cir. Nov. 2, 2017): In a summary opinion, the Second Circuit affirmed a district court finding that the design of Kwik Lok’s bag closures, albeit registered as a mark by the PTO, was functional and thus unprotectable by trademark law, as well as the belt-and-suspenders finding that no confusion was likely.  Thanks to an eagle-eyed correspondent who should probably buy this vase as a reward for learning so much about bag closures.
