Logan Cooper BLAW 3201-10 Chapter 3 Case Brief Rio Properties, Inc. v. Rio International Interlink United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, 2002, 284 F.3d 1007. Facts : Rio Properties, Inc. owns the Las Vegas hotel, RIO All Suite Casino Resort, as well as other gaming enterprises. Rio Properties actively sought to protect its rights to the “RIO” name though various trademarks with the Unites States Patent and Trademark Office, to maintain its strategic position in the gaming industry. In order to target a broader audience, Rio also marketed itself through the domain name www.playrio.com. Rio International Interlink, a Costa Rican business, conducted an online sports wagering operation. RIO became aware of RII through a radio advertisement campaign RII conducted in Las Vegas for its sports wagering website www.riosports.com. RIO issued an epistle calling for RII to cease and desist its operation of the www.riosports.com website. RII quickly closed the disputed website; however, it started a nearly identical operation at www.betrio.com.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
