TitleThe Territorial System for Trademarks on the Internet: Our Only Real Choice
Author(s)Kevin Cowan
First Page536

Our present territorial system, I maintain, preserves national sovereignty, solves choice of law problems, and provides solutions to international trademark issues short of submitting sovereign nations to an arbitrary higher power.
