Briggs and Morgan shareholders Kristin Haugen and Gerald Helget were among a select few whose responses to a recent Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal survey were published in the Oct. 3, 2008 edition.

The question posed by the newspaper was:  What IP, copyright and/or trademark cases — locally or nationally — are you keeping tabs on and why are these cases important? Haugen concentrated on Vulcan Golf, LLC, et al. v. Google Inc., et al. and its potential implications for Internet advertising. Helget has been watching Egyptian Goddess, Inc. v. Swisa, Inc. for months and believes the outcome will bring more favorable and certain outcomes in design patent cases.
