- Excerpt from The Power Shifts Back to Kelly-Brown:

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the dismissal of Kelly-Brown’s trademark infringement claims against Oprah Winfrey. Kelly-Brown owns the registered trademark OWN YOUR POWER for motivational seminars. Kelly-Brown sued Winfrey for infringement following Winfrey’s use of “Own Your Power” as a major headline on its monthly O Magazine, as the title of a promotional event that included a motivational seminar, and as a prominently featured aspect of the Oprah website.
