FTDA Standing

Plaintiff is exclusive licensee, rather than owner, of trademarks at issue, and therefore lacks standing to sue for dilution of marks under Federal Trademark Dilution Act, since license agreements in present case reserve to licensor rights indicative of ownership.  (ICEE Distributors Inc. v. J&J Snack Foods Corp., 66 USPQ2d 1161, CA 5, 3/21/03).
