In Mosley v. V Secret Catalogue, Inc., 537 US - (2003), the United States Supreme Court resolved a split among the federal circuits and held that the Federal Trademark Dilution Act of 1995, 15 U.S.C. § 1125(c) (2003), (FTDA) requires a plaintiff to show actual dilution, rather than a likelihood of dilution, in order to obtain an injunction.
