Martin Guitar in the Spotlight at Musical Instrument Museum

As part of its function as outside intellectual property counsel, Stradley Ronon represented Martin Guitar for purposes of an exhibition license agreement with Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). MIM is a non-profit museum located in Phoenix, Arizona, and displays more than 6,500 instruments and associated objects collected from about 200 of the world’s countries and territories, including certain of Martin’s instruments. MIM’s latest special exhibition, titled “Dragons And Vines: Inlaid Guitar Masterpieces,” is scheduled to run from November 5, 2016 through September 4, 2017. The agreement allows MIM to make and sell a variety of products, to publish an exhibition catalog, and to distribute advertising or promotional materials that include images of the Martin guitars (and related trademarks) on display in the exhibition.
