Weber lawsuit vs Sears over grill design more than just smoke, judge says

By Scott Holland | Sep 8, 2015

The makers of the iconic Weber backyard grill may get their chance to prove at trial Sears intentionally aped the Weber design for its own store-brand grills, after a federal judge said there may be more than just smoke to Weber’s infringement claims against the retailer. Palatine-based Weber-Stephen Products, creator of the eponymous Weber Grill, filed suit in federal court in 2013 against Sears, alleging some Kenmore grills infringe on Weber’s trade dress.
