  • Plaintiff Societe des Bains de Mer et du Cercle des Etrangers a Monaco (referred to in the opinion as “SBM”) is the operator of certain casinos in the Principality of Monaco, and was the owner of United States trademark registration number 3,031,006 for the mark CASINO DE MONACO for use in connection with “providing casino services within a hotel environment”. SBM’s registration was based on SBM’s foreign registration of the mark and on its bona fide intention to use the mark in United States commerce in connection with the recited services.
