  3. 3. 3 Question for Study #1 1. The Federal Trademark Act of 1946, also known as the “Lanham Act,” governs the laws of trademarks, registration of trademarks, and solvents for violations of already registered trademarks. In 1989, Congress revised the antiquated Lanham Act with the Trademorks Law Revision Act. The revisions provided more specific clarity regarding the laws of sport trademark registrations and licensing. 2. In the late 1880’s Congress enacted the first federal trademark law. The law considers trademarks to be a form of property and is governed by both state and federal law. Trademark owners that choose to not register their trademark(s) and conduct business over the course of an extended period of years are protected by the “tort of passing off” In 1989 the Trademarks Law Revision Act went into effect. This law was Congress’s first overall revision of the Lanham Act since 1946. As a result of this revised Lanham Act, the sports trademark registration and licensing process was directly effected as a result of the revision in regards to the federal trademark law.
