MARK CROSS NAME ACQUIRED: The new company Mark W. Cross & Co. has acquired the worldwide rights to the Mark Cross trademark from Sara Lee Corp. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Mark W. Cross firm is owned by J.P. Wilikin Jr., a former Travelpro luggage company executive who last year had filed a petition with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for the trademark and set up a business under that name. Since an agreement was arranged, the petition has been canceled.
