San Diego Comic-Con Suing Utah Convention Over Name

avengers-panel-san-diego-comic-con

Organizers of the biggest comic-book convention in the nation sued their counterparts in Salt Lake City over the event's name, saying it confuses fans into thinking the two are affiliated.
San Diego Comic-Con's lawsuit, which was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Southern California, says the use of "comic con" in Salt Lake Comic Con's name constitutes federal trademark infringement.
Utah organizers have been capitalizing on San Diego's "creativity, ingenuity and hard work" through unauthorized use of its trademarks to promote their own convention, said the complaint, which seeks damages and an injunction.
