SDCC Sues Salt Lake Convention Over “Comic Con” Name

Comic Con International has sued Salt Lake Comic Con, accusing the fledgling Utah convention of trademark infringement and attempting to “confuse and deceive” fans, and exhibitors with its use of the term “Comic Con.”

In a complaint filed Thursday in San Diego federal court, and first reported by The Salt Lake Tribune, Comic-Con International seeks damages and an injunction preventing Salt Lake organizers from using any variation of the “Comic-Con” name.

The lawsuit arrived less than two weeks after Comic Con International sent a cease and desist letter accusing the fledgling convention of trademark infringement, and just a day after Salt Lake Comic Con producers issued a press release — their second one on the matter — vowing the September convention “won’t be stopped by San Diego.”
