We’d like to share this trademarking example from recent news headlines. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo started an Asian Lantern Festival in the summer of 2018 and has continued offering the event on an annual basis since 2018.
The Pittsburgh Zoo is now also embarking on an Asian Lantern Festival of their own, beginning in August 2021.
It looks like the competition between Cleveland and Pittsburgh now extends past professional sports!
The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has filed a federal complaint against the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium over the name of the Asian Lantern Festival.
