    I agree they should use SLC Comic Con's logo instead of SD's.

    That being said, the cease and desist letter immediately made me lose all respect for SDCC and I will never attend the event based on that loss of respect.

    I'm not sure why SDCC is so threatened by SLCC as SDCC already sells out in minutes flat. SLCC does nothing to threaten their ticket sales. The only thing that threatens their ticket sales is their stunt here.

    In the end, the op has one thing right: whether SDCC wins the dispute or SLCC does, SLCC is the ultimate winner. SDCC can't gain anything more by their actions, but SLCC gains a lot whether or not they get to keep the name. Thanks for the free publicity, SDCC!

    Check again; the publicity the article is taking about isn't about Salt Lake leeching off the rep of the San Diego comic con but rather the publicity being generated by San Diego's laughable attempt at a law suit.

    Sad that I can't be in SLC for this event. The Motor City Comic Con (which has called itself that since 1989) is nowhere near as big and well attended.

    To the editors of DN:
    You are using photos of San Diego's Comic Con. It would be more appropriate to use photos of Salt Lake City's convention when writing articles about your convention. San Diego’s Comic Con is distinct as evidenced by the very fact that your newspaper is using our photos rather than using your own convention’s photos. If you convention is so special, then use your photos and explain what makes your festival unique.
    The article nailed it when writing “The value of the publicity that is flowing to the event is incalculable.” – exactly! You are stealing off of the valuable reputation San Diego built up around our San Diego Comic Con.
    My advice to residents of Utah: Come to San Diego and experience what we have to offer. Salt Lake’s convention is pale by comparison.
