@OneWifeOnlyI 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!

comic con but rather the publicity being generated by San Diego's laughable
attempt at a law suit.Greg
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.
