New name comes alongside duel in post-trial motions
Really thought they were going to rule the other way on this one given there are
so many events called "comic cons." Wacky. Either way it's a killer
event that can stand on its own. I agree with the naming contest idea. Of course
it could backfire like Boaty McBoatface...
This doesn't make a lot of sense because "Comic Con" was in use
long before San Diego Comic Con even existed. Not sure why that evidence
wasn't allowed.The amount of people who think Comic Con only
applies to San Diego certainly is such a small percentage of the public that it
might actually be zero.Regardless of the lack of common-sense logic,
it is time to move on. FanX it is.
Could it also be that they don't want to pay the fees associated with
the"Comic con" affiliation?
"comic con was a limitation because sometimes people gave us a hard time for
not bringing in more comic artists":Why did they choose that name in
the first place? I missed the first SL Comic Con because I assumed it was
focused on comic books. I only got interested in it the second year after I
heard that it was actually broader.
I find it hard to believe that anyone really cares.
When I hear "comic con" I don't think of a specific event location
or think of a trademark. Of course I'm not a $400/hr trial lawyer. And I
haven't read a comic book since I was maybe 16, I'm only moderately
entertained by the endless parade of superhero movies, and I haven't ever
attended a comic convention. Although, I do like Big Bang Theory and their
superhero costumes. I've got to think that lawyers laughed all
the way to the bank on this one, what with San Diego's $4.5 million lawyer
fees alone. Does San Diego think they are really going to recoup that just by
having sole use of "comic con"? And the article intimates that there
are lots more comic conventions around the country that uses "comic con"
in their names. SLC should have seen this coming, what with the
trial being held in ultra liberal California. Maybe they should hold a naming
contest for their comic convention, since there are millions of fans who could
come up with a better name than "FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention".
Maybe offer a grand prize to the winner. Maybe it would generate a lot of
publicity. Try these names out for size:Salt Lake Comic Superhero
