DC mistakes Valencia soccer team's logo for a Batman ripoff

They're suing the Spanish soccer club for supposedly ripping off the Batman logo, even though they don't look the same, and according to Eurosport:
“Considering that the image of a bat has been commonly used in Spanish heraldry since the 13th century, and that Valencia have used bats in their club logos since 1919 (20-odd years before Batman existed), we’d say that it’ll need a lawyer with genuine superpowers if they’re to prove their case.”
Wow, this is what worries DiDio and company? No wonder they're so artistically bankrupt, because somebody else's logo conceived long before theirs is all they care about. Suits like these only prove the company's staff became a joke who worry about petty matters.

Labels: , , ,

Trademark holders are required by law to defend their mark or risk losing it; companies attempt to block registration, or sue after the fact, all the time.

It's also doubtful DiDio, Lee, et al had any involvement. It would've been handled by Business & Legal Affairs, or on the Warner Bros. level.

Yes, you've got a point.
