A trademark dispute between two drone racing businesses will go forward because there’s a thin but plausible claim of customer confusion, a federal judge ruled Nov. 26.Both the Drone Racing League Inc., and DR1 LLC are “similarly engaged in the business of conducting and promoting drone races,” the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York said. DRL says DR1’s logo is too similar to its own registered trademark and has caused actual marketplace confusion.

商標登録insideNews: Peatos CEO: Cheetos Trademark Claim Won’t Stop Brand Success | Project NOSH

In May, PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division, which makes Cheetos, accused World Peas Brand’s Peatos, which uses peas and lentils in its version of the traditional crunchy cheese flavored snack, of trademark infringement. In a letter sent to the smaller company that was recently obtained by the Wall Street Journal, PepsiCo alleges that Peatos’ name and paw-print logo are “confusingly similar” to Cheetos and that Peato’s slogan, “tigers live longer than cheetahs,” unfairly denigrates the Cheetos brand.
