Landmark Right of Publicity Case: Shaw Family Archives Ltd. v. CMG Worldwide

“Fight Sports” Trademark Ruled Generic and Invalid: CSI Entertainment, Inc v Anthem Media Group, Inc.

In this highly publicized dispute, during a preliminary injunction, Serbagi Law Firm scored a major victory for Canadian television companies Anthem Media Group Inc. and Fight Media Inc., who are behind the cable TV channel “Fight Network,” after they were sued for infringement by CSI Entertainment over the trademarks “Fight Sports” and “Fight Sports Network.” Serbagi Law Firm had the injunction thrown out after arguing the trademarks were generic and therefore invalid.
