— World Wrestling Entertainment has been involved in a multi-year trademark dispute with Muscle Flex Inc. over their “In the Raw” trademarks, which WWE claimed infringed on their “WWE RAW” property. Muscle Flex Inc. is now claiming victory over WWE after a ruling from the CIPO (Canadian Intellectual Property Office). From Reuters.com:
On June 18, 2008, the CIPO (Canadian Intellectual Property Office) issued a final decision that found certain wares listed in the WWE “RAW” trademark application 1,153,018 were confusingly similar and thus lacked distinctiveness from the “In the Raw” registered trademark, which Muscle Flex is in the process of acquiring. The WWE appealed the CIPO’s ruling to the Federal Court of Canada, but failed to file the required documents by the deadline. On April 22, 2009, a Notice of Discontinuance was issued by the Federal Court of Appeals of Canada that formally ended the multi year trademark dispute.
