writes: Hearst Communications (owners of Cosmopolitan magazine) are suing a Las Vegas development for trademark infringement.
Hearst Communications, a Heart Corp. subsidiary, claims the Cosmopolitan development has tried to confuse the public into thinking the project is associated with the publishing company.
Hearst also wants a court order preventing the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office from approving any of the resort's two dozen applications to use Cosmopolitan or Cosmo throughout the development. Hasn't the word 'cosmopolitan' been around longer than the magazine, and used as a drink name? And also used to describe a person, as well as used in the names of many other products.
