News of another cupcake lawsuit broke today, this time of Sprinkles Cupcakes suing a bakery in Fairfield, Connecticut called Pink Sprinkles Cupcakes. My personal two cents, speaking only as myself, is that you should make your company name as unique as possible and that Sprinkles will likely win this won, as they have with other lawsuits, but that remains to be seen (we'll keep you posted!). Via Forbes:
Nelson's company, Sprinkles Cupcakes, is so frosted that it filed a federal trademark-infringement lawsuit Friday in Connecticut against a store named Pink Sprinkles. The lawsuit claims the similarity in names is likely to cause confusion in the marketplace.
"The resulting confusion will damage Sprinkles and injure its reputation in the trade and with the public," the lawsuit says.
That being said, here are some cupcake photos from Pink Sprinkles on Facebook, because I'm always in favor of more cupcakes being consumed. You can also follow them @pinksprinklescc on Twitter.
