David Copperfield Files Trademark For “DC” Comics

dcDavid Copperfield, internationally famous magician (and not the Dickens novel) has filed to register “DC” with this logo for, amongst others;

paper goods, namely, calendars, notebooks, posters and stickers; photograph albums, autograph books, binders, bookends, series of fiction books, memo pads, comic books, comic strips, cartoon strips, children activity books, story books, coloring books, comic books, diaries; series of books in the field of magic; blank journal books; paper and cardboard articles, namely, paper party favors, paper party bags, printed invitations, trading cards; office supplies, namely, ball point pens, envelopes, staplers; school supplies, namely, color pencils, erasers, note paper, pen or pencil holders, pencils, pencil sharpeners, pen and pencil cases, pens, writing paper, writing implements

Trademarking DC for comic books (twice)? I don’t think Warner Bros. will put up with that. I look forward to reading opposition documents soon. Especially after this article has run and made the DC Entertainment lawyers aware of the situation.

As long as we don’t get a DC Shoes situation, in which Warners challenging the DC Shoes logo with a star in it found that Warners never got round to actually registering the DC logo and ended up having to pay DC Shoes a six figure sum every year until DC Comics changed their logo to something with a peel.

But maybe David Copperfield has something up his sleeve…
