Bleeding Cool previously reported that Marvel Comics was challenging last year’s attempt by Rodriguez Publishing to register the trademark for Mister Fantastic for use in comics.
Well, it seems that Rodriguez have discovered they are onto a losing game and terminated the trademark registration attempt.
As a result, the US Office of Trademarks has declared “If, in an inter partes proceeding, the applicant files an abandonment without the written consent of every adverse party to the proceeding, judgment shall be entered against Applicant. In view thereof, and because Opposer’s written consent to the abandonment is not of record, judgment is entered against Applicant, the opposition is sustained and registration to applicant is refused.”
Which means it’s party, party, party at Marvel Comics tonight!
Now, if only they would publish a comic with Mister Fantastic, you know, actually in it.
