Common law trademark in The Krusty Krab is making waves

A restauranteur was hoping to open a seafood restaurant chain in Texas and California called The Krusty Krab, to which the owners of the “SpongeBob SquarePants” TV series objected by filing a lawsuit for common law trademark infringement. Viacom’s cartoon character SpongeBob works at a fictional restaurant at the bottom of the sea called The Krusty Krab.

Led by products like the Sony PlayStation® VR and the Samsung Gear VR Headset, virtual reality could soon make its way beyond gaming and entertainment and into simulated training for high-stress, high-precision jobs in health care and the military. However, with the excitement of new technology comes issues related to intellectual property ownership.
