Food Fight!

Now I have never had the privilege of eating a Sprinkles cupcake, but I have heard from my SoCal friends that they are mighty good. Apparently their signature is a circle on circle image that they use on their cupcakes, packaging, website, and in their store.

Like any smart business, they filed for a federal trademark in 2005 and received a registration in 2007.

In August, Sprinkles filed suit against their arch nemesis, Famous Cupcakes, alleging it’s use of a dot motif on its cupcakes, packaging, and website infringes Sprinkles’ trademark.
