Disney’s Frozen 2 accused of trade mark infringement
Disney are being accused of trade mark infringement over the use of the trade marked slogan ‘Trust Your Journey’ on their Frozen 2 merchandise.
Created by a breast cancer survivor in Nevada USA, the now well-known cancer awareness group registered the slogan as a trade mark with the USPTO in 2007.
The complaint, filed by the awareness group to the Nevada Federal Court, claims that the use of the slogan on Disney’s Frozen 2 merchandise including t-shirts, posters and jewellery, infringes their earlier registered rights.
The cancer awareness group have been using the registered slogan mark on ‘environmentally friendly and inspirational goods' and sells a range of products under the mark on products including clothing and jewellery, which have generated $4million worth of sales.
In accordance with the USPTO, the Walt Disney Company currently have no mark application for the ‘Trust Your Journey’ slogan used on their Frozen 2 merchandise.
Disney have yet to comment on the alleged infringement.
