Comic-Con Vs. Salt Lake Stalemates; Headed Toward Jury Trial?

Here.

As always, I have sympathy for the position that comic-con is a generic term. I went to comic-cons, comicons and comic cons before I knew there was a San Diego Con. At the same time, I just put "Comic-Con" in my headline and I imagine very few people will think that's a generic being cited. I believe most will have San Diego on the mind. I really do feel that all of these shows are pinching the San Diego model and drafting on their success. They're not bringing a generic comic-con to their audiences, they're clearly bringing what people have heard San Diego is like to their audiences. I don't know how that gets adjudicated.
