Loeb & Loeb Obtains Victory in Trademark Dispute on Behalf of Comcast

Loeb & Loeb LLP secured a significant victory on behalf of Comcast Corporation when the U.S. District Court of the District of New Jersey granted summary judgment dismissing claims that Comcast’s former television and movie website infringed the registered trademark of another website called, which provides sports-related video content featuring fans as broadcasters.

U.S. District Judge Dickinson R. Debevoise found that there was no likelihood of confusion between the two marks, concluding that there was minimal overlap in the content of the Fancast and Fancaster websites and that the marks themselves were sufficiently distinct in appearance, sound and meaning. The judge also ruled that there is no evidence of any damage to the Fancaster mark caused by Comcast and therefore granted Comcast’s motion to preclude Fancaster from seeking a $73 million corrective advertising award. Additionally, the court refused to dismiss Comcast’s cybersquatting counterclaims against Fancaster, which arose out of Fancaster’s registration of dozens of Fancast domain names.

The Loeb & Loeb team defending Comcast in this matter included attorneys Doug Masters, Tal Dickstein and Edward Lee.
