It’s Oatmeal vs. Oatmeal in a new trademark suit
Internet comic The Oatmeal is back in the legal spotlight after a Massachusetts greetings card company began litigation against the comic for allegedly infringing its trademark.
According to Ars Technica, who first reported the story, the popular Web comic’s creator Matthew Inman is being sued by Oatmeal Studios, after Inman joined forces with Recycled Greetings to offer greetings cards based on The Oatmeal’s comics.
This caught the eye of Oatmeal Studios, which then filed a suit against Inman in a Boston, Mass. courtroom, claiming a trademark on the term “Oatmeal Studios.”
