Operator of TravellersJoy.com Website Files Trademark Infringement, Dilution and Unfair Competition Complaint in Indiana Over Joyhoneymoon.com Website.

Indianapolis, Indiana – Trademark infringement litigation attorneys for Travellers’ Joy, Inc. of Wilmingon, Delaware has filed an infringement suit against Haycco, LLC of California in the Southern District of Indiana.

The complaint alleges infringement of US registration nos. 3,560,502 and 3,718,357, which are for stylized logos of the word TRAVELLER’S JOY for gift registration services. The plaintiff operates the website www.travelersjoy.com and defendant runs http://joyhoneymoon.com. The complaint also alleges trademark dilution and unfair competition.

The case has been assigned to Judge Tanya Walton Pratt and Magistrate Judge Tim A. Baker.

Practice Note: This complaint does not allege that either the plaintiff or the defendant is located in Indiana. The only alleged connection with Indiana is that Defendant “conducts business within this district,” but no details are provided. As reported elsewhere on this site, this may be insufficient to establish jurisdiction or venue. The only common element of both trademarks / sites in the word “joy.” At a minimum, it will be an uphill battle for the plaintiff to establish that this “trademark” is sufficiently “famous” to sustain the trademark dilution claim.
