Netflix sued for alleged trademark infringement

Many of us remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books that were popular during the '80s and '90s. Most people don't realize just how wildly popular the series has been, though. The fact is that the series has sold more than 265 million copies worldwide. This means that the intellectual property associated with Choose Your Own Adventure has significant value. This is why the series' publisher recently filed a trademark lawsuit against Netflix for its film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

Entertainment law and the preliminary injunction

Those who enter into the realm of entertainment typically wind up possessing a bundle of rights. An individual may acquire copyrights to a number of creative works, but the protections don't end there. For example, an individual has the right to prevent others from benefiting from his or her likeness without authorization. Personality and life rights can have tremendous value, too, so those who infringe on those rights can wind up stealing significant financial resources.
