Elon Musk’s X hit with trademark lawsuit from marketing agency

X Corp, formerly known as Twitter, was sued in federal court in Florida on Monday by a legal marketing company that claims the social media giant’s new name infringes its trademark incorporating the letter “X.” The lawsuit by X Social Media claims that X Corp, which owner Elon Musk began rebranding to X from Twitter in July, was likely to cause consumer confusion.

The case appears to be the first of what could be numerous trademark disputes with Musk’s company over the letter “X,” which is commonly used in tech branding. “X” is included in hundreds of federal trademarks owned by companies including Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Meta Platforms. X Corp applied for its own U.S. trademarks covering the letter last month.

X Corp did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the complaint. X Social Media declined to comment.

Windermere, Florida-based X Social Media is an ad agency focused on mass-tort litigation. Its website says that Jacob and Roseanna Malherbe founded the agency in 2015 to connect Florida panhandle residents with attorneys in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The lawsuit said the agency has used the “X Social Media” name since 2016 and owns a federal trademark covering it. It said it has invested more than $400 million in Facebook advertising to reach potential clients. The company said Twitter’s rebrand has already confused customers and caused it to lose revenue.

“In a short time, X Corp has wielded its social media clout, marketing resources, and overall national notoriety to dominate consumer perception of its ‘X’ mark,” the lawsuit said. X Social Media asked the court to force Musk’s company to stop using the “X” name and requested an unspecified amount of money damages.

Bear Spotted At Rice Lake Road Construction Site In Duluth

I am OBSESSED with this! A bear decided to crash a construction site in Duluth. While we don’t know exactly what the bear was doing, I am guessing he was checking out the site to see how far along the project was?

St. Louis County, Minnesota shared a photo of the cutie on social media Wednesday (August 23rd), joking that someone was not reading the signs that the construction site was closed to traffic! The bear was spotted at the site on Rice Lake Road in Duluth.

THROWBACK: Bear Hangs Outside The Miller Hill Mall

The site is for culvert replacement work so the bear might have just wanted to see how it was coming along. The bear must have also approved of the work so far because the road is still on schedule to reopen on Saturday (August 26th).

The best part of the photo, aside from the cute bear, is the comments section. People absolutely loves this bear-y cute picture and went to town with the bear puns for the occasion, as they should.

If you have a few minutes, it is definitely worth reading through all of the puns but I would like to highlight some of my favorite ones in the meantime, because they gave me a good laugh! Someone even won the internet by photoshopping a hard hat on the bear. Ha!
