Subject: Makers of Glee TV show lose legal appeal

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/10/16 at 5:22 am

The makers of US TV show Glee have lost their appeal against a legal ruling that found in favour of the comedy club chain of the same name.

Comic Enterprises successfully argued in the High Court that 20th Century Fox's show breached its trademark right to The Glee Club name.

The show's broadcaster appealed against the 2014 ruling, but appeal court judges have dismissed their case.

It is not yet clear whether the Glee show's name will have to be changed.

Appeal court judges now have to consider whether EU trademark law affects the ruling.

Glee, which told of a group of high school outcasts who find a refuge in performing, ran from 2009 to 2015.
