Buc-ee's v. Chick's

|Detail Of False Allegations Made By Buc-ee's About Chick's Logo|
Paragraph 24 Exactly As Worded |
In The Original Complaint Against Chick's
(slightly modified for presentaion only - no content has been altered. Emphasis added.)
|24. Defendants' anthropomorphic and cartoon representation of the chickens as shown above in connection with a convenience store copies the most important aspects of the iconic BUC-EE'S Marks. Specifically, besides Defendants' improper use of friendly smiling cartoon animals, Defendants have copied the BUC-EE'S Marks with:|
|(i) the use of a black circle encompassing the chickens (compare to the black circle around the beaver),|
|(2) use of a yellow background (compare to the yellow surrounding the beaver),|
|(3) use of the red-colored cockscomb on the heads of the chickens (compare to the red hat on the beaver),|
|(4) prominent use of sharply drawn black edges for the chicken mascots (compare to the sharp crisp black edges defining the beaver, and|
|(5) the use of six letters in raised and lowered block font in the name "CHICKS" (compare to six letters and block font of BUC-EE'S)|
Although the numbered examples run 1 through 5, there are actually 6 specific claims made in Paragraph 24. Let us consider the claims one at a time.
The improper use of friendly smiling cartoon animals
The the use of a black circle
The use of a yellow background
The use of the red-colored cockscomb on the heads of the chickens
The prominent use of sharply drawn black edges
The use of six letters in raised and lowered block font in the name
|The Boobs Of Buc-ee's|
|Visit one of the latest page additions, Buc-ee's Boobs, also know as The Lying Lawyers Of Buc-ee's, a listing of all of the lawyers used by Buc-ee's in its frivolous trade dress lawsuits. They are typical corporate lawyers who lie in court filings in order to serve the over-reaching desires and demands of their competition snuffing clients. But hey, country club memberships are expensive. Ckick here for The Boobs Of Buc-ee's.|
|Just to refresh your memory, a recap of lawsuits involving Buc-ee's eight frivolous trademark actions.|
On December 2, 2008, Bucky's (Nebraska) filed a trademark non-infringement complaint against the Texas-based bully Buc-ee's
but only AFTER Buc-ee's filed to stop Bucky's from obtaining a federally registeredrademark with the USPTO
On March 8, 2013, Buc-ee's filed a trademark infringement complaint against the Texas-based Chick's.
On July 16, 2013, Buc-ee's filed a trademark infringement complaint against Utah-based Beaver Water.
On November 13, 2013 Buc-ee's filed a trademark infringement complaint against the Texas-based Irv's.
On July 3, 2014, Buc-ee's filed a trademark infringement complaint against the Texas-based Frio River Grocery, the Frio Beaver Logo.
On December 23, 2015 Buc-ee's filed a trademark infringement complaint against the Texas-based Choke Canyon Travel Center
On March 14, 2017, Buc-ee's filed a trademark opposition complaint against Nebraska-based Bucky's in violation of their 2009 settlement agreement where Buc-ee's waived any future opposition to Bucky's.
On March 15, 2017, Buc-ee's filed a USPTO trademark opposition complaint against Sam's Mart
|Every one of these cases was, and still is, without factual merit. No reasonable person could find any of these logos confusingly similar with that stupid beaver. No reasonable person could find any of Buc-ee's trade dress claims to be valid.|
We have never posted a request like this one before but Buc-ee's and its lawyers are so over-reaching in these frivolous lawsuits.
Leave the Beaver standing in his own pee. It's what he deserves.
