| | Lindland Returns Fire on ‘Hendo’ in Team Quest Lawsuit
Link to full article: Lindland Returns Fire on
Matt Lindland loudly answered former teammate Dan Henderson’s lawsuit against him over the Team Quest logo and name. |
Not only does Lindland now ask the California federal court to dismiss Henderson’s complaint altogether, but in his answer to Henderson’s complaint, he also countersues the Strikeforce light heavyweight champion for claims including trademark and copyright infringement, unfair competition, deceptive advertising, breach of contract, and interference with Lindland’s future business relationships.
Henderson fired the first shot in this legal dispute by filing the lawsuit on Feb. 14, alleging trademark infringement, copyright infringement, and unfair competition against Lindland and his company, Team Quest Fight Club, LLC.
For those interested in intellectual property discussion, this battle between Henderson and Lindland presents a most interesting case study. The 2 sides are suing each other for the rights to use the 'Team Quest' name. Henderson has been using the name and logo before Lindland got involved with the team, but legally, Lindland owns the trademark. But both guys have been using the name without a formal agreement, and are suing to stop the other guy from doing so going forward. This sounds like a common law marriage that's about to end with an ugly divorce settlement. Should be settled with a middleweight match up.
