Grubhub and Home Chef are engaged in a trademark battle over their logos.
According to a lawsuit filed by Grubhub on October 6, Home Chef sent a demand letter claiming that Grubhub’s new logo was too similar to the logo used by Home Chef.
In response, Grubhub filed this lawsuit seeking a declaratory judgment against Home Chef that the two logos can co-exist in the marketplace.
Grubhub claims that the company tried to resolve the dispute in a timely and amicable manner but that the “defendant is not interested in discussing the dispute.”
A lawsuit seeking declaratory relief is typically filed if a party wants to ensure it gets a case into a court of its choosing and believes that it needs to utilize litigation to resolve a dispute. I would now look for Home Chef to file counterclaims for trademark infringement. Grab your popcorn.
