Oculu vs. Oculus: Complaint

As promised, I am keeping track of the Oculu v. Oculus trademark case.  Attached is the complaint as filed in Federal Court in the Central District of California.  There are currently 7 causes of action:

Complaint: Oculus_v_Oculu

  1. Trademark Infringement under 15 U.S.C. section 1114
  2. False Designation of Origin under 15 U.S.C. section 1125a
  3. Trademark Dilution under 15 U.S.C. section 1125c
  4. Cancellation of Oculus’ Application for Trademarks under 15 U.S.C. section 1119
  5. Unfair Business Practices under California law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code section 17200)
  6. California Trademark Dilution under California law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code section 14247)
  7. Injury to Business Reputation under California Common law

I am submitting this without comment other than I urge interested parties to read the complaint.  As far as complaints go, it’s rather entertaining.

  1. Did these attorneys bother to proofread their pleading? Poorly written, not to mention highly entertaining.

    This is exactly the kind of calling out that these laughably fraudulent claims deserve. I work in an industry that relies on streaming video, and I’d never heard of Oculu before this suit, and now I’m glad I know their name so that I can actively avoid ever using their services.
