On July 25, 2005, the Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit affirmed the Western District of Missouri’s dismissal of Frosty Treat’s complaint against Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc. Frosty Treats asserted claims under state and federal law for trademark infringement and dilution, and for unfair competition, based on Son’y depiction of an ice cream truck and clown character in Sony’s Twisted Metal video game series. A complete case summary will be forthcoming, but for now the opinion can be obtained here.
