"Paw Patrol" Toymaker Spin Master Sues Alleged Counterfeit Network

Toymaker Spin Master Ltd. sued unidentified companies in Illinois federal court on Friday 21st July 2017, alleging infringement of numerous trademarks for toys tied to Nickelodeon's popular CG-animated preschool series PAW Patrol.


The Toronto-based company and its U.S. arm, Spin Master Inc., filed suit against an undisclosed number of defendants; their identities are sealed in a separate document. But Spin Master says the defendants are violating multiple trademarks for the phrase "Paw Patrol," as well as trademarks for dog characters Tracker, Everest, Chase, Zuma, Skye, Rocky, Marshall and Rubble.

Full details about the lawsuit can be found here on Law360.

Produced by Spin Master Entertainment, PAW Patrol is a CG-animated, action-adventure preschool series starring a pack of eight heroic puppies led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder. The series' unique blend of problem-solving skills, cool vehicles and cute doggy humor has propelled it to become TV's number-one preschool series. PAW Patrol made its U.S. debut on Nickelodeon in August 2013 and has been picked up for a fifth season during which the heroic pack of pups – Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest and Tracker – will take to the high seas for Sea Patrol adventures where they'll meet a scallywag of a pirate and his dachshund pup pal. PAW Patrol airs on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels worldwide.
