Hasbro sues DC over "Bumblebee"
« on: August 29, 2017, 02:10:00 PM »


Hasbro, who trademarked "Bumblebee" in Dec 2015 and has used the name since 1983, is suing DC, who introduced the Teen Titans character in 1977, over the name. Hasbro claims that DC's Bumblebee can bee too easily confused the the Transformers character, probably citing the many cases of children accidentally coming home from Toys-R-Us with a shrinking female superhero action figure instead of the desired yellow automobile that transforms into a warrior robot.
