NDTV alleges Discovery of trademark violation, serves notice

MUMBAI: Media firm NDTV has issued a legal notice to infotainment broadcaster Discovery Networks alleging it of trademark violation.

NDTV has accused Discovery’s lifestyle channel TLC of misapropriately using the title of food reality show ‘Foodistan’, The Economic Times reported. Lifestyle channel NDTV Good Times had aired the show in January 2012.

NDTV, which also owns and operates a clutch of news channels including NDTV India and NDTV 24×7, said TLC has used the ‘Foodistan’ title for a cookery show. This is in disregard of trademark protocols, ET quoted an official as saying.

In the notice, NDTV has asked TLC to cease and desist from using the name ‘Foodistan’ to further its business, ET reported. It has also asked TLC to remove all references to ‘Foodistan’ from its channel and website.
