By way of the Courthouse News Service, we’ve learned that publisher Konami has sued a company by the name of Vintage Sports Cards. Although there have been a number of video games in the series, at issue is Konami Yu-Gi-Oh! card game.
Vintage Sports Cards is selling repackaged Yu-Gi-Oh! trading cards with counterfeit "rare cards," Konami Corp. says in a trademark and copyright complaint in Los Angeles Federal Court. The cards are based on manga, or comic books, which are wildly popular in Japan.
GP: The complaint has not yet been posted on the federal docketing system, but we’ll add it when it appears.
