Hell’s Angels Accuse Disney of Hogging Its Trademark

The Hell’s Angels filed suit this month in federal district court against behemoth Walt Disney Company for trademark infringement. In the suit, the oldest surviving motorcycle club in America alleges that Buena Vista Pictures, a division of Disney, uses the club’s trademark “helmeted horned and feathered skull” in Buena Vista’s new film, Wild Hogs, without the club’s permission. The movie stars John Travolta and Tim Allen as middle-aged bikers looking for action. Apparently, it’s the middle-aged executives who will be seeing some action in this drama.
