NYC Triathlon v. NYC Tri Club
POSTED: 3/10/10 10:31 AM

Did anybody see this article in the NYT today about the court case involving the NYC Triathlon (the race) v. the NYC Triathlon Club. What was in dispute was who owns the rights to the term "NYC Triathlon"...looks like the judge ruled in favor of the race organization which first laid claim to the term (the club changed its name to the NYC Tri Club just this past Jan).

It's not apples-to-apples for DC Tri since our club has been around for a lot longer than the new "Washington DC Triathlon," but one of the things that struck me in the article was how lopsided the resources are between big races (which are, effectively, big business) and loal clubs (which operate on a shoe string and can't afford legal representation in most cases).

Anyway, it's an interesting read.
