Volcom Stone vs Roc Nation Diamond

One of my favorite surf brands is suing one of my favorite artists in a trademark infringement lawsuit.

According to the complaint, Roc Nation’s logo is too close to their own, which they have been using in trade since 1991. . . Additionally, Volcom claims the logo could create confusion in the marketplace, since their label Volcom Entertainment, also uses a similar, registered trademark. . . “While Roc Nation appears to have initially used the diamond only in combination with the words ‘Roc Nation’ it is now using the diamond logo on its own, causing a likelihood of confusion among consumers,” Volcom’s complaint reads.

I’m not sure where I stand on this argument. I understand that Volcom has been around and been using the stone to represent their company since 1991 but I’m not sure if they look close enough to warrant a lawsuit. It will be interesting to see what comes of this. In the meantime, let us know what you think about it in the poll below.
