The Sprinkles lawsuit against Famous Cupcakes' dot motif is denied. "Monday's motion asked U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson to order Famous to drop the dot, court filings show. Anderson denied the motion, citing problems with Sprinkles' court filing. Attorneys from Sprinkles said they plan to refile the motion after making the required corrections. Sprinkles' concentric dots were federally trademarked in April 2007, an attorney said. The lawsuit says that bakeries in the United States, Britain and Asia have imitated the design, but all stopped using it after they were contacted by Sprinkles." [CBS2; previously]
