Friday Factoid 3.7.14

clifbar_3barsLast month, Kind Healthy Snacks (the maker of KIND nutrition bars) sued Clif Bar & Company in federal court to prevent Clif from releasing its MOJO snack bars.  The lawsuit claims that Clif’s use of a rectangular transparent window, horizontal stripe and color pattern in the packaging for its MOJO bars (which are similar to the packaging used by Kind on its bars) constitute trade dress infringement, unfair competition and deceptive trade practices.
