Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation Key Developments

Wragges' Glee over Twentieth Century Fox High Court Win

Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co. has won a David and Goliath legal battle for comedy club operators Comic Enterprises against Twentieth Century Fox. The company could be forced to rebrand its television series Glee after the High Court found that the brand infringed the IP rights of Comic Enterprises' brand The Glee Club. The television and film company instructed Simmons & Simmons partner David Stone to challenge the sanctions made by the court in February (7 February 2013). In that ruling the High Court found that Twentieth Century Fox had infringed Comic Enterprises' trademark but had not been guilty of passing off. Stone instructed IP heavyweight 11 South Square's Henry Carr QC to lead the battle for the firm company. He faced Three New Square's Douglas Campbell who was instructed by Jones. According to the judgment, Carr contended that to force the defendant to change the brand, would not be fair or equitable. It would be costly and complex. It would not be effective at dealing with the harm [.] and would be disproportionate thereto.

20th Century Fox Plans to Build $3.5-Billion S. Korea Theme Park

20th Century Fox announced plans to build one in South Korea. The announcement comes only seven months after the entertainment company broke ground on a 25-acre theme park in Malaysia. The new 75-acre theme park will be part of the 700-acre Ungdong Entertainment Complex in Changwon City, on the southeastern coast of South Korea, 20th Century Fox said. The company is reportedly planning to invest about $3.5 billion to complete the project by 2018. 20th Century Fox World Korea will be operated by Village Roadshow Ltd. of Australia. Representatives for 20th Century Fox said it was too early to say what type of attractions will be included in the park. 20th Century Fox plans to open its $300-million Malaysia park in 2016. The park will feature more than 25 rides and attractions with characters and story lines from 20th Century Fox's films, including Ice Age, Rio, Night at the Museum and Alien vs. Predator.
