PayPal v Pandora Music

PayPal launched a lawsuit against Pandora Media in New York regarding Pandora’s new logo which represents the P letter in blue color.

According to PayPal this logo is confusingly similar to the company’s own earlier logo for double P in blue color too. What’s more the company considers that its logo has “achieved significant fame and consumer recognition” and “the similarities between the logos are striking, obvious, and patently unlawful. Just like the PayPal logo, the Pandora logo is a capital P in block style, sans serif, with no counter, in the same deep-blue colour range”.

PayPal backed up its allegations with evidences that some consumers made a mistake when approaching both marks.
