Atlanta non-profit sues Intel Corp. for alleged trademark infringement

An Atlanta non-profit is suing computer chip maker Intel Corp. in federal court over trademark infringement. In its 38-page filing in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, the Creatives Community Housing Project Inc., says it promotes the metro area's arts community under what it calls the Creatives Project. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, says Intel's joint venture with Vice, called the Creators Project, "hijacked" the Atlanta group's "plan, name and logo." Chuck Mulloy, an Intel spokesman, said the company denies the charges and will fight them in court. The first hearing in the case is scheduled for Aug. 24 before Judge Timothy C. Batten Sr.
