Entrepreneur magazine is at it again. (sigh)
We have never been fans of Entrepreneur magazine. Here’s one reason. Its publisher, EMI, a notorious trademark bully is now going after another victim. This time it’s tiny Nashville business incubator called the Entrepreneur Center.
In an article published in July 2011, Entrepreneur magazine spent a half-dozen paragraphs trumpeting the wisdom of Michael Burcham, the director of a Nashville business incubator called the Entrepreneur Center. Four months later, the magazine’s publisher, Entrepreneur Media Inc. (EMI), asserted that the incubator’s website infringed on the magazine’s trademark. In February 2012, EMI sued the Entrepreneur Center in federal court. According to the Tennessean newspaper, the Entrepreneur Center is suing back.
