PepsiCo has emerged victorious in its legal battle against the popular Russian pop group, Little Big, over the use of the name Little Big Acts for a line of chips and snacks in what has been a long and contentious lawsuit. Little Big voiced concerns that the use of the name could lead to confusion among fans of the group, who have achieved immense popularity across the European continent. Nonetheless, the EU Intellectual Property Agency rejected the group’s demand that PepsiCo be banned from using the name, citing Little Big’s lack of popularity in EU countries as the reason for its verdict.
The verdict comes as a setback for Little Big, who have built a triumphant career based on their energetic performances and captivating music. The group’s members vigorously argued that the use of the name Little Big Acts would dilute the brand and cause confusion among fans, particularly in countries where they have a massive following. Despite their efforts, the authorities granted PepsiCo the right to use the name for its snack line. PepsiCo has not yet commented on the ruling, but market analysts predict that the company will push forward with its plans to launch the Little Big Acts brand imminently.
The legal battle has underscored the intricacies of copyright and trademark law in contemporary times, as well as the trials that artists and creators face in safeguarding their intellectual property in an era of globalized commerce and the widespread use of social media. For Little Big, the outcome is not favorable, but the group remains staunch in the face of adversity. With a slew of hits and a devoted fan base, the band will recover from this blow and continue producing high-energy music that has earned them praise and accolades worldwide.
