Eagles Sue Hotel California over TM Infringement


“Hotel California”, perhaps the most popular song of US rock band Eagles, is at the centre of a dispute between the band and a hotel. In a trademark claim filed at the US District Court for the Central District of California on May 1, Eagles alleged that a hotel in Todos Santos, Mexico, infringed the mark ‘Hotel California’. According to the band, the hotel has led consumers to believe that it’s associated with Eagles and that it “served as the inspiration for the lyrics in ‘Hotel California’”.
