The owner of the U.K. based airline easyJet has indicated that he plans on suing Netflix Inc. and Joe Swanberg, the creator of its anthology series “Easy,” for infringing on its trademark of the word “easy.”
In a claim form filed in September, EasyGroup Limited, which is owned and operated by Stelios Haji-Ioannou and is easyJet’s parent company, claims that Netflix and Swanberg “infringed and/or threatened infringement” of a number of European Union Trademarks with the use of the name Easy as the show title. Easy Group is seeking no more than £10,000.
