Who can use the Comic Con name?

That's at the heart of a budding legal dispute between San Diego Comic-Con, the nation's largest comic book convention, and Salt Lake Comic Con, which drew record crowds to its debut weekend last year.

On Tuesday, Salt Lake Comic Con co-founder Bryan Brandenburg, Tribune reporter Michael McFall and others join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to discuss the Comic Con trademark tussle and the legal definition of what's in a name.
