Salt Lake Comic Con and San Diego Comic-Con might settle their trademark dispute to avoid it winding up before a jury.
On Wednesday, a conference was scheduled between representatives of the two comic book conventions to talk, off the record, about the possibility of a settlement.
The conference is scheduled for Oct. 27 in San Diego, Calif.
The behemoth San Diego Comic-Con sued the burgeoning Salt Lake Comic Con on Aug. 7 in Southern California's U.S. District Court, claiming that the names are too similar. As San Diego sees it, people might be confused into thinking the two events are affiliated.
