Montreal World Cup Organizer Wins Lawsuit
Épreuves de la Coupe du monde Cycliste Féminine, organizers of the Montreal Women's World Cup and Le Tour du Grand Montreal, announced today that they have successfully defended their use of the name Le Tour du Grand Montreal from a legal challenge by Vélo Québec.
Vélo Québec had argued that the name Le Tour du Grand Montreal was too close that of their own Le Tour de l'Ile de Montréal. The Québec Superior Court judge before whom the case was argued (Honourable Brian Riordan) rejected the Vélo Québec claim, stating that it was "difficult to imagine" that the public would be confused by the two names (ie, could not differentiate between them).
