Village Voice Sues Yelp for Using “Best of”

By: Jeff John Roberts | paidContent.org

The publisher of one-time counter-culture icon The Village Voice is expanding its legal campaign to own the phrase “best of.” Popular user review site Yelp is its latest target.  

Do you want to publish your ideas for “the best of San Francisco” or the “best of Seattle?” Well, the publisher of the Village Voice says you can’t because “best of” is a trademark that belongs exclusively to its group of alternative weeklies.
