It's a broken system and frivolous trademark suits abound. Some examples here:

Yeah, it really has gotten out of hand. The most egregious I can think of in recent history was Magic Hat brewery going after a Kentucky brewer whose can design "infringed" on the design of the MH #9 logo.

Sorry for the loss of your friend.

Welcome to US trademark law. It grants things it shouldn't (I've love to see the city of Roubaix sue Specialized) and then forces you as the holder to sue, sue, sue or someone else can get the mark.

I have a friend working on this documentary:

http://lancesbrewerytour.com/

He told me they were going to VT to hit some of the breweries and I filled him in on the Magic Hat suit. My buddy had a sit-down with the original owners of MH and they were really down about how the new holding company treated West Sixth.

Has the city registered the name in the US as a trademark in relation to the bicycle business

Looks to be an excellent project and very cool documentary.
