Dunder Mifflin and NBC Universal Trademark-Infringement Lawsuit

Takeaway: NBC Universal filed a lawsuit related to its show “The Office.”

NBC Universal is suing a company it calls a “trademark squatter” for the alleged fraudulent trademark registration of “Dunder Mifflin,” the name of the fictional paper company featured in its distinguished show, “The Office.”

According to the lawsuit, the defendants registered the “Dunder Mifflin” name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in an effort to sell hoodies, shirts, jackets and other apparel. NBC Universal says it tried to register the faux company’s name in 2020, but its application was rejected.
