The New York Times has agreed to dismiss its lawsuit against Time after accusing the outlet of infringing on the Times’s name in its new digital series, Time100.
“We’re pleased to have reached this outcome, which allows Time100 Talks to coexist with TimesTalks in a way that won’t cause confusion among readers, which was our primary consideration,” a spokesperson for the Times told The Hill, referring to Time’s and The New York Times’s respective projects.
The Times agreed to dismiss the case it started in November with prejudice so the outlet cannot go after Time in the future, Yahoo Finance reported.
The lawsuit was over the name “Time100 Talks” that Time used for its new digital series that started in April. The Times alleged that was an infringement on the name “TimesTalk,” which is a series the Times has hosted since 1999.
