Children's book publisher Chooseco filed a lawsuit against Netflix on Friday for trademark infringement over the use of "choose your own adventure" in its interactive movie, "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch."




The lawsuit claimed that the "grim content" and "dark and violent themes" of "Bandersnatch" "tarnishes" the "choose your own adventure" trademark.




The suit alleged Netflix pursued a license in 2016, but never received it after ongoing negotiations over a number of years.



Netflix's new interactive "Black Mirror" movie, "Bandersnatch," has led to a lawsuit.
Chooseco, the children's book publisher that owns the trademark to "choose your own adventure," filed a lawsuit against the streaming giant in Vermont on Friday alleging trademark infringement, unfair competition, false designation of origin, and dilution.
The company is seeking $25 million in damages or Netflix's profits from "Bandersnatch," whatever is greater, as well as attorney fees and costs.
