X Social Media, LLC v. X Corp.

Improved Summary: X Corp, previously known as Twitter and currently under the ownership of Elon Musk, faces a lawsuit from X Social Media, a legal-marketing firm. The Florida-based agency, renowned for its expertise in mass-tort litigation, argues that X Corp's rebranding, which includes the use of "X", could lead to consumer confusion. X Social Media, which has held the trademark for its name since 2016, asserts that this rebranding has negatively impacted its revenue. The firm is not only seeking a court injunction to prohibit X Corp from using the "X" in its name but also demands unspecified financial compensation for the alleged damages.
