This is a rather interesting one. It'll be fun to see how it's adjudicated.

It was always the wisdom in This Town that Paramount owned Desilu, having bought it lock stock and Lucy reruns. Presumably whoever owns Paramount this year owns Desilu as a trademark. But this guy says he trademarked it. That should have no legal standing, but who knows? Guess we'll find out.
