Politico Squashes “Politica”

First ePolitico came…then disappeared.

And now this…A letter From the publisher of “La Politica”:

    Dear Reader:

    Faced with a trademark legal challenge and protracted litigation by the publishers of the newspaper and website “Politico,” we have reluctantly chosen to change the name of our publication, from “La Politica” to “CandidatoUSA.”

    The publishers of Politico — launched in January by Washington D.C.-based Allbritton Communications, also owners of seven ABC television affiliates and three other news channel outlets — claim La Politica infringes on their trademark.
