You'll recall about a month ago we told you about the battle between two 'Hobbits'; that is, Warner Bros. 'The Hobbit' and The Asylum's crude knock-off, 'Age of the Hobbits.' Warner Bros. filed a lawsuit against the smaller studio, known for its "mockbusters," insisting they stop the release of their slightly similarly titled movie, with the idea being that they were infringing on their 'Hobbit' trademark. Meanwhile, The Asylum was all, "What are you talking about, this is a totally different thing!"
It appears as though, if you'll forgive the analogy, in this particular case of David vs. Goliath, Goliath has most definitely won. At least for now.
