Twentieth Century Fox could be forced to change the name of hit television series Glee in the UK after losing an Appeal Court legal battle with a British comedy club chain of the same name.
The media giant today lost its first appeal against a 2014 ruling at the High Court in London which held that Fox had infringed the trademark of Comic Enterprises Ltd who run Glee Clubs.
Fox bosses said it would be a 'disaster' if it had to change the Glee name, which is worth millions of dollars and has been expanded into a franchise that includes worldwide tours, CDs and reality television competitions.
