Netflix loses motion to dismiss ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ lawsuit over ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’

Netflix has officially lost its bid to dismiss a lawsuit brought on by Chooseco LLC — the company which owns the trademark rights to the popular childrens’ book series Choose Your Own Adventure.

Last January, the publisher accused the streaming giant of violating the rights to its trademark ultimately by ripping off its signature concept in the feature-length, interactive episode of the critically acclaimed Black Mirror series: Bandersnatch.

The decision to deny Netflix’s plea was made by a federal state judge in Vermont on Tuesday, meaning the legal battle will now proceed, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter (or THR).
