On 23 November, CCI and Salt Lake Comic Con will meet in a judge's chambers to discuss a possible settlement.
How likely is this settlement? According to Salt Lake Comic Con's founder Bryan Brandenburg: "We're confident that the nature of the concessions and details of the settlement with make things better for our fans.... We're also confident that one of the outcomes of this is that our relationship with San Diego Comic-Con is going to be greatly improved and that we're going to be able to cooperate moving forward."
SDCC's attorney Peter Hahn: "It's going to have to be on terms that are acceptable to San Diego."
So... a licensing agreement? I can't imagine SLCC going home with its tail between its legs and amputating the "Comic Con" part of its name. But we'll find out soon enough.
