Recently Metromix’s local operation announced nominations for a "Best of Cincinnati" contest. D'oh! As everyone knows, there is only one BEST OF CINCINNATI®: the wildly popular promotion run by CityBeat for the past 13 years. While we're humored by their rip-off, we've alerted Metromix to their infringement on our BEST OF CINCINNATI federal trademark and as a result they've altered their Web site and promotional materials.
Look for the ballot for the 14th annual BEST OF CINCINNATI readers poll this weekend at www.citybeat.com and www.bestofcincinnati.com. You'll again be able to choose your favorites in more than 200 categories covering local restaurants, goods & services, nightlife, the arts, neighborhoods, the media, personalities, outdoors and sports. Winners will be published in the huge BEST OF CINCINNATI issue on March 31.
Thanks for your ongoing support for the real BEST OF CINCINNATI and for CityBeat. Accept no substitute!
