Trademark lawsuit filed over EA Sports Active

Active Network Inc. has filed a trademark infringement suit against Electronic Arts over the EA Sports Active series. IGN obtained a copy of the lawsuit [PDF link] wherein Active Network claims EA is infringing on its "Active" trademarks, which -- as you must already know -- are "famous, arbitrary, and highly distinctive, and are recognized by the public," according to the suit. You are familiar with the famous Active Network, aren't you?

EA declined to comment on the adjective-packed lawsuit.
