    IPNews® - Viacom International Inc. urged a Los Angeles judge to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Gibson Guitar Corp. for infringing a trademarked “Flying V” electric guitar, claiming that the allegedly infringing ukuleles were never sold in the United States.

Viacom, owner of the Nickelodeon television network, filed a motion to dismiss claiming the v-shaped ukuleles were manufactured in China and distributed only in Asia, Europe and South America thus there is no subject matter jurisdiction in the United States.  The ukuleles feature Viacom's character SpongeBob SquarePants.
