Wow, I guess SDCC might have had more of a case than I thought, if you actually assumed that. I assumed the opposite, that they were just comic conventions using the logical generic term for such.

Some conventions WERE affiliated, but most were not.

(More are affiliated now than used to be, I think, as I believe that SDCC, in an attempt to bolster their claims in the suit, offered affiliation free of charge to some other Comic Cons, in return for those cons acknowledging that SDCC had a right to the term. That happened here in Portland, anyway.)
