SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The organizers of Salt Lake Comic Con and San Diego Comic-Con may be on the verge of resolving an ongoing name-trademark dispute.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that attorneys for the two pop-culture conventions asked a federal judge to give them more time to work on a possible agreement on name rights.

Both parties will meet with the magistrate judge on Wednesday in San Diego.

San Diego Comic-Con, considered the flagship of the popular convention circuit, filed a trademark violation lawsuit against the Salt Lake convention in August 2014.

San Diego's organizers say they have legal ownership of the term "comic con" in all its forms.

However, the convention only owns the rights to "comic-con" with a hyphen.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark office is currently withholding judgment.
