 Cirque du Soleil - Canada's insane clown posse. By Bryan Curtis

 Las Vegas SUN: Judge rejects claim for 'cirque' name
The crux of Cirque du Soleil's argument was that its company and performances had come to be known by the moniker "cirque" and that the "cirque" brand is thus protectable under federal trademark law.
Cirque Inc. also said that the "cirque" name is a term that has preceded Cirque du Soleil by hundreds of years and has been used to describe a type of circus popularized in Europe that doesn't use animals and incorporates dance, visual arts and other art forms.
Cirque Inc. was founded in 1993, a decade after Cirque du Soleil began life in Montreal as a performance art group and the same year that Cirque du Soleil opened its first permanent show in Las Vegas at Treasure Island.

 Cirque offers to rehire gymnast with HIV   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Cirque du Soleil has offered to bring gymnast Matthew Cusick back to the stage, after protests around the country and a determination by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that it was likely that the Montreal-based company illegally discriminated against Cusick because he has HIV.
Cirque fired Cusick in April, just days before he was to begin performing in Las Vegas in acts on the Russian high bar, in which he would hang upside down and catch aerialists, and the Chinese poles, in which artists perform tricks on tall poles.
Cirque contended at the time that its decision was made for safety reasons but said Cusick was eligible for other jobs that the company deemed less risky.
