ENCINITAS — Before the race even begins, a completely different, yet equally serious competition has gotten underway.

CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA — Cardiff 101 Mainstreet copyrighted the Cardiff Kook statue in 2007, when it commissioned the work. The copyright hasn’t been actively enforced, but that’s changing.
