NFL Sues Restaurant for Punny Sign
OAKLAND, CALI- Two Oakland icons are in the middle of a legal dispute. One has the name Raiders. The other has the name Nation's Giant Hamburgers.
The NFL and the Oakland Raiders doesn't want Nations to use their "Raid A Nation's" campaign, saying it's too close to the phrase "Raider Nation". The problem started with the debut of a billboard near the Coliseum that shows a cheeseburger and reads, "When Hunger Hits Raid a Nation's."
The team claims the billboard implies that Nation’s has a partnership with the football franchise and they do not. They call the billboard "ambush" advertising. The Raiders want to be compensated for trademark infringement, false advertising and unfair competition
