Chicago "In-N-Out" Settles Trademark Infringement Lawsuit

Don’t think you can call your place “Nicky’s In-N-Out” and include a certain familiar-looking big yellow arrow in your logo and get away with it. In-N-Out — the beloved California burger chain — has settled a trademark lawsuit against a Chicagoland copycat gyro joint.

From the OC Register:

“The agreement in place requires confidentiality. We can’t discuss it other than to say (that) the matter has been resolved amicably,” said Van Fleet, the chain’s vice president of planning and development.”

We’re sure the gyros are good and everything, but c’mon, that’s pretty blatant. Be your own restaurant, Nicky! You’re your own special, unique person.
