• The Restaurant Owns It, of Course

    by  • November 12, 2009 • trademark

    When the dispute over the ownership of the name of the famous restaurant “Tavern on the Green” started, I posted a poll asking whether the restaurant or New York City owned the name. The results are in, with responses overwhelmingly in favor of the restaurant, 93% to 6% (okay, well there were only 15 votes). I’m a bit surprised, I thought it would be a little closer than that.
