NFL Has Beef With Burger Chain
Lawsuit filed over Nation's Giant Hamburgers over "Raid A Nation's" ads.
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.
