NFL Has Beef With Burger Chain

Friday, December 9, 2011 - 3:22pm

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.
