Law discussion Hardtack Café Bernie Sides would win this litigation. There is not enough proof that the trademark is  the same. Also, the trademark has to be unique, and without a doubt, tied to trademark  owner. A yellow circle with red lettering is in no way specific and unique. “The term  ‘trademark’ includes any word, name, symbol, or device, or any combination thereof…  (15 U.S. Code § 1127)” The ‘rock and roll’ restaurant’s symbol would need to be a  specific symbol that is unique to them. A circle, that is yellow, and red lettering are too  generic. Bernie’s logo would have to have the exact same font and look so similar that  makes other people think of the ‘rock and roll’ restaurant. There is just not enough  standing for a litigation. Also, I think “Hardtack Caf é ” could be argued that it is in no way connected to the rock and roll restaurant name. Hardtack is a legitimate military word

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
