Bob Marley Heirs Sue Raising Cane’s
The heirs of the late reggae singer Bob Marley have filed suit against Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers. The Advocate reports Marley's widow, and children allege the Baton Rouge based chain is infringing upon Marley's "One Love" trademark. Fifty Six Hope Road filed the suit in Massachusetts Federal court. The suit seeks to stop the fast food chain's use of the "One Love" trademark and damages of up to three times the damages Marley's heirs claim to have suffered.
"One Love" was one of Marley's best known songs, recorded in 1965, and later included on the Wailers album "Exodus" in 1977. Fifty Six Hope Road licensed the Trademark in 1991.
