So when is a Subway a Subway (TM)?

One of the latest lawsuits out of Vegas has nothing to do with gambling, skin shows or even entertainment.

It has to do with subs. The kind you eat.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Gevork Boyadzhyan opened up a sandwich shop in Las Vegas and called it Subway Avenue.

As you might imagine, the owners of the Subway chain of sandwich shops, Doctor’s Associates Inc., were none too amused. They filed suit in U.S. District Court for trademark infringement and cybersquatting (because of the potential confusion about the name).

So now Subway Avenue has reportedly become Sub Avenue.

It’s Vegas, Baby.
