'Who Dat?' trademark lawsuit settled
 
NEW ORLEANS — Settlements have resolved a Louisiana recording company's trademark claims against two T-shirt vendors and a restaurant over rights to the phrase "Who Dat?"

The phrase is part of a popular chant among New Orleans Saints fans.

Who Dat? Inc. accused Storyville Apparel, Monogram Express and Who Dat Yat Chat restaurant of violating its trademark.

The T-shirt vendors and the restaurant argued "Who Dat?" is a generic phrase.

Darleen Jacobs says the settlement allows her to use Who Dat Yat Chat as the name of a restaurant she plans to open. Who Dat? Inc. also will pay her $3,000 to cover court costs.

Mark Andrews, a lawyer for the T-shirt vendors, said terms of their settlement are confidential. However, he says his clients intend to continue selling T-shirts with the phrase.

I'll pump my fist, and everybody repeat after me:

"Who Dat say they going to hereby grant to the Licensee the non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty free, worldwide license (“License”) to use, reproduce and display the Trademarks on and within the Domain Names(s) and Web Pages solely in connection with the promotion of the product, in conformance with the policies, specifications, regulations and standards authorized or stipulated by the Licensor or are supplied to the Licensee by the Licensor and whose character and quality is not altered by the Licensee without the authorization of the Licensor.. The License is for non-commercial use of the Trademarks only and may not be used in connection with any other goods or services without the written consent of Licensor!"

Meh. Just doesn't roll off the tongue, now does it.
