Two Men And A Lawsuit

Well, actually, it's one guy and a lawsuit.

Popular franchisor Two Men and a Truck/International, Inc. recently filed suit against an individual in Raleigh, NC doing business as "Furniture Cab" over the use of the "Two Men and Truck" name in his Internet advertising (shown below). The suit was filed in the Eastern District of North Carolina. The suit is a useful reminder that trademark law covers services as well as goods. In some circumstances, a company will want a registration covering goods that it offers, and a registration on the same mark for services that it offers.
