The Oakland Raiders have filed a lawsuit against the Nations Giant Hamburgers. The reason for this is a billboard of the hamburger chain with the slogan Rain a Nation. A clear infringement of the trademark rights of Oakland Raiders, according to the Raiders.
Is Oakland Raiders overacting a bit? Well no, if you know the circumstances of the case: the billboard is just outside the stadium of the Oakland Raiders, the black and silver colors of the Raiders are the main colors on the billboard and the hamburger cartoon wears an eye patch, like the mascot of the raiders! This wink has not been well appreciated by the Raider!
