Bob Marley’s Estate Settles With Louisiana Based Chicken Chain

The legal dispute between Bob Marley’s estate and Raising Cane’s has been resolved. The issue was centered around the chicken chain’s use of the slogan “One Love,” which also happens to be the title of one of the late Jamaican reggae star’s biggest hits.

 

The Advocate reports that Todd Graves, founder and chief executive officer of Raising Cane’s, announced this week that a “mutually beneficial agreement” was reached. An attorney for Fifty-Six Hope Road Music Ltd., owned by Marley’s widow and children, said “mutually agreeable terms” led to a settlement.

Marley’s estate, 56 Hope Road, sued the restaurant last December allegeing trademark infringement for Cane’s use of “One Love” in their marketing campaign. In a counter lawsuit, Cane says they registered “One Love” with the federal government in 2005. A legal expert familiar with the case  indicates the settlement likely allows Cane’s to keep using “One Love,” in exchange for a payment going to the Marley estate.
