Florida-based Jersey Boardwalk Pizza has received a cease-and desist notice from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority for the pizza chain logo’s resemblance to the Garden State Parkway marker.
According to the New Jersey Law Journal, the turnpike authority claims service marker infringement, unfair competition and federal service mark dilution. The suit also wants the pizza company to turn over all logo-branded merchandise and molds and plates used to reproduce the logo.
