We have a "Bono's" here in town, but it's a cheap Italian place. The type of people that work there and eat there don't look like the type that would have a clue who Bono is. And like arw said, I'm sure they pronounce it "boh-no's".

Bonos name is trademarked or copyrighted.

I know I read it somewhere.

Big Grin I think someone copyrighted the letter E already (see E! network)

And Bono was born WHEN? 1960.


I just do not understand the dementia that goes through certain U2 fans heads. Seriously.

OMG, i think really did trademark his name! you can do free trademark searches on the US Patent and Trademark office website. i did a search for "Bono" and got 43 results.


this one caught my eye, since it's registered to "Paul Hewson" and "Principle Managment"- it was just registered on August 15, 2006:
http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield...te=bgfma6.2.21



and for those who are interested, here's a link to all 43 results for the word "Bono":

again...Lawyers

It looks like his name is TM'd for music and merch related items. Makes perfect sense.

As for BBQ.............

i had no idea bono had officially trademarked his name, so that came as a total shock to me. but i agree with zoney that it's highly unlikely that trademark infringement would be found in this case particularly because the name is being used in 2 totally different industries (and therefore people not likely to be confused).

dude, this thread reminds me of a law school exam question

i'm going back to PLEBA now...
