NOW. Stapler November 20, 2010 What…?? It’s just a font… chris November 20, 2010 It’s hard to prove any copyright or trademark infringement with a name like “The Office”. It’s so vague. There were probably thousands of bars and restaurants around the country named “The Office” before the TV show. I’d argue fair use if NBC came after the owner and tell NBC to get lost and if not sue me. Matthew November 20, 2010 I don’t know about “the office”, but that thing above it that says “officetally.com” has to be a copyright violation. I would so sue them! Angie November 20, 2010 Is there anything that actually relates this place to The Office other than its name? BD November 21, 2010 There was “The Office Bar & Grill” in Scottsdale, AZ that all of a sudden changed their name to “The Mountainside Office Bar & Grill”. Clockwise November 21, 2010 There’s one in Oscoda, MI, and the best thing is that the address is 110 E Dwight St! We took a photo out front during an Office fan meet up. Ryan J. November 21, 2010 It wouldn’t be bad if it wasn’t for the fact that it uses the name, font, lower case, colors, and word placement. Hannah Smokeridge-Barr November 21, 2010 @BD – they should’ve called it the ‘Serenity by Jan Bar & Grill’… after all she was always supposedly visiting Scottsdale to visit her sister! :) chris November 22, 2010 The problem of course for any of these places if NBC or whomever did decide to go after them is that NBC has a massive legal department and would bury a small business owner in litigation. Good arguments could probably be made on both sides of the infringement issue but when you’re the little guy, a big well financed giant like NBC could well put you out of business just by bullying you around with litigation costs. I can see why from a small business owner’s perspective if NBC came to me and said change your name from The Office Bar & Grill to the Mountainside Office Bar & Grill, or we’ll bury you in legal expenses, you’d probably just go along with them. michelle November 22, 2010 Can they really sue over a font though? I mean, there are bars called The Office all over the country. My dad used to go to one in California. Which was a really clever name for a bar, until my step-mom started asking, “which one?” Nathan November 23, 2010 Still, my favorite name is Danny’s Public School. I’d like to see a homage to that. Scrantastic November 23, 2010 There was The Office bar in Scranton before the show actually started. It closed before then too.
