A local restaurant chain is suing a casino lounge, alleging parts of its logo were copied.
Lysias, the company that operates the Kirin restaurants in Vancouver, New Westminster and Richmond has filed a lawsuit claiming the ‘Kirin Room’ at Elements Casino in Surrey has infringed the restaurants trademark.
As well, the chain says the lounge is using similar or identical marks that are synonymous with the restaurant while also serving food and drinks.
The restaurant franchise says they’ve received multiple queries asking whether the two are affiliated.
None of these claims has been proven in court.
