Goodbye Ruby Tuesdays? Broke Wollongong band in US restaurant $2m lawsuit

Guitarist Shaun Snider received a notice of infringement from the San Diego-based law firm Mintz Levin last month, calling on the band to transfer its web domain to “our client” and “compensate Ruby Tuesday for past sales”.

“While many artists pay tribute to other artists through imitation, when it comes to imitating famous trademarks, only Ruby Tuesday is entitled to the goodwill of its mark,” the letter read.

“The nature of trademark is that you’re trying to sell something similar under the guise that it’s [the same thing],” he said.

“It’s ridiculous that someone would rock up to a gig in Wollongong under the guise that they were going to get a burger. That’s what they’re trying to sue us over. It’s just that silly."
