Who Dat nation triumphs as NFL settles trademark lawuit



Full Story Nola.Com


Who Dat may belong to the people again soon enough. The NFL announced Saturday that it has reached a settlement on behalf of itself and the New Orleans Saints with Who Dat?, Inc., a company that had claimed to have trademarked the catchphrase, that dismisses a lawsuit over the use of "Who Dat?" on merchandise.

According to two-sentence press releases issued by the NFL and Who Dat?, Inc., owner Steve Monistere, both have agreed to make merchandise available to fans that contains both the "Who Dat?" and NFL brands. No such merchandise appeared on the NFL's website on Monday, however.

And by late Monday, two companies that sell T-shirts using the phrase and a third that wants to use the phrase as part of the name of a coffee shop and restaurant in Violet had filed motions in U.S. District Court to dismiss the remaining complaints by Who Dat?, Inc. that they, too, committed trademark infringement.
