Things are boiling over in the restaurant industry as Gordon Ramsay has applied to register a trade mark for ‘The Spotted Pig’ in the UK covering various food products and, importantly, restaurant services.
As readers might know, The Spotted Pig is a Michelin starred restaurant in New York City run by fellow Brit chef April Bloomfield, and boasts celebrity co-owners Jay-Z and Bono. The Spotted Pig is a hit in NYC serving ‘seasonal British and Italian, using local ingredients where possible’ and has been open since 2004.
At the start of this year, Jay-Z and Beyoncé sought to register their daughter’s name – Blue Ivy Carter – as a trade mark to provide them with the sole right to use the name for a whole variety of products, from basketballs and teething rings, to hair care products and sound recordings. The application was made in name of BGK Trademark Holding, a company whose sole member is Beyoncé.
