Case Analysis

Burger King, the national franchise, is banned from opening a restaurant
within 20 miles of Mattoon, Illinois. So, there is not a Burger King there; no
problem, right? Not so fast! In the late 1950s, Gene and Betty Hoots
trademarked the iconic name. Well, they trademarked it in Illinois at least.
When the national company decided to open a chain close by, the Hoots sued and
won their case. However, the national chain was able to keep the name Burger
King, but the Hoots were also able to keep the name in accordance with the
stipulation that the national chain could not open a store within a 20-mile
radius of the original store in Mattoon, Illinois.
