Does it?

Well damn, I guess I shouldn't trust what my dad was telling me 25 years ago at the forum :S

I always thought it stood for habitant. But still, it's a name that has been associated with the brand for decades, it's also present on a lot merchandise, so yes it's copyrighted and rightly so.

Is the word "Habs" trademark? Is there anyproof that the "Habs" brand is linked with the "Canadien" brand? In really simple terms, does Habs infer Canadiens?

As a friend suggested, looks like Basha wants its customers to foot the bill: they've raised their prices.

He's getting less sympathetic by the hour.

I honestly think it looks awesome

I understand the habs (and their assoc.) pov though...

That is definately a right they do have to pay for (to put the logo, jersey & probably the 'go habs go', because of # 1 & 2.)

After seeing the picture of the sign I can see the NHL's point. This does seem to be though to be a situation that would first call for a polite and friendly "cease and desist" letter rather than a going for damages. They probably lose more from the bad optics of the situation than they gain.

wow, looking at the size and location of that picture, they completely deserve it.

Proof in point that people who make shawarmas for a living should keep the marketing and legal stuff to professionals.
