They’re not necessarily happy about it, but the duo who founded Liberty Lunch more than 40 years ago said Monday they don’t intend to fight plans by the owners of Stubb’s to revive the famed Austin music venue’s name.
The Stubb’s live music venue and barbecue restaurants are required to change their name as part of a settlement reached last week that put an end to a two-year trademark infringement battle in federal court. One World Foods, a separate company that makes Stubb’s-branded barbecue sauces, rubs and marinades, will continue using the Stubb’s name.
