Guns N' Roses has filed a lawsuit against a Texas gun store using the same name.
The band accused Texas Guns And Roses of trademark infringement in legal documents obtained by Fox News Digital.
"Defendant has used in commerce, without GNR’s permission or authorization, the GUNS N’ ROSES mark and trade name or marks and trade names confusingly similar thereto – specifically, Defendant’s Marks – in a manner that is likely to cause confusion with respect to the source and origin of Defendant’s goods and services, and is likely to cause confusion or mistake and to deceive purchasers as to GNR’s affiliation, connection, or association with, or approval or sponsorship of, Defendant, its business, and/or its goods and services," the lawsuit read.
Texas Guns And Roses registered its trademark in 2016, according to People magazine. The store originally applied for the trademark in 2014.
