Escobar, Inc. is seeking $10,000,000 in damages for the restaurant’s use of its trademarks including the image and likeness of the late Pablo Escobar, according to court documents obtained Thursday by What Now Atlanta (WNA).

Roberto Escobar, the brother of the deceased Colombian drug lord, owns the company which holds 100+ copyrights in the U.S. and 30 trademarks.

The suit was filed on June 17, 2020, with the U.S. District Court Central District of California.

Reps for Escobar Restaurant, which is situated in Castleberry Hill at 327 Peters St SW, did not immediately respond to WNA’s request for comment Thursday.

You would think that a business would check to see if they’re going to violate any I.P. before opening. Oh well! This place seems to be in constant trouble. I can’t see it lasting much longer

Maybe Escobar Inc should open a restaurant and name it 2 Chains.

And should this restaurant be allowed to profit off of the criminal’s name and likeness?

I’m tired of these rappers giving free publicity to drug dealers and designers. They shout out Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton giving them free publicity. They praise and uphold vicious criminals like Pablo Escobar and Scarface’s Tony Montana. This is their fault for not checking copyright and trying to profit from the legacy of one of the most evil drug terrorist Columbia had ever seen!
