In Orlando, Florida, city attorneys went after Paul Russo, the owner of NYPD Pizza—a restaurant that has a similar name and look as the New York Police Department.
In 2008, Russo agreed to have disclaimers on every item with the NYPD shield logo on it—the disclaimers had to state that the restaurant was not linked to the department in any way whatsoever.
However, according to a Law Department source, these disclaimers were too small and “virtually invisible” when put up against a darker background.
