Are the comedy clubs The Stand NYC & The Stand in Edinburgh affiliated?
February 1, 2013 11:17 AM   Subscribe

The Stand has been a long-running comedy club and Edinburgh Fringe Festival venue, first in Edinburgh, Scotland, and with later-opened branches in Glasgow and Newcastle upon Tyne. I noticed that there is now a New York City-based comedy club and restaurant called The Stand NYC. I didn't see any indication on the websites of either club that there was a connection. Is this an example of the use of a trade name in another national jurisdiction?

Answering my own question since none was forthcoming: no, there is not a business connection. Just imitation as flattery.

You should mark that the best answer!
