NEW YORK (AP) - A judge has ruled that a New York pizza shop named must make it clear it has nothing to do with a more famous pizza shop with a similar name.

A Brooklyn judge ruled Tuesday the Brooklyn-based Joe’s Pizza of the Village cannot use similar lettering or anything “confusingly similar” to Joe’s Pizza. The Daily News reports Greenwich Village-based Joe’s Pizza has been featured in multiple movies and television shows, like “Sex and the City” and “Spider-Man.”

Joe’s Pizza of the Village founder Victor Zarco previously worked at the more notable pizza shop for two decades before starting his Brooklyn pizza shop.

Zarco’s lawyers say they are satisfied with the decision. Lawyers for Joe’s Pizza could not be reached for comment.
