Santa Cruz pulls 'Surf City' shirts

HUNTINGTON BEACH (KABC) That city has been involved in a long legal dispute with a Santa Cruz souvenir store which had been selling T-shirts identifying Santa Cruz as Surf City.

The Huntington Beach Visitors Bureau had registered Surf City as a trademark back in 2006. The two sides have now reached a settlement with the Santa Cruz store agreeing to stop selling the shirts.

Just for the record, Jan of "Jan and Dean", who co-wrote the song "Surf City" with the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, says the song is about Huntington Beach.
