An iconic New York City pizza place that ran into copyright trouble is getting a name change.

Famous Ray's Pizza, at Sixth Avenue and West 11th Street in Greenwich Village, was shuttered back in October after the owners were sued by Famous Original Ray's Pizza for copyright infringement.

Now, Famous Original Ray's says it is taking over the location and opening one of its franchises there in the coming months.
