Settlement allows NJ baker use of 'Cake Boss' name

The Learning Channel's "Cake Boss" won't have to change his name after all.

An agreement has been reached between a Seattle software company and cable channel, which airs the reality series "Cake Boss" featuring Carlo's City Hall Bakery in Hoboken, N.J.

A federal judge in Washington state had temporarily barred the show from using the name. Masters Software of Seattle has been selling business software for bakery owners called CakeBoss since 2007, before the reality show went on the air.

An attorney for Masters says that under an agreement between the parties, "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro can use the name on the show and Masters can still use it for its software and other items.
