San Andreas is a census-designated place and the county seat of Calaveras County, California. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of 2,615. Like most towns in the region, it was originally founded during the California Gold Rush.
According to the local newspaper, the Calaveras Enterprise, the San Andreas Merchants Association has been understandably alarmed over the popularity of the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas video game, which may cause the public to associate the trademark "San Andreas" with inner-city mayhem and violence instead of a peaceful small town in the Sierra foothills. However, when they contacted Take Two Interactive, Take Two's attorneys at Blank Rome LLP explained that their client was on firm legal ground. The Association has conceded that there isn't much they can do.
