Clint Eastwood Sues Furniture Company For Using His Name Without His Permission

Clint Eastwood sues furniture store

Wanna pick a fight with one of Hollywood's most legendary leading men? Then start naming products "Clint" or "Eastwood"!

Actor and director Clint Eastwood has filed a lawsuit against a company called Evofurniture and website Inmod.com for using his name to sell entertainment centers, ottomans and chairs.

In court documents filed in El Lay last week, lawyers claim that the businesses "are continuing to use Mr. Eastwood's name, identity and persona for the purpose of attracting attention to the infringing products…." Here are two examples of product descriptions that caught Clint's eyes:

"When you're invited into a person's home, you get to see the good, the bad and the ugly. When visitors come to your home, the Clint 47” Entertainment Center makes your family room alone look like you live in a perfect world of a million dollar baby"

"Whether your favorite movies are westerns from the 1970s or dramas from the 2000s, you need a comfortably stylish place to hang out and watch them. If you're planning on having friends over for Dirty Harry marathons, then you definitely need something hip and modern. What you need is the Clint 71” Entertainment Center."

Since the companies in question didn't bother to ask J. Edgar director for his permission, he's suing for a permanent injunction against the use of his name, image and other rights of publicity, as well as unspecified damages.

Would U be more encouraged to buy furniture if it was named after a celebrity like Clint Eastwood?

    Re: MR Pete – Thats one of the problems with this country now, "just letting things go" if they didn,t get his permission then more power to him.
