Joustin' Beaver iTunes App Creators Are Suing Justin Bieber!

justin bieber legal drama round two

Justin's legal drama continues!

To recap - last week, Justin Bieber sent a cease and desist letter to video game makers RC3 - the company responsible for an iTunes app/game called Joustin' Beaver.

At the time, we were hearing that Justin did NOT want the game using his likeness, and his lawyers were threatening to take RC3 to court!

NOW, we've learned that the Joustin' Beaver creators are filing a lawsuit against The Biebs, claiming that they're NOT violating any laws by making fun of him in their game!

The company is saying that their game is a "parody," which should be protected by the First Amendment in the Constitution.

Should be interesting to see how this all plays out! We'd expect to hear more soon!

Team Bieber…or Team Beaver???

Biebs Slaps Phone App Maker With Cease And Desist Letter For Using His Likeness…As A Beaver!

justin-bieber-doesnt-want-his-likeness-used-in-video-game-web.jpg

Biebs does not like it when you compare him to a beaver!

Justin Bieber has slapped video game maker RC3 with a cease and desist letter after they created a game called Joustin' Beaver.

The point of the game is getting Beaver to sign "Otter-graphs" while avoiding the "Phot-Hogs" along the way.

We are not making this up!

Apparently, Biebs doesn't want the game using his likeness and his lawyers are willing to take RC3 to court.

Sad. Joustin' Beaver has a iTunes app rating of five stars!

Warner Bros. To The Ma-Sheen: Stop Using Two And A Half Men Pics!!!

warner-bros-gives-charlie-sheen-a-cease-and-desist-letter-web.jpg

Looks like Charlie Sheen and Warner Bros. still got a little beef.

The mega studio has slapped the warlock with a cease and desist letter, asking Charlie to stop using Two and a Half Men photos for his benefit.

The Ma-Sheen has been using the photos to promote his new FX show, Anger Management.

It's cool. We think Charlie will manage without using the photos! He's the Ma-Sheen!

Girls Gone Wild Creator Joe Francis Threatens Madonna With Legal Action Over Trademark Usage In New Song!

joe-francis-threatens-madonna-with-legal-action-over-trademark-usage-in-new-song

Uh-oh! This is not good!

Joe Francis, who created the Girls Gone Wild series, has slapped Madonna with a cease-and-desist letter over the usage of his franchise name as a title of one her new songs on MDNA, and is threatening legal action if she does not comply to certain terms!

According to the letter, which asserts that the pop icon is trying to get a "free ride on the valuable consumer goodwill and brand recognition" of the Girls Gone Wild trademark, she must negotiate a licensing agreement for it usage, holding accountable the number of times she's already used it, and she must not perform the song during the Super Bowl halftime show!

What?! That last part seems seriously ridiculous!

Apparently, Madge has to answer by 5pm PST today before legal action is taken.

What do U think? Does Joe have a case?

Derek Lam Vs. Ivanka Trump

derek-lam-accuses-ivanka-trump-of-copying-wedge-sandal.jpg

Ivanka Trump is a copycat! At least that's what Derek Lam is saying.

The designer fired off a cease and desist letter to the Donald's daughter and her shoe licensee Marc Fisher Footwear demanding they remove their $150 "Cadie" wedge off the market because it's "virtually identical" to Lam's $780 Ayami" wedge sandal.

Derek Lam CEO Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann admits Ivanka probably has no idea her shoe was a copy since she works with a licensee, but they "had to protest this".

The designer's attorneys gave Trump seven days to pull the shoes and are also asking for info on past and future sales of the Cadie wedge, including accounting records of all sales.

What do U think? Is Ivanka's wedge (right) a copycat of Derek's (left)???
