Sorry, NJ-ers. GTL is a juggernaut!

Snooki & JWoww are going back to the beach this Summer to film another season of their eponymous MTV show, despite legal attempts from New Jersey locals to keep their hood controversy-free.

A request for an injunction made by residents of Pelican Island, the location for the house in Snooki & JWoww, was denied this week in the face of a lot of local support.

Guess judges love Jersey Shore, TOO!

Snooks seems especially excited to be back in business, tweeting this weekend:

Occupy L.A. Seeking Federal Court Injunction To Stop Eviction From Campsites…And Why Twilight Is To Blame!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikInspirationTwilight

Uh-oh! They mean business!

And they're bringing Twilight into the mess!

Although El Lay mayor Antonio Villaraigosa issued a deadline of eviction at midnight last night for the Occupy protestors currently camped outside of City Hall, it looks as though the group has retaliated - by seeking a federal court injunction to block their removal!

According to the complaint, the city's anti-camping measure is up to the "whim of the police," and want the court to address "an unconstitutional deprivation of access to a traditional public forum, the south lawn of City Hall, for First Amendment activity."

Louboutin Plans To "Fight Like Hell" Against YSL

christian-louboutin-appealing-ysl-injunction-ruling.jpg

Less than a week after a New York judge denied Christian Louboutin's request for an injunction against Yves Saint Laurent, the shoe designer is appealing the decision.

On Friday, Monsieur Louboutin's lawyer Harley Lewin filed an appeal to oppose YSL's move for summary judgment.

As of last week YSL said they were in the process of making the request for summary judgment because Judge Victor Marrero doesn't think Louboutin can prove why he needs a trademark on his shoes.

If granted, Louboutin's trademark could be canceled, which is why Lewin says his client plans to "fight like hell".

A hearing is scheduled for August 19th, so stay tuned.

Louboutin's Injunction Against YSL DENIED!

christian-louboutin-ysl-injunction-denied.jpg

Yves Saint Laurent has come out victorious in the battle of the red outsoles!

On Wednesday, a judge denied Christian Louboutin's request for a preliminary injunction against YSL because he thinks Louboutin would have a hard time proving why his shoes deserve trademark protection.

Judge Victor Marrero wrote in his ruling:

"Because in the fashion industry color serves ornamental and aesthetic functions vital to robust competition, the court finds that Louboutin is unlikely to be able to prove that its red outsole brand is entitled to trademark protection, even if it has gained enough public recognition in the market to have acquired secondary meaning."

He has a point there. Trademarking a color is kinda ridiculous.

Do U agree with the ruling???

NFL Season Dependent On Outcome Of Injunction Hearing

NFL Season Dependent On Outcome Of Injunction Hearing

America is nervous right now.

Will there be a football season or not?

It all comes down to an injunction in St. Paul, Minnesota today, which will determine whether the players get their way, or if the league will continue barring them from entering the locker rooms.

And the fans aren’t the only ones who have a lot riding on the decisions. Networks who air the games stand to lose millions if the season doesn’t happen.

Cross your fingers and hope they get this settled!

Abercrombie Sues Surf Style For Using Their Seagull Logo

hollister_e__opt.jpg

What the flock!?

Abercrombie & Fitch is suing a Florida retail chain for allegedly jacking their Hollister seagull logo.

According to the court docs filed in Miami, Surf Style used a flying seagull that was "identical, or nearly identical, and confusingly similar to A&F’s seagull mark".

Abercrombie gave them a chance to avoid a suit by sending them a cease-and-desist letter in May 2010. Surf Style made an agreement with the preppy clothing company to stop using the rat with wings in July, but never followed through.

Now, A&F is not only seeking an injunction against the basic t-shirt company, but also wants them to destroy the infringing products and pay them in monetary damages.

A lawyer for Surf Style thinks the lawsuit is ridiculous since seagulls are so closely related to the beach.

The Black Eyed Peas Sued AGAIN Over Copyright Issues!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersFergie


Wow! We've lost count how many times this has happened now!

George Clinton, a legend in funk music, is suing The Black Eyed Peas for allegedly sampling one of his songs on their track, Shut Up.

The song was first featured on their 2003 album, Elephunk, but has spawn several remixes since then, including one that appeared on the deluxe edition of The E.N.D. album. According to Clinton's lawsuit, the group used elements of George's song (Not Just) Knee Deep on this remix.

As he insists that he never granted the group permission to use the song, he's suing will.i.am and Fergie, along with Universal Music Group for copyright infringement damages and an injunction to block further sales of the remixes.

We hate to break it to them, but George does have a point. The remix does sound a lot like his funky hit.

Take a listen to George's song and The Peas remix (above) and tell us what U think? Does George have a case?
