lindsay lohan sue grand theft auto v likeness

Lindsay Lohan is suing the creators of the Grand Theft Auto video game franchise claiming that the fifth and latest installment used her image and made her into a character without her permission!

Why that's as morally ambiguous as using cheat codes!

Lilo filed the lawsuit today in Liberty CIty…uh, we mean, Manhattan against Take-Two Interactive Software Inc., who has declined to comment!

Lindsay in her lawsuit that Lacey Jonas is definitely a reference to her, that her image, voice, and clothing styles are shown, and that it features the Chateau Marmont hotel, which was once her old stomping grounds.

We'll see how this case proceeds!

Courtney Love Loses Kurt Cobain's Image To Frances Bean

Courtney Love Loses Rights To Frances

Well, sounds like Courtney Love’s rights to her late husband’s estate are dwindling down even more.

Reportedly, Courtney and Kurt Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, has recently obtained the rights to her dad’s name, likeness and appearance.

Back in 2010, Love received a $2.75 million loan from Frances’ trust fund and still has yet to pay it back.

Recent documents reveal that until Love pays back the loan, she will be unable to profit off of Kurt’s publicity rights.

The docs also show that

miley sex doll lawsuit

Looks like Miley does NOT want people having sex with her likeness. Can you blame her?

According to reports, Miley Cyrus is suing Pipedream Productions for using her likeness with their Finally Mylie! Love Doll.

Mileybird is suing the company for "defamation of character," and she's seeking "an unspecified sum in damages and suspension of the doll's sales."

Here's how the description of the $25 doll reads:

“She’s had years of practice speaking into the mic, and now she’s ready for yours. Just add air and this teen-queen pole-dancing princess comes of age right before your own eyes. Daddy’s little stoner is ready for you to bone her!”

We can def see where this would creep her out A LOT.

Guess we'll see if she's able to get these sex dolls off of shelves. Good luck, Miley!

Do U think Miley's got a solid case here?

Team LiLo Considering Lawsuit Against E*Trade Lindsay-Inspired Movie

team-lilo-considering-pursuing-legal-action-against-producers-of-move-dogs-in-pocketbooks-for-using-lindsay-lohans-likeness-without-permission

You don't mess with Lindsay's likeness!

As we mentioned yesterday, Lindsay Lohan Lydia Hearst is set to star in an upcoming movie Dogs in Pocketbooks, which is quite obviously based on LiLo's life.

Hearst is set to play "a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media."

As a result, Team LiLo is considering pursuing legal action against the film's producers.

Here's what Dina Lohan had to say about the potential lawsuit:

"[The new movie] is definitely based on Lindsay's likeness. We have a very strong case. It's shadowing E*TRADE" — referring to Lohan's suit against the online brokerage firm which produced a commercial featuring a baby Lindsay."

Lohan family lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, continued:

"They are again using her likeness without her being compensated. Not only that but they are advertising the fact that they are using her likeness."

Looks like they've got a case here. Guess we'll see if the producers' pocketbooks are big enough to keep Dogs in Pocketbooks moving forward.

Warner Bros. Sues Condom Company For Branding Their Product After Harry Potter!

wenn5321825jb.jpg

Ha! We guess there's one item out there that Warner Brothers doesn't want to smack with the Harry Potter franchise logo!

The studio behind the smash films has instead reportedly sued a Swiss brand of condoms, because they're called Harry Popper!

Harry Popper?! LOLs!

The product's image even depicts a condom wearing glasses and holding a wand!

HA HA HA HA!

A lawyer for Warner Brothers claims:

"The image of my client is in danger."

Eh! Those characters were mad hormonal by the end of the series, anyway! They probably could have used some Harry Poppers, themselves! LOLs!

Unless there's some magic wizarding technique that they employ instead of using protection!

Thoughts??
