Middle-aged bombshell blasted by trademark holder
Explosive story: Looks like some trademark trouble for an evidently fissionable material girl.
UPDATE: Resolved in a most unexplosive way:
The company claimed to own the international rights to the name, which it estimated to be worth $5.25m (â‚¬4.3m) – but has axed plans for a costly court case.
Director Ladislav Lehky says: “Madonna uses the name for pure promotional purposes. We can’t really prove that we suffer a loss from that.”
Oh, puh-lease! Merely dropping a trademark infringement suit because you “can’t really prove that [you] suffer a loss”? No wonder they use those funny symbols for their money (what are those â‚¬ thingies, little Guinness harps or something?) instead of real American dollars!
