Popular music individual Kid Rock has prevailed in the Sixth Circuit appeal of a District Court ruling dismissing the lawsuit against him that sought to prevent him from using the “Top Dog” trademark. The Circuit Court agreed that the plaintiff, a former business partner, had abandoned the mark by not using it for over a decade.
That was the good news. The bad news — for Mr. Rock — is that the performer, who is evidently something of a rough-edged fellow, appears to have been canned as a prospective performer of whatever art or science he performs, at the second inauguration of the Top Dog himself, whom the Kid evidently supported for reelection.
If true, this won’t please Jim at RightThoughts! But perhaps there’s something to be said for maintaining some degree of gentility at the foremost social event in the country, what? It’s not as if he has trouble getting dates, from what one reads in the penny dreadfuls.
