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 (€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 € thingies, little Guinness harps or something?) instead of real American dollars!
