Jay-Z

In the words of Ike Turner, “the name stays at home!!!” LOL…[lastfm]Jay-Z [/lastfm]is ready to bring the ether to Boston Red Sox baseball player, Brain Ortiz after he named his club in the Dominican Republic The 40/40 Club.  WOW!

[lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] and his business partner accuse Ortiz of trading on the fame, value and goodwill of their name through his club Forty/Forty and its website, http://www.fortyforty.net, which they say has caused their business “marketplace confusion and damage,” according to their lawsuit.  Furthermore, the lawsuit alleges that Ortiz was “full aware of the Manhattan 40/40 Club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions long before he opened his infringing Forty/Forty Club,” said the lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court.

Let’s see how this plays out in court.
