Everyone wants a piece of the global Oprah empire. But you can’t have her logo.
Oprah Says NO “O”
From the Hollywood Insider, a podcaster producing a podcast, about Oprah, is using her trademark O logo, without the stars permission:
Harpo Inc., which owns her trademarks, carefully vets any licensing opportunity. Now it’s taking a podcasting duo to court over their Oprahdemics podcast.
Harpo, Oprah’s company (also Oprah, backwards) as you see does not want money. Also, the suit does not ask for control of the show’s content. Orpah reportedly doesn’t mind mind if the show talks about her. Winfrey’s main beef? Using her logo misleads the public, alluding that she is involved with the podcast.
If you want a piece of the global Oprah empire, you need to ask the emperor. See more challenges with intellectual property below. (from Findlaw.com)
