Weekdays 2:00pm - 7:00pm

You can't possibly list influential women and not have Oprah on it! Dubbed the "Queen of All Media," she was the richest African-American of the 20th century, was once the world's only black billionaire and the greatest black philanthropist in U.S. history. By 2007, she was often ranked as the most influential woman in the world.

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)

  • George Harrison-My Sweet Lord

    The writers of He’s So Fine (sung by The Chiffons) felt George Harrison, stole the melody for his smash hit My Sweet Lord. A court agreed and Harrison had to pay much of the royalties to the writers. George was confused because he felt his song came to him from divine intervention.
