And every baby out there will be getting their lawyers to send a letter to Lady GaGa for stealing their trademark for first words spoken..GAGA
And so will the remaining band members of ‘Queen’ for stealing GaGa from the song ‘Radio GaGa’.
I just love how these inflated ego type celebrities like to think it’s all about them. It won’t stand in court. But good publicity stunt!
In the window of The Icecreamists i s a notice informing customers that “Baby Gaga breast milk ice cream” has sold out. Lawyers for Lady Gaga are accusing the shop of trademark infringement.
LONDON—Lady Gaga is not cool about a British ice cream made with human breast milk.
Lawyers for the flamboyant U.S. pop star are accusing the London shop that has been making the unusual “Baby Gaga” dessert of trademark infringement.
A letter from the law firm Mishcon de Reya calls on The Icecreamists Ltd. to cease and desist “from in any other way associating with Lady Gaga any ice cream you are offering.”
The letter accuses the shop of exploiting the Lady Gaga brand in a manner that is, “to many people, nausea-inducing.”
It gives a Wednesday deadline: “if you wish to avoid (legal) proceedings for trademark infringement and passing off.”
The Icecreamists, located in the fashionable Covent Garden district, began selling the ice cream two weeks ago. Each serving came in a martini glass and was priced at £14 ($22.50).
But the popular dessert soon ran afoul of officialdom. A week ago city staff confiscated the shop’s supply, saying two public complaints had been lodged over whether it should be selling edibles made from human bodily fluids.
Health officials — who pointed out that viruses, including hepatitis, can be passed through breast milk — are testing the ice cream while they await guidance from Britain’s Food Standards Agency. They were expecting results Monday.
The Icecreamists, which paid 15 women who responded to an online ad to donate their breast milk, says the milk was screened in line with blood donor requirements before being pasteurized and mixed with vanilla pods and lemon zest.
