If you visit a porn star’s website and take the photos from her pages, do you think she would be pissed off about it? What if you take one of the movies that she made and post it on your own website? Think the studio would be pissed. If you go around telling people you are the lifesize Nina Mercedez do you think she might be pissed? Of course!!! But more than being pissed off, in most cases they would have some powers in the realm of copyright and trademark infringements.
Well porn stars are not the only people in the world with these rights however they don’t seem to understand that.
See awhile ago I reported about Nina Mercedez, as well as a few other porn stars like Tera Patrick hiring a company to handle their MySpace pages. I got trashed to no end about reporting on this. Some people even say I got some threats (which isn’t actually true). But it was such a hassle I just stayed quiet about the subject and would just post images of their mistakes. I figured instead of me blabbing about it, a picture was worth 1,000 words.
Well despite the evidence to the contrary, some people came out and said that I was wrong. Nina Mercedez being one of them claimed to run her own page. That’s all well and good but let me be clear here ……. either the company she hired to run her myspace page or she herself while running her myspace page, committed a little oopsy today by infringing on the Matel trademark by using the name “Barbie” to describe some naked chick they want you to add to your friends list on MySpace.
Previous porn stars have been sued for such things, with the biggest name lawsuit being that of Lexus Locklear, who now goes by the name of Lexi. There is also Katsumi and a few Barbie lawsuits over the years. Let’s just say Matel doesn’t like their CHILDREN’S brand being sullied by naked chicks claiming to be a “lifesize Barbie” and as with previous lawsuits in the past, sometimes these companies go over the people who post such claims and in this case, it’s the Nina Mercedez camp.
Now I’m no lawyer but I smart enough to guess that if anyone were to go steal content from Nina Mercedez’s official website, she would be one pissed off porn star and probably have her lawyer send some nasty letters. So then why would she think it was now okay to infringe on anyone else’s trademarks? So deny hiring some company running your myspace page all you want, but if I were you I would have one serious ass talk with these fucktards, because clearly the previous fraud they were perpetuating wasn’t enough. Now they are making you look even better.
