That's Stupid


Paris Hilton Sues Over 'That's Hot' Card (link)

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 8) - Paris Hilton is suing over the use of her picture and catchphrase "That's hot" on a greeting card. Hilton sued Hallmark Cards Inc. in U.S. District Court seeking an injunction and unspecified damages to be determined at trial.

According to the lawsuit filed Thursday, the card is titled "Paris's First Day as a Waitress" and shows a photo of Hilton's face on a cartoon of a waitress serving a plate of food to a patron. In a dialogue bubble she says, "Don't touch that, it's hot." The customer cartoon asks, "What's hot?" She answers, "That's hot."

The suit says Hilton owns the trademark "That's hot," which was registered on Feb. 13, 2007...

Donald Trump was able to trademark "You're Fired" and Michael Buffer "Let's Get Ready to Rumble." So, I guess anthing's possible.
