Madonna faces lawsuit over Material Girl

Madonna is facing a lawsuit over her new Material Girl collection sold exclusively through Macy’s

Executives at clothing manufacturer LA Triumph, Inc (I couldn’t find their website…) claim in a lawsuit that the company has been trading under the Material Girl banner since 1997, and insist Madonna’s range causes “deception” and “confusion in the marketplace”, according to papers obtained by TMZ.com.

LA Triumph bosses have asked a judge to ban Madonna from any further use of the trademark as well as demanding they receive all profits the line has garnered so far, reports the site.

Yeh, good luck with that. Obviously the name of Madonna’s youth-targeted label is inspired by her 1985 hit, “Material Girl”, outdating LA Triumph, Inc by twelve years. You can’t deny, it’s a nice bit of easy publicity for them though.
