Tila Tequila threatens blog with legal action for mentioning her name
All publicity apparently isn’t good publicity if you’re a Z-list celebrity, with lawyers representing Tila Tequila threatening Nerve for the crime of mentioning her name without permission.
One post at Nerve mentioning Tequila didn’t even focus on her exclusively, instead mention her in passing with other news.
Tila Tequila’s lawyers claim that her name and image is subject to copyright, and can only be used with permission from Tequila, even in the context of reporting news about her.
Stupidity, and it wouldn’t last a minute in court, and so far Nerve is keeping the post up, but is seeking legal advice.
