Douglas Wants Companies to Stop Using His Likeness



Michael Douglas sued two Boca Raton companies Monday, claiming they improperly used his name and image to promote their products and services

Michael Douglas is suing two Florida companies, Family Television Studios Inc. and Paradigm Media Group LLC, claiming they improperly used his name and image to promote their products and services.

Detailing on the case, the lawsuit mentioned that both companies had misused the two educational-purposed segments Douglas tapped in 2004 for commercial gain. Whereas, the so-called "Learning About ..." series supposedly was presented as educational and noncommercial, and was to focus on music, history and science, among other subjects.

And so, the actor wants the companies to stop using his likeness and name besides seeking any profits they made from the segments and compensation of more than $75,000, plus attorney's fees and others costs.
