Jimmy Buffett Filed Trademark Infringement Suit



Singer Jimmy Buffett filed suit on Monday Nov 13th asking a U.S. federal judge to stop a Web site operator from infringing on his trademarks.

Singer Jimmy Buffett wants his rights back. The veteran musician filed a lawsuit Monday November 13th, asking a US federal judge to stop a Website operator from infringing his trademarks.

In the lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Galveston, Texas, Buffett accuses Robert Akard of operating a Website, underonehut.com, that sells Buffett-trademarked items without permission. Items sold on the Website, including the same clothing and CDs available through Buffett's own Website, margaritaville.com and in his chain of stores and restaurants.

Moreover, in the legal papers Buffett also complains that Akard wrongly bills himself as Jimmy Buffett's Online Store for Merchandise. Thus, he is asking a judge to order Akard to stop using the singer's name and likeness, account for his profits, turn them over to Buffett and pay unspecified damages.
