Ruling in Favor of Sly Over Sly
A federal judge ruled that there’s little chance people will confuse Sylvester Stallone‘s Sly magazine with a foot fetish web site of the same name. The web site had filed a $1 million copyright infringement suit against Sly’s magazine.
“There is a little difference between shoe fetish and Mr. Sylvester Stallone,” Manhattan Judge Richard Casey said while ruling in favor of Sly publishers American Media. This ruling allowed Sly and American Media to continue publication.
However, American Media attorney Susan Coleman was quoted as saying, “The last issue is on the newsstand and there will be no additional issues.”
