Don’t Mess with Jay-Z
Looks like you can’t get anything past Mr. [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm]. The Hip-hop superstar and his business partner are suing Boston Red Sox baseball player David Ortiz on Thursday for naming a Dominican Republic nightclub after their chain of 40/40 Club sports bar lounges.
Ortiz is being accused of piggybacking on the fame, value and goodwill of their name through his club Forty/Forty and its website, www.fortyforty.net, which they say has caused “marketplace confusion and damage.”
Get it together Ortiz, you do NOT mess with [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm].
