Lindsay Lohan Sues E-Trade

2010-03-10 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 60 Comments
Actress/musician Lindsay Lohan has filed a lawsuit against financial company E-Trade, arguing that a recent high-profile advert by the company violates her image rights.

The advertisment, which first aired during the Superbowl last month, depicts a "milkaholic" baby named Lindsay. Lohan's attorneys argue that the blonde child is modeled after her and uses her name and characterisation in business without her permission. It is argued that Lohan has the same level of name-recognition as Oprah and Madonna.

Lohan's attorneys demand that the ad be pulled, that all existing copies be turned over to her, and that $100 million be paid in compensation for the distress caused.

Chris Brown, the unfortunately-named spokesman for the company that produced the ad, said that it's: "just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team."

The original ad can be seen here: http://tinyurl.com/ya9v2kx

Pretty sure if E-Trade wanted to go after a celebrity, they'd pick someone a little more culturally relevant

"a "milkaholic" baby named Lindsay." seriously? Do you wish for your image to be automatically attached to anything "aholic"? Guess that's her trademark. Everyone watch out! Lindsay Lohan will sue any sonofabitch who dares to be an alcoholic because that infringes on her 'iconic' image.

Hey. I think that Lindsay is right in doing this. It's completely obvious that if anyone ever uses the name "Lindsay" they are obviously talking about her. I mean she is really famous, and a good actor/ artist/ performer/ role model and all.

The sonofabitch would also have to be named Lindsay in order to infringe on her 'iconic' image.

If she were suing anybody who dared to be an alcoholic, there would be lots of lawsuits against Native Americans in New Mexico...

I'm not from NM, but a friend of mine recently moved back from ABQ and told me about always seeing drunk Natives just passed out on bus benches all the time or just belligerent around town during the day.

If I go for the summer, I'll try to document all of it ;)

Oh trust me, it wouldn't take more than a single downtown bus ride or casino trip to make a full length feature on it.




I've actually seen native people get cut off at bars because they're 'perpetuating stereotypes.' Wish I was kidding.

I really hope I go for the summer now, the hilarity is too good to pass up.

I've also heard about there being lots of junkies, any truth to that?
