Maryse's Attire Could Get WWE In Trouble

Rumour has it Wind Up records (the record company of Evanescence, Seether and many others) are contemplating sueing WWE after WWE diva Maryse was seen on TV sporting a pair of wrestling trunks with her name written on the back. However the font used was a font created for the rock band Evanescence and was used on their debut album Fallen. Wind Up are apparently angry because they were not asked or paid to have the rights to use a copy righted font.

You can copyright text? Hope Mayrse doesn't get in trouble over shitty copy right laws.

Yes as stupid as it sounds. That style of font or "effect" is the work of someone and going by the book, WWE should have either asked the copyright owners for prior permission or paid a fee to use their work. Again though, it's completely stupid.

Shame on TNA for letting go one of the best female wrestlers in the world.

WWE can toss them a million and thats that. That is chump change to WWE and it may be alittle costly but if Vince can give out three million dollars then this is nothing

TAG TEAM EXCELLENCE!

Oi you used my font on this post, your getting sued.
 
All joking aside that is ridiculous, nobody would ever notice this and surely it would promote the record company if anything.

Well just for the record WWE would do the same if someone used their copyrighted material, even if it was petty. Hell, look what the World Wildlife Fund's done. it's stupid but it's well within their rights it seems. If i was WWE though I'd attempt to fight it and try to prove that  it wasn't the exact same font.

The fact that it's a font makes it retarded.


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

This is really retarded. people whining and bi*ching over someone using text on there trunks. they obviously just want money because they probably just want to blow allof theres or something.
