Jimmy Buffett goes after Six Flags
The New York Post's Page Six gossip column reports this morning that singer Jimmy Buffett is claiming copyright infringement against Six Flags
over the theme park chain's "Carrothead Club."
The Six Flags club is for kids and takes its name from the chain's carrot-chomping Bugs Bunny mascot. But the name is too close to "Parrotheads," Buffett's fan club, for Buffett's comfort.
Buffett, of course, has a deal with Universal Orlando, which houses one of Buffett's Margaritaville restaurants at CityWalk.
I love Jimmy and his music, but I don't know if he has a case here...
Love him too! Love his food (Margaritaville and Cheeseburger in Paradise), but he doesn't have a case in my opinion.
I love him but sorry jimmy you dont have a case! Go Yankees!!!
Put the kids' "Carrothead Club" next door to the grown-ups' "Parrothead Bar," and everyone's happy.
That's pretty funny. His lawyers probably know they don't have a case either. But, this is most likely a legal maneuver to send out the message that they will sue anybody for anything that treads near his highly lucrative name recognition. Afterall, his name is his retirement.
I’m wondering when the comedian Carrot top will also claim infringement.
I cant stand him or his music, and this idiotic lawsuit just shows more proof that he is a total moron!!!!
The Lawsuit may be crazy..........but it's great PR.
Idiotic, eh? Swarthy folk be negative blogging about Jimmy.
