TMZ is running another stupid story today. It amuses me when they run utter crap and main stream media picks it up as a fact. Their story is that Omarosa sent Pettifleur a cease and desist letter over her bitch book. This is ridiculous in so many ways.
First, you can’t copyright a book title. There are tons of books with the same name out there. There is no copyright for titles. So Omarosa’s letter saying she will be charging $150K for every infraction of her “copyright” is ridiculous. She has no right to ask for Pettifleur’s financials on her book sales. It’s just all a joke.
Even if Omarosa had a series of books, like The Hunger Games and it was considered her brand, she could apply for a trademark, not a copyright. Her attorney for this action is a criminal defense attorney from Florida who is on Nancy Grace and other tabloidy court shows. He’s an attention seeker just like Omarosa.
And finally, copyrights are issued for the country they are copyrighted in. US copyrights, if she has one, which she doesn’t, do not apply in Australia. Did I say finally? Because there is just so much stupid to point out here. Like the fact that the titles are not even the same!
So if they actually did send a letter to Pettifleur, which I find hard to believe, she can just wipe here ass with it and go about her business. Meanwhile, we can just watch actual news stations repeat the crap like it’s real.
After all, that is all Omarosa wanted was to get mentioned on TMZ to keep of from happily forgetting about her existence.
