So I was checking AOL News (daily habit) and I noticed a headline that read "Paris sues over 'That's Hot' card." As I continued reading the article, I learned she made the phrase a trademark and was suing Hallmark Cards for "commercial appropriation of identity, invasion of privacy, misappropriation of publicity, false representation that Hilton endorses the product, and infringement of a federally registered trademark." I immediately got scared that my own blog would be in jeopardy if her people ever found out. SO on that note, if anyone out there EVER reaches Paris and her personnel, know that I only used her phrase because 1) I like it and 2) I believed it would be catchy for this sort of blog - which features the "hottest" news in the entertainment industry. Also, I'd like to add that I will add the Trademark sign to my banner along with Paris' name to avoid any trouble -not that this blog is read by her- but in any case, I'd rather be safe than sorry.
