Brown v. Black: Your blog is wack!

November 24, 2008

New York blogger Twanna Hines, who blogs as Funky Brown Chick, filed a trademark-infringement lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for Maryland on Nov. 13 against Yesha Callahan of Odenton, alleging that Odenton’s Funky Black Chick blog is too similar to her own nom de net.

The complaint [pdf] is assigned to federal Judge (and Baltimore native) Andre M. Davis, whose appetite (or tolerance) for the funk could not be determined at press time.
