Just heard that Spike Lee won a temporary injunction in court against Viacom using the name Spike TV... wonder if that means they'll have to name their network after a different Dudley Boy now.

Well, hey, when you think about it, wouldn't "Bubba TV" be a much more fitting name for the network?

But then they'd be sued by Bill Clinton.

In the issues of December 16th, 2000 to November 10th, 2001, we may have given the impression that George W. Bush had been legally and duly elected president of the United States. We now understand that this may have been incorrect, and that the election result is still too close to call. The Economist apologizes for any inconvenience.

Well, let us dig deeper into the case. D-Von TV? Hmm anybody like the ring of that? Big Dick TV, umm no. Sounds like something used for the newwest porn channel and RIP by the way. Sign Guy TV, WTF? Ok, they'll just have to pick a different superstar other than the Dudleys. How about Kane TV or even King TV? Wait, couldn't do King TV then the video game company Namco that makes Tekken would be in tizzy.

I enjoy Spike Lee's movies and think he lends his celebrity to some causes that could use the exposure he can give them.

He doesn't have a fucking leg to stand on with this though. There is no way that anyone could see the ads for Spike TV and think he was somehow involved. It's been made very clear that it is just "the first network for men".

F.A.B- I agree wholeheartedly about the lawsuit.

Does this now mean that no one can ever use the name "Spike" on TV? Jeez, go back to yelling at Reggie Miller on the sidelines.

I thought about this in the shower because I do that sometimes.

I actually don't know anything about the lawsuit. It's possible that Spike Lee has the name trademarked and doesn't want to play nice with Viacom. Steve Borden owns the "Sting" trademark but lets the singer guy use the name because he's cool and knows no one will get the two confused.

Plus, having the logo read just "Spike" in a handwriting font could give the impression that this is some kind of personal project. That pretty much goes away after you watch a commercial for the network but it's still out there.

Just to put something else in -- Spike also has to pay bail for this temporary injunction. Plus, if he loses, he pays Viacom's bills.

I bet there's a settlement that will happen, because Spike versus Viacom could be long and drawn out.

That's really, really stupid.

Spike Lee must REALLY have a huge frickin' ego is he assumes people will relate him to a TV network, let alone feels the need to sue over it. It's a waste of time and money, especially to the courts and do Ex-TNN, who have spent millions (I'd assume) on the new ad campaign. What harm would Spike TV do to his reputation? Seriously?

Things like this destroy my faith in the Justice system.

For Spike it's all free pub, that's what this guy has always been about...Cheap marketing! His carrer is on the down, and now every news outlet in the country has been on this. And, yeah, he will end up with a few million once it's said and done.

11 years old. Stayed up until midnight to watch a show on ABC on a weekend because they said Sting was going to be there... I was highly dissapointed :(

How about TV TV, or Dances with TV?
Seriously, this is just bizarre. If it was 'Spike Lee TV' I could understand..but I never thought of any connection. Did any of you?
Then again..we all made a connection to Spike Dudley, the most well known Spike in our world.
Maybe millions of "normal" people immediately think of Spike Lee when someon says Spike..
It remains bizarre..

Why are you all acting like Spike Lee is doing a bad thing? Anything that can prevent the world from getting stupider is good in my book.

He'll probably sue the Buffy writers next. I mean the shit that that bleached blonde vamp's done to sully the good Spike name doesnt bear thinking about.

And the 2 are just as easily confused.

Are you guys trying to say that the role of Spike in the Gremlins might not have been played by Spike Lee? I'm so confused!

It's not like he is going to prevent the channel from existing so he isn't doing that much good
But the whole idea of the lawsuit is what is irking people I'd say. And isn't it very stupid to believe you own the name spike? (even if he turns out to really own it *grin*)

Nag, I'd hardly call $500,000 free marketing, which he had to pay to get the injunction. It's sad that Spike Lee has to do this and play up the "angry black filmmaker" stereotype. Like I said, just sad.

When is Spike Lee going to sue Shinichiro Watanabe who created cowboy bebop and the character Spike Spiegel?
