Over 1350 posts and still never a Wiener of the Day!
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. --- The Economist, 11/17/01
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.
Hey look! My wiener is bigger than yours!
Banned Once! The independant thought alarm went off, knew to much about b*tching.
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".
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.
I think spike lee must have a huge ego...i mean is he the only person in the world named spike?...he sucks...i thought he was ok untill i heard an interview were he was totally ranking on quenten tarinteno...spike lee doesnt hold a candle to him in film making ability...what an arrogant jackass
KURT ANGLE Your next WWE champion...ITS TRUE...ITS DAMN TRUE!!!!
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.

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..
Originally posted by eviljonhunt81Why 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.
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*)
When are a bunch of nails gonna get together and sue Spike Lee and his Mama? Or is he gonna change history? "And then they drove Spike Lees into the wrists of Jesus...." the dumbass might make some dime off the bible. You bastard!
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?
