    Default Madonna can't use "Material Girl" name

    Madonna faces Material Girl battleWENN, August 20, 2010

    Madonna is facing a lawsuit over her new Material Girl collection: Bosses at a clothing company have accused the superstar of stealing the trademark.

    The pop singer and her daughter Lourdes have released a fashion line for teenagers through Macy's department store, and they have used the title of one of Madonna's most famous songs as the brand name.

    However, People reports that executives at clothing manufacturer L.A. Triumph Inc. claim in a lawsuit that the company has been trading under the Material Girl banner since 1997, and insist "Madonna and her newfound company do not have the right to trade in the same space" under the brand.

    L.A. Triumph bosses have asked a judge to ban Madonna from any further use of the trademark as well as demanding they receive all profits the line has garnered so far, reports the site.

    Even though I personally think Madonna is the mother of all whores(although talented with some decent songs) , this seems kind of f'd up to me seeing as how no one would even know the phrase "Material Girl" if it weren't for her.

    her record company probably sold the rights of the name to this other outfit, but I agree, she put the phrase on the map. Seems unfair to not let her use it.
