    Default Will Ed Sue Millionaire Matchmaker?

    So, before I begin, I have to admit that I watch the Millionaire Matchmaker. I guess it's just the idea that these wealthy, successful and so-called intelligent guys think that they are going to find a woman that wants them for them, and not their money at a place called "The Millionaires Club" that amuses me.

    Anyway,

    On last night's episode, Patti is sitting in her office talking about how great she is at her job, as usual, when I noticed a large red and white striped painting on the wall behind her. It was the "Frankenstein" pattern. So, I've got to wonder if this is a sanctioned painting, or if she will be hearing from Ed's attorneys soon.

    Why would it have to be sanctioned? I can paint an Frankenstein themed painting and hang it up on my wall if I want to and so can you.

    Does anyone have a photo of this? THat gave me a great idea to do that in my own office, or maybe in my living room if the wife would let me...I was thinking I could make 3 of them and have one red/white/black stripes, one with the yellow/black stripes, and one with just black and white.

    Better yet, Ed should be doing these painting himself and just autographing the bottom...I'd buy one.

    Just staple a few of his neckties to the wall and call it art.

    The difference is that it was broadcast on television, so wouldn't it be as if they showed the logo, or his likeness? I know that there are different rules and royalty rates depending upon how it is classified, but I would imagine if they didn't wanna risk having to pay Ed, they would have had to blur it out...?

    I don't think Ed can sue for artwork on someone's wall during a TV broadcast, unless they are using the artwork explicitely for profit. But who knows, I could ask my dad, but I don't care that much. LOL

    Van Halen has been dead long enough now that, I believe any likeness or representation has become public domain.

    Ed can sue for anything, and he likely would. Whether or not he wins is another story.

    I just don't know the legalities of it all. He obviously owns the pattern. I would imagine anyone could do with that pattern what they want in their home.

    When it is broadcast on TV, I dunno. I suppose you're right. Then again, I see stuff get blurred out. I don't know if it is because they have not paid to have their trademarks on TV or if it is because they would need to pay and instead of them paying, they blur it.

    Then again, I could just be full of shit.

    Not true... Ed's IP lawyers have been activiely enforcing his trademarks and copyrights, especially the frankenstein pattern fairly consistently since 2002 thru present.
