Shaq Suing Over ‘Shaqtus’ Nickname

Evidently, O’Neal takes his nicknames very seriously: “Shaq and a company that he has officially licensed his name and image to are involved in a lawsuit in Las Vegas with another company that has been using O’Neal’s ‘Shaqtus’ nickname on apparel and a Website. Yes, the man of 1000 nicknames is at the center of a little trademark brouhaha all because someone is squatting on the www.shaqtus.net site and selling t-shirts (which you can still get for $15 at their site) bearing the likeness, nickname, and number of the Shaqtus.”

    Wow… I just looked at the website and I’m pretty sure shaq is only suing because… well… That mascot is just plain insulting. They can probably get em for libel too. Damn.

    Really. Just look at it.

    Money is money. He just wants a piece of the pie. Its HIS nickname, why not? Its not like he wont let Video games not use his likeness…like Mike. Now THAT really annoys me.

    “…bearing the likeness,…”? It has an ape face on a big green d!ldo, it looks more like Danny Manning plus Shaq hasn’t been that thin in a long time

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    “brouhaha” means feud or conflict.

    @Statik – I almost voided my computer’s warranty with beer sprayed through my nose then I read “ape face on a big green dildo”. Well done sir. Well done.
