Shaq Suing Over ‘Shaqtus’ Nickname

by January 19, 2010

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 site and selling t-shirts (which you can still get for $15 at their site) bearing the likeness, nickname, and number of the Shaqtus.”
