Lady Gaga’s lawyers threaten legal action against "Baby Gaga" breast milk ice cream makers
Pop superstar Lady Gaga’s lawyers have threatened to file charges against the makers of the breast milk ice cream named "Baby Gaga," reports the AFP.
In a letter addressed to the London-based restaurant The Icecreamists Limited, law firm Mishcon de Reya gave the makers until 4 p.m. today (midnight in Manila) to change the name "if you wish to avoid proceedings for trademark infringement and passing off."
The letter accused the makers of "taking unfair advantage of, and riding on the coattails of" the Grammy winner’s trademarks in a "deliberately provocative and, to many people, nausea-inducing" manner.
At £14 (about P1,000) per serving, the ice cream is presented by waitresses in "flamboyant costumes, something Lady Gaga is well known for," according to the AFP.
The legal counsel also said The Icecreamists must "cease and desist from... associating with Lady Gaga any ice cream you are offering."
Launched last month, the ice cream is now off the menu because authorities are currently conducting health and safety checks.
