Default *news* new article on WWE/Marvel Lawsuit

Gerweck.net:

Newsrama.com has an article
regarding the WWE vs Marvel Comics lawsuit over the name Hulk Hogan. As
reported in a previous newsletter, WWE filed a suit against Marvel
Comics over the rights of the name Hulk Hogan, Hulkster and Hulkamania.
Marvel claimed that the rights expired, whereas WWE is claiming that
they don't expire till next year. The fight is crucial as WWE ventures
in their newest project - WWE 24/7. Without rights for the names, they
can't use any footage of the Hulkster. You can read the interesting
story at

Its WWE's fault for not securing these rights YEARS ago.

Marvel should have sued the fuck out of McMahon when Hogan first appeared

exactly. the WWE should've either given him a similar but different name, but it's their fault for not making sure that they still had the rights to his name.

WWE bought rights to use the name, but it has expired. They should just buy the rights to use his name. Besides, this whole think is stupid, nobody confuses "Hulk Hogan" with "The Hulk."
Why can't there be peace
