KEITH URBAN SUES . . . KEITH URBAN
Country superstar Keith Urban has filed a lawsuit against a painter by the same name, claiming that the lesser-known Urban’s website infringes trademark and cyber-squatting laws.
Keith filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Nashville against the New Jersey painter who uses the website keithurban.com to advertise oil paintings for sale. The suit states that the website could possibly deceive the public into believing that it has a connection to the more famous Keith Urban. The site does include a link to Keith’s tour schedule and there is no disclaimer that the painter is not the country star. Keith is asking that the site be shut down and its domain name transferred to his ownership. Keith’s actual website is keithurban.net.
