TMZ is reporting that only after one week since the Ultimate Warrior died that some people made T-shirts with his name and logo without the permission from Ultimate Creations which is Warriors marketing company.
Here is their article:
Feel the power of the Ultimate Warrior’s trademark rights … from BEYOND THE GRAVE — the late wrestler is trying to crush all attempts to make a quick buck off his death.
T-shirts donning Warrior’s name and logo popped up all over the Internet last week after he passed … and now attorneys for Ultimate Creations (Warrior’s marketing company) want the imitations scrapped from the net — citing the wrestler’s trademark.
We’re told the cease and desist letter — obtained by TMZ — has been fired off to more than 100 merchandisers already … threatening legal action if they don’t shut down all sales immediately.
Warrior will also gorilla press slam dead relatives of any knockoff salesmen … in Heaven.
That’s what we imagine, anyway.
