Kim Kardashian Sues Old Navy For Hiring Actress Who Looks Like Her

from the big-ass-infringement dept

Kim Kardashian doesn't get written about much on Techdirt because she's not relevant in the world of...well, in the world, really.  But you may remember her being discussed back when she was upset that some cookie-diet company was featuring news stories suggesting she liked their product on their website.  Now we have a story in the LA Times, sent in by John MacMullen, detailing her new lawsuit against Old Navy for infringing on her publicity rights...or something.

We've been hearing more about these publicity rights being tossed around lately, but that doesn't mean they're new.  Fortunately for us, at least these types of cases tend to be entertaining in their ridiculousness.  Perhaps you've heard the case involving Vanna White and the company that got sued for having a blonde-haired robot that dared to turn letters?  Or the one where Johnny Carson sued Here's Johnny Portable Toilets Inc. because he used the tagline "the world's most famous commodian" on The Tonight Show?  Well, I don't know if Kim can top that, but let's take a look.

Apparently Old Navy hired an actress that looks like Kim and featured her in a television ad campaign.  If you're waiting for a follow up including some kind of long list of Kardashian-related things the actress did in the video or some kind of hinting that Old Navy themselves did to suggest something related to Kim, there isn't any.  She just looks like Kim Kardashian, which apparently is enough to sue over.  You can see the commercial for yourself below (make sure you have a barf bag handy):

So I have a couple of questions. 

First: How does just hiring someone that looks like someone else require a lawsuit?  At no point when I braved my way through watching the commercial did I think to myself, "Oh, that's totally something Kim Kardashian would have done".  I mean, if the commercial showed the actress, oh I don't know, waving the Armenian flag, that would've been one thing.  And perhaps if the commercial showed her videotaping herself being nailed by a mildly talented R&B singer, I would have inferred the reference.  But the casting call for the commercial didn't even call for a Kim look-a-like!  The actress, Melissa Molinaro, told E! Online that her casting call had been "for a true dance pop superstar."

Second: At what point does this work the other way around?  Molinaro said in relation to this story:

"Thank God I booked this commercial because I've gotten so much airtime."

What if, as a result of this thing, she becomes famous?  Like, really famous?  Say, more famous than Kim Kardashian?  Does that mean Kim can't ever do an ad campaign again, because Molinaro will immediately file suit?

      Both are hot and the lawsuit has made pretty much a mess because ppl are simply mistaking one for the other now. Kim successfully boosted Melissa's exposure so even if Kim wins this absurd lawsuit Melissa has already won much more.

      Epic stupidity from Melissa. Er, Kim.

      And yes, Husler, I prefer Melissa =))

      I've had extraordinary face recognition abilities for most of my life. My wife does NOT. We'll be watching a show and she'll say, "Is that the woman from...?" to which I immediately reply (her not having said the name of the show or the name of the person), "NO. That is not her and they look nothing alike." The sad part is that I usually know who she was talking about and also know that the person is a different actor.

    Also, can the Kardashian sisters also sue Old Navy because Melissa looks too much like them? What about the mother? BTW, I only know Kim has sisters because I tripped on the remote and accidentally switched the channel to E! while one of their shows was on. I swear.

    I don't pay enough attention to anything Kim Kardashian does, other than noting her name (and often picture) get plastered on the news every week or two. I don't even pay enough attention to her likeness to have even noticed any possible similarities to this model.

    However, having seen the commercial, the similarities are totally obvious. Kim Kardashian sucks and so does this commercial.

    The REAL reasons for the lawsuit

    1. Melissa Molinaro is prettier.

    2. And if the screen presence is any indication,
    there's a real human being there, not just a
    hollow attention-whoring shell.

    I can tell the difference

    How can you tell the difference between Melissa Molinaro and Kim whatshername?

    Melissa doesn't have a butt the size of Montana.

    Melissa doesn't have thighs like old growth in the Redwood forest.

    Melissa uses only one bodily orifice publicly and that is for vocalizations.

    Melissa appears to have more that 3 functioning brains cells

    Melissa appears to have actual talent.

      I've re-thought my position on this.

      Kardashian should indeed have veto power over people's lives if they happen to resemble her. She's not only rich & famous, she's rich and famous for no real reason at all, which makes her the elite of the elite. These people are our decided betters and we have to treat them accordingly.

And sorry Kim.. you didn't create the wavy curly hair style you always rock so you might want to step aside. I think this just boils down to the fact she is pissed homegirl is dating her ex. Not only does this look narcissistic but it's just plain stupid. Kick rocks Kim!

    This will be an interesting case . . .

    Vanna White sued over a robot in a commercial who performed a job similar to hers in a spoof of a gameshow similar to wheel of fortune.

    And she won.

    I have to say, watching the commercial, I could see the Kardashian look. There is definitely homage to the fashion scene and culture scene Kardashian moves in.

    Is that enough to give this case legs? I dunno.

    First of all, why did she sue Old Navy? Old Bany doesn't look like Kim Kardashian, Melissa Molinaro does. Shouldn't that latter have been sued for infringement?

    In any case, I think I have a solution: Kim Kardashian used to date Reggie Bush. Now Melissa Molinaro is dating him. I think Reggie Bush should be called in as an expert witness to say whether they are more similar or more different.

    How can anyone honestly take this case seriously? A person has limited control over what they look like, much less who else they might look like. Old Navy was going for a certain look and they found someone who met their requirements, it's not like they went out of their way to make the actress look like someone else. This is like some random black guy suing a company whose ad featured a black guy that wasn't him and claiming publicity rights.

    Here's another thought: since this lawsuit would make it impossible for Melissa Molinaro to do any commercials without the everpresent threat of another lawsuit and would effectually bar her from doing any more advertisement work, she should just counter sue Kim Kardashian for interference with commerce. I'll bet that a threat of a 20-yr sentence would do wonders.

    Ok..

    So after actually watching the commercial..I think this is just a case of Kim being jealous that Melissa just has better looks than her. :O

    First of all, I think that The pretty model in old Navy is alo thinner and has a better modeling body than Kim. Kim is such a hater!! Can you let someone else make some money!!!!

    The Magazine

    I don't think it was Old Navy purposefully trying to use a look alike, but I do think it was the magazine that brought that up. It is just her being sue happy and looking for attention. It is part of her character. She also broadcast her character on TV anyone can see that and her intentions.

    The media should replace kim with this better looking girl called Melissa Molinaro who actually has talent and works hard unlike Kim K.

    So in KK's world anyone who bears a superficial resemblance to a celebrity is forever banned from working in the industry.

    I'm not much into name calling, but she is an imbecile, and so is the lawyer who brought this suit on her behaf
