Ringo Starr Gives Up On The Legal Battle Against A Sex Toy Brand Using His Name
The Beatles’ drummer Ringo Starr recently made it to the headlines of rock world news following his decision to drop his lawsuit against the company that sells pleasure products using his name after both parties reached a settlement.
As you may recall, back in 2019 Ringo Starr had filed a lawsuit against Screaming O pleasure products, upon seeing that they have a line of ‘RingO’ penis rings. The fact that his and line’s name are identical was very disturbing for the rockstar, who stated that this could harm his reputation.
Furthermore, Ringo was uncomfortable with the product carrying the same name as that could lead to a lot of confusion. For instance, his fans would probably think that their favorite rockstar has decided to continue his career as an entrepreneur and that his latest business venture is sex toys.
After two years, the opposing parties finally managed to achieve a settlement. The company named Screaming O promised that they’ll do everything in their power to avoid any of their business activities to lead to confusion between the brand and Ringo Starr. Furthermore, on basis of the settlement, the brand will be obligated to include a space between ‘Ring’ and ‘O.’
