Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, cannot seem to catch a break lately. From learning her ex Chris Martin is dating a much younger and more successful Jennifer Lawrence, 24, to her pretentious lifestyle website, Goop, being sued for copyright infringement.
Seems Gwyneth is having a hard time coming up with her own content for the delusional website because The Wrap reports that Charles Platkin, known to his followers and fans as the “Diet Detective,” has filed a lawsuit against Paltrow’s site, Goop.com, for infringing on his “Diet Detective” copyright.
While Platkin owns the rights to the moniker since 2008, he also uses it for a syndicated column, and hosts a website under the same name. Goop.com used the phrase in question without license or permission by Platkin in an article posted to the site in mid-July. At first, Platkin asked the company to remove the infringement. They obliged, but neglected to remove the infringement still present in meta tags, as the title of the article at the Goop site, and in search engine results. The company’s response was textbook Gwyneth, who seems to think she is cut of a different cloth, as Platkin was told by the company, “that its usage of his mark was allowed by the “First Amendment,” reports The Wrap.
Platkin reports that as of August 18th, the infringement was still present at the Goop site. Gwyneth should have considered a website or company that tells members how to lose thousands of fans per day, because her distorted sense of reality, and failed attempts to understand any class but her own (the entitled, born rich, promiscuous, and insufferable snob class) are the perfect way to demonstrate how to lose fans. Hope the actress has consciously coupled with a good lawyer.
Tell us what you think! Another example of Gwyneth’s ignorance and entitlement? Or, is this a ploy for Platkin to get his name out there?
