Paris Hilton Wins A Lawsuit
Because she so needs the money, right? Paris Hilton has just won a lawsuit against a company who featured a greeting card with the words "That's Hot." And since this catchphrase is copyrighted by the star, that's how she won it. You know, because it takes a genius to put two words together.
The socialite has settled a lawsuit against the company over a greeting card that featured a scene seemingly ripped from her old reality show "The Simple Life." The caption read "Paris's First Day as a Waitress" and made a pun on her trademarked catch phrase, "That's Hot." In 2007, Hilton sued, claiming her publicity rights had been violated.
Last week, attorneys for Hilton and Hallmark advised a California judge that they had reached a settlement. A confidentiality provision limits the release of exact terms.
