Legal representatives of the LeBron James digital company Uninterrupted drew headlines when they sent a cease and desist letter to the University of Alabama and Nick Saban, alleging copyright and intellectual property infringement from Alabama Football’s recently released social media series Shop Talk.
James representatives alleged the casual barbershop conversation series, set in the ‘Bama Cuts’ football facility barbershop infringes on the copyright and intellectual property of Uninterrupted’s own barbershop talk feature called The Shop.
In a press conference today, Saban said he wasn’t going to comment on the issue, then commented on the issue by saying he respects LeBron as a player, but he was aware of at least 20 barbershop type shows and Shop Talk is going to continue filming as scheduled, thank you very much.
“I’m sorry someone can be offended by something we were having fun with. I enjoyed it, and we’re going to continue to do it.”
Check out Saban telling team LeBron to go pound sand. He does have a point. LBJ’s legal claims look pretty weak.
