CAA Sports
In early April, CAA Sports sent me a PDF. I don't open attachments from strangers, so I simply replied such and asked them to send me text. They never did. Today, while reviewing my emails, I decided to convert the PDF to text myself and read it. CAA Sports has demanded that I stop using their client's names and pictures. They claim "The unauthorized misappropriation of an individual's name and likeness for a commercial purpose is an infringement of his personal rights, privacy rights and common law trademark rights". Wow! Sounds like some pretty phony claims. I'm just wondering what the fans think of their heros threatening legal action for using their names. This letter was specific to Warrick Dunn, but CAA also asked me to remove their other clients; Brady Quinn, Tony Romo, Cadillac Williams, Mark Clayton and Malt Stover.
