oooo SNAP!

i don't pay much attention to paris hilton. or try not to, because sometimes it's hard to avoid here when you're a gossip hound like me.

in any case, i am LOVING this report about her lawsuit against hallmark cards for using her image and "catchphrase", brought to you courtesy of mamapop:

"Yesterday Hallmark filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit. And they filed that motion AWESOMELY:

"Hilton has become a household name, based in large part on her efforts to draw attention to herself. Having done so, she has subjected herself to public scutiny and the parodist's pen. The First Amendment does not allow her to respond by welcoming the fawning and flattering, but silencing the critical and comical."
It's been a few years since my mass media law courses, but I'm pretty sure this is the legal equivalent of a big BOO-YAH, HELLS YEAH, followed by puffing your chest out and asking if someone wants a piece of you."
