The greeting card industry just lost to Paris Hilton. More specifically: Hallmark. So if you're forced to pay a little bit more for a greeting card, blame it on her. Cause they just paid her a fat check to settle. From Yahoo:
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.
Everywhere else people are angry at Paris for getting more money, although I'll have to side with her on this. Damn she's smart for trademarking stuff!
