Clint Eastwood is trying to put a stop to a furniture company that has allegedly been using his name to sell products.
The Oscar-winner has filed a lawsuit against Evofurniture, Inmod.com, and the owners of the website’s domain, whose names are Alan Finkelstein and Casey Choron.
In a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Eastwood claims Evofurniture and the Inmod site “are continuing to use Mr. Eastwood’s name, identity and persona for the purpose of attracting attention to the infringing products….”
Eastwood adds evidence to his claim by including the company’s marketing statements. Here are Evofuniture’s marketing pitches:
“When you’re invited into a person’s home, you get to see the good, the bad and the ugly. When visitors come to your home, the Clint 47” Entertainment Center makes your family room alone look like you live in a perfect world of a million dollar baby.”
“Whether your favorite movies are westerns from the 1970s or dramas from the 2000s, you need a comfortably stylish place to hang out and watch them. If you’re planning on having friends over for Dirty Harry marathons, then you definitely need something hip and modern. What you need is the Clint 71” Entertainment Center.”
Eastwood also claims that the furniture store didn’t seek permission to use his name nor his movie titles and wants them to stop utilizing his brand.
