It’s the average night in Gotham City, which may as well be named “Disturbia,” when danger strikes. Commissioner Gordan flashes an “S.O.S” via the Bat Signal to summon Batman and Robin. The Penguin and Catwoman are dueling it out and innocent victims are caught in the crossfire. “Shut Up And Drive” shouts Damian Wayne, a.k.a. the “Rude Boy” Wonder as Batman guides the Batmobile to the villains’ location. Once there, Batman hears Penguin squawk “Bitch Better Have My Money” as he aims his deadly “Umbrella” (ella-ella-eh-eh-eh) at Catwoman, who hisses in return, “Money? Where are my ‘Diamonds’?” Batman knowing how to “Talk That Talk” intervenes and shouts “It’s time to ‘Take A Bow.’ You have ‘FourFiveSeconds’ to break this up!” Penguin snarls “Maybe we should settle this with a game of ‘Russian Roulette,'” before Batman knocks him out with one uppercut, sending him flying into a nearby “Birthday Cake.” Catwoman then turns up the sensuality, purring, “Where Have You Been All My Life?” Batman struggles, thinking “We Found Love” in a hopeless place. “‘What’s My Name?'” Catwoman coos, “Why don’t we go back to my ‘California King Bed’ where you can make me feel like the ‘Only Girl In The World’?” She then adds, “Hope you don’t mind a little ‘S&M’.” Just then, the police arrive. Batman regretfully tells Catwoman, “You’re off to ‘Rehab’.” Commissioner Gordon assures him “Don’t worry, Batman, we caught it all on security tape, so we can always view it ‘Pon Da Replay’.” With that Batman says to Robin, “We Ride” as they zip off into the night.
Rihanna’s company Roraj Trade LLC handles her copyrights for products like fashion and perfume. Last year, Roraj Trade LLC attempted to copyright Rihanna’s real first name Robyn, for use in “providing on-line non-downloadable general feature magazines.” In other words, Rihanna seems to be looking to launch an online lifestyle magazine, similar to Gwenyth Paltrow’s Goop and wants to brand it with her real name.
Enter DC Comics, who are seeking to block her copyright proposal on the grounds that Robyn is too similar to… Robin. Yes, the Boy Wonder is at the center of this controversy. DC already owns the rights to “Robin” in regards to comic books and action figures. On Monday, May 18, 2015, DC formally opposed Rihanna’s attempt to trademark “Robyn,” out of fear that consumers will mistake any goods or services associated with Rihanna’s “Robyn” with their established character Robin. DC states that “Robyn” is virtually identical to “Robin” in “sight, sound and commercial impression.” They even go so far as to accuse the pop singer of using the established reputation of “Robin” to further her own venture.
Now it’s up to DC and Rihanna/Roraj Trade LLC to come to an amicable agreement or they will have to plead their cases before the Trademark Office.
What do you think? Would you connect what will most likely be an online magazine about music and fashion with Batman’s teen sidekick? (Also, what about the actual singer who only goes by Robyn? Where does that leave her?)
