Gwyneth Paltrow: Goops! I Ripped Off The Diet Detective
With so many different blogs and other websites dedicated to health and wellness these days, it’s no wonder Gwyneth Paltrow accidentally snatched the moniker for her Goop column from another author.
According to a new lawsuit, Hunter College professor Charles Platkin was “grievously injured” when the “Shakespeare in Love” lady stole his trademarked name “The Diet Detective” and used it for her own e-commerce domain.
And though he reached out to Paltrow’s people over the phone and through email, they’re still using The Diet Detective in their weekly web newsletters.
Platkin claims he would have originally settled for an apology, but now that they’re giving him the runaround, he’s out for justice!
