Re: Sony suing kevin butler.

It'll be open and shut. Bridgestone already settled so Jerry Lambert won't be far off. They used the recognition Lambert had gained by being Kevin Butler for those ads and any court is going to side with Sony. Lanham Act says it all, Section 43(a) (codified at 15 USC 1125(a)) is the "likelihood of confusion" standard for infringement of an unregistered trademark or trade dress.

Their brand was at least slightly damaged after the whole internet **bleep**-storm that erupted when "Kevin Butler betrayed Sony."  Depending on how they go about this, they have a legitimate case.
