An attorney for New York firm Maverick Apparel LLC has sent a cease-and-desist letter to vlogger Logan Paul for, among other things, trademark infringement.
Paul, who operates his own YouTube channel, has been the target of outrage the past several days after he posted a video of himself in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, a place that’s seen a high rate of suicides. Paul’s YouTube video, which has since been removed, includes footage of himself reacting to what appears to be a victim of suicide. Paul, who commands a subscriber base of 15.4 million through the video-sharing platform, has since publicly apologized for his actions.
Paul’s behavior and use of Maverick is now the subject of a demand letter sent Thursday by Maverick Apparel LLC, which has no affiliation to Maverick by Logan Paul merchandise.
Maverick Apparel, founded in 2005, sells juniors and children’s apparel in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The company alleges in its letter that its business has taken a hit from confusion in the market by some who believe the two businesses are related.
The letter was sent to Paul and his counsel along with Maverick Media of Beverly Hills. YouTube chief executive officer Susan Wojcicki was also included in the list

In an attempt to shore up her falling poll numbers, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton went on the offensive, lashing out against minorities, considering a run as a third party candidate, and giving out Senator Bernie Sanders’ phone number. “She is finally tapping into the anger of the American public,” said Owen Cumbertweak, Clinton’s campaign Messaging Brigadier. “This is the outsider Clinton, not the Hillary Clinton who launched her presidential campaign in April and rebooted it six times after that. Because, remember, before she was a Washington insider, she was an outsider. So now, she’s an outsider again, but, like, a super outsider.”
The former Secretary of State made these comments during a rambling, unscripted seventy-minute speech, which included other observations:
I want to be the Democratic nominee, but if they don’t treat me fairly, I may keep the door open for something else. You like Joe Biden so much–why don’t you marry him? And give me a break–Martin O’Malley? Loser. Lincoln Chafee? He’s from Rhode Island–the smallest state, full of Hispanics and not the good kind. And Bernie Sanders? He says he’s a socialist, but Ronald Reagan once said he was a Democrat and look what happened. The Justice Department? Stupid. The State Department? Full of idiots and stupid idiots. I mean, if it weren’t for me, none of you would even be talking about hacking or secret documents or computers or national security. You should be thanking me for using a private server! We need to build a cyber wall and I’ll make the Russians and the Chinese pay for it. They will pay for it and they’ll give each person in the United States a new car. Russia and China love me. They love me. Everybody loves me! I get things done because I have a lot of money. If I can get 25 million dollars making speeches, I can get Russia and China to do whatever I want. Also, Maureen Dowd is a bimbo.
Following the speech, a Qunnipiac poll indicated that Clinton fell to twenty points behind Sanders and twelve points behind a DeWalt cordless drill.

Organizers of Gen Con, said to be the largest gaming convention in the U.S., have threatened to take their event — and potentially millions of dollars — out of Indiana if Governor Mike Pence (R) signs a controversial religious freedom bill into law.
Senate Bill 101 will prohibit state and local governments from “substantially burdening someone’s religious beliefs, unless that entity can prove it’s relying on the least restrictive means possible to further a compelling governmental interest,” MSNBC reports.
Supporters of the bill say that the legislation will protect people and business owners with strong religious beliefs from government interference. Opponents contend that the law could sanction discrimination, particularly against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.
“Gen Con proudly welcomes a diverse attendee base, made up of different ethnicities, cultures, beliefs, sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities, and socio-economic backgrounds,” Adrian Swartout, owner and CEO of Gen Con, wrote in a letter sent to Pence this week. “Legislation that could allow for refusal of service or discrimination against our attendees will have a direct negative impact on the state’s economy, and will factor into our decision-making on hosting the convention in the state of Indiana in future years.”
Gen Con claims to be the “longest-running, best-attended, gaming convention in the world.” According to Swartout, more than 56,000 people attended the convention at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis last year. Swartout added that the convention pumps “more than $ 50 million dollars [into] the city” annually.
According to the Indianapolis Star, Gen Con is under contract to host the event in Indianapolis through 2020. A spokesperson told the news outlet that though there are currently “no plans to break the contract,” the state’s decision on the religious freedom bill “would factor into future decisions.”
Indiana’s Republican-controlled Senate gave the measure final approval on Tuesday with a 40-10 vote. The bill is now awaiting Pence’s signature.
On Facebook Tuesday, Takei wrote:
Visit Indy, the tourism bureau for Indianapolis, has expressed concern that the legislation could greatly impact tourism to the city. Losing Gen Con, in particular, “would be a huge loss,” Visit Indy vice president Chris Gahl told WXIN.
“Anytime something impacts our ability to market Indianapolis and drive convention business, we of course get concerned,” Gahl said.
Pence appears determined to sign the bill. Responding to Gen Con’s letter, a spokesperson told the Indianapolis Star: “The governor has been clear on where he stands on this issue and we don’t have anything to add at this time.”

By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) – New York’s Metropolitan Opera said it will lock out its musicians and other unionized employees next week if a new contract agreement is not reached, in an escalation of a labor dispute that threatens to derail an entire opera season. Peter Gelb, the Met’s general manager, wrote a letter to chorus members, orchestra players, stagehands and other employees on Wednesday saying they should prepare for a work stoppage if a new agreement is not reached when current contracts expire on July 31. The Met, which says it has an annual operating budget of over $ 300 million, has blamed a drop in its revenues since 2011 on dwindling audiences for opera worldwide.
