Lady Antebellum Sues the Singer Lady A Over Name Change 

The platinum-selling country group’s new name was already being used by a blues singer. Now they’re asking a court to affirm “a trademark we have held for many years.”

Wait now … what?  A white southern band changes fairly racist name to something already taken by a black woman, then sues the woman when she didn’t just give them her name. I can’t believe someone — anyone — in the band’s organization didn’t raise a hand and say, ” Ummm … wait a minute … we might want to rethink this.”
