A funky blog color war

Twannahines_021608141edit The Courthouse News Service came through with a nice find in the nation's court dockets today: A New York blogger (FunkyBrownChick.com) is suing a Maryland blogger (FunkyBlackChick.com) over alleged trademark infringement and unfair competition.

"Brown" is run by Twanna Hines (left), who describes herself as a writer and aspiring comedienne who riffs on sex, dating and relationships.

"Black" is written by Yesha Callahan, whose topics range from mundane details about car rides with her son to more personal descriptions of her more sizeable body parts

Both sites are fairly tame (although the Herald's IT filters warned me of mature content on FunkyBrownChick.com), but Hines isn't amused. In her lawsuit, she says the "public confusion has and will continue to cause irreparable harm."
