A Canadian Yoga Studio Is Claiming That 'Big Baller Brand' Stole Their Logo For LaMelo's Signature Shoe
HNHH- The Big Baller Brand is accused of stealing logos again, this time by the owner of a Canadian yoga studio who claims the logo used on LaMelo Ball's Melo Ball 1 signature shoe is actually hers.
In an interview with CTV in Ottawa, Hana Engel, owner of the Modern Body yoga studio in Canada says,
"I don’t want it to be, ‘Oh she’s a little yoga studio in Ottawa Canada, who cares we can get away with this,' it’s my logo and I protected it for a reason," said Engel during an interview with CTV.
Why yes, the oh-so-orginal concept of taking two different letters and using their shared boundary to form a logo. Creatively speaking, it's almost impossible for the merging of paralleled lines to become an example of paralleled thinking. Sure, great minds might think alike. However, genius minds - like that of the owner of a small yoga studio in rural Ontario - are always responsible for unique and authentic ideas that can't be duplicated unless they are literally stolen.
Man, even with all the unforgivably stupid things that LaVar Ball has said and done, I never thought he would stoop this low. I mean, scouring the internet looking for niche workout facilities outside of the country that were unlikely to be familiar enough with basketball to know that a high school hooper jacked their intellectual property? Talk about absolutely despicable and totalllllllly intentional behavior that couldn't possibly be the result of a mere coincidence.
In all honesty though, I love this move from Hana Engel. Unless she's legitimately a crazy person (which is not totally outside the realm of the possibility), even she knows she is totally full of shit in claiming that this was a vicious, premeditated infringement on a small business' likeness. That said, why not use that angle to her advantage? We are talking about the 'Big Baller Brand', and going to small claims court to battle over a copyright is undoubtedly some "small baller" bullshit. Any obnoxiously egotistical, outrageously outspoken man whose company is worth it's weight in undeserved self importance would just make it rain with literally all the money that it would take to get this issue resolved in a timely manner. That would be the optimal outcome for some lady whose flexibility classes could probably use a financial kick in the yoga pants.
P.S, Marty's still better...
