Metallica sues.. a perfume company

If you thought Metallica suing Napster was silly, you'll probably get a laugh from this one as well.
Metallica, the metal band now more famous from "Sue 'Em All" than "Kill 'Em All", has sued - again. After the lawsuits against Napster and Victoria Secret, they have now sued a French perfume company Guerlain for using the name "Metallica" for one of their recently released frangnances.

Earlier this year Metallica sued Victoria's Secret after they released a lip pencil named "Metallica".

I'm sure that everyone now buying the vanilla-based scent for $175 per eight ounces is doing so because they associate the name with the band... Yeah, right. I'd rather see the perfume company suing Metallica for stinking so bad nowadays. But that's just me.

i thought the word "metallica "was an english word meaning: metal like,long before the band even became famous.I dont have a dictionary at hand but im sure the english language was around before the band.

Dear Metallica, i am a great fan of the rock and metal scene,a headbanger, to sue these people for using a name that is simular in spelling but different in meaning is pathetic by all means.
Are your sales going to drop and the perfume sales going to rise, well yes if you carry on like plonkers.
Anyhoo, cant wait now to be in the mosh-pit wearing my Metallica fragrance under my Metallica t-shirt.
