Diddy Breach Copyright?

Monday, September 11th, 2006 at 14:22 by RJ Barker

Rap Superstar P Diddy will no longer be able to use his name in the UK after reaching an out of court settlement with gay British DJ, Richard ‘Diddy’ Dearlove.

Dearlove has been using the name ‘Diddy’ since 1992 and has been awarded a staggering £110,000 compensation and an agreement with P Diddy (real name Sean Combs) that he would no longer use the name ‘ Diddy’ in the UK. Meaning this article is probably breaching some sort of law already. This does of course leave Mr Dearlove open to a lawsuit from Ken Dodd and his travelling troupe of puppet entertainers the Diddymen, a court case we’d dearly love to see

TheSlant waits with baited breath to see what Mr Combs will now call himself in the UK. We’re also shocked by the amount of money paid out in compensation and can honestly admit that we’ve never mistaken Mr Combs for a homosexual remix artist, or a tattifilarious puppet.

    Wasn’t DJ David Hamilton also ‘Diddy’?

    Maybe Combs will change his name to P Dido - oh no.
    How about P Didgeridoo? Apart from trouble in Oz.
    Hmm. I can’t imagine he’ll have many complaints with P Dildo…
